Alexandra was the current Queen Elizabeth's great-grandmother. She was brought up more simply and casually than other European princesses but it created a woman ahead of her time. She was able to stand up to the imperious Queen Victoria. She was the most beloved royal of her day due to her service to those sick and in the hospital, those wounded in war, and the common villager. There was a lot of historical detail provided by excerpts from letters and eye witness accounts. History tells more about her husband King Edward VII and his penchant for mistresses but this book gives an inside look at Alix and Bertie's marriage as well as other royal marriages of the day.
