Group Description

This group has been founded for people from all over the world to appreciate the life and times of the nearly forgotten Queen Alexandra. Alexandra was born in Copenhagen, the eldest daughter of Prince Christian, later King Christian IX of Denmark, and Louise, the daughter of Prince William of Hesse-Cassel. In 1863 she married Edward, then Prince of Wales, and in the same year her father became king of Denmark and her brother king of Greece. Her sister was married to Tsar Alexander III.

In 1868, because of Queen Victoria's seclusion following the death of Prince Albert, Alexandra began to take a more active part in public life. In 1901 Edward became king: he and Alexandra were crowned together in Westminster Abbey on August 9, 1902. After the death of her husband in 1910 and the accession of her second son as George V (her first son, Albert, died in 1892) Alexandra lived at Marlborough House in London. She died in 1925 of heart faliure just shortly before her eighty-first birthday. The first and true Queen of Hearts.
