Tsarina Alexandra with her son Tsarevich Alexei Romanov. as Alexis was diagnosed as a haemophiliac and was not expected to live long. Both parents devoted much time to the boy and left the government of Russia to others. Alexandra was a very protective mother, but she was also determined to see that her son became tsar. Alexandra believed that she was more suited to do this than her husband:

Anastasia in the 1916 formal portraits of OTMA - I often see Alexandra in Anastasia's looks (especially the impish smile they share). However, in this photo, I really see Nicholas in her eyes.
