Tsar Nicholas II reading the St Petersburg News in the Mauve Boudoir in the Alexander Palace at Tsarskoe Selo. He was closely related to the British Royal Family, his mother, formerly Princess Dagmar of Denmark, being the sister of Queen Alexandra: he was thus a first cousin of King George V. In 1894 he married Queen Victoria's granddaughter, Princess Alix of Hesse.
