    Princess Alexan­dra Car­o­line Marie Char­lotte Louise Julia, or "Alix", as her im­me­di­ate fam­ily knew her, was born at the Yel­low Palace, an 18th-cen­tury town house at 18 Amal­ie­gade, im­me­di­ately ad­ja­cent to the Amalien­borg Palace com­plex in Copen­hagen. Her fa­ther was Prince Chris­t­ian of Schleswig-Hol­stein-Son­der­burg-Glücks­burg and her mother was Princess Louise of Hesse-Kas­sel. She had five sib­lings: Fred­er­ick, George, Dag­mar, Thyra and Valde­mar. Her fa­ther's fam­ily was a dis­tant cadet branch of the Dan­ish royal House of Old­en­burg, which was de­scended from King Chris­t­ian III. Al­though they were of royal blood, the fam­ily lived a com­par­a­tively mod­est life. They did not pos­sess great wealth; her fa­ther's in­come from an army com­mis­sion was about £800 per year and their house was a rent-free grace and favour prop­erty. Oc­ca­sion­ally, Hans Chris­t­ian An­der­senwas in­vited to call and tell the chil­dren sto­ries be­fore bedtime. In 1848...

    Queen Vic­to­ria and her hus­band, Prince Al­bert, were al­ready con­cerned with find­ing a bride for their son and heir, Al­bert Ed­ward, the Prince of Wales. They en­listed the aid of their daugh­ter, Crown Princess Vic­to­ria of Prus­sia, in seek­ing a suit­able can­di­date. Alexan­dra was not their first choice be­cause the Danes were at log­ger­heads with the Prus­sians over the Schleswig-Hol­stein Ques­tion, and most of the British royal fam­ily's re­la­tions were Ger­man. Even­tu­ally, after re­ject­ing other pos­si­bil­i­ties, they set­tled on her as "the only one to be chosen". On 24 Sep­tem­ber 1861, Crown Princess Vic­to­ria in­tro­duced her brother Al­bert Ed­ward to Alexan­dra at Speyer. Al­most a year later on 9 Sep­tem­ber 1862 (after his af­fair with Nel­lie Clif­den and the death of his fa­ther) Al­bert Ed­ward pro­posed to Alexan­dra at the Royal Cas­tle of Laeken, the home of his great-un­cle, King Leopold I of Bel­gium. A few months later, Alexan­dra trav­elled f...

    Al­bert Ed­ward and Alexan­dra vis­ited Ire­land in April 1868. After her ill­ness the pre­vi­ous year, she had only just begun to walk again with­out the aid of two walk­ing sticks, and was al­ready preg­nant with her fourth child. The royal cou­ple un­der­took a six-month tour tak­ing in Aus­tria, Egypt and Greece over 1868 and 1869, which in­cluded vis­its to her brother George I of Greece, to the Crimean bat­tle­fields and, for her only, to the harem of the Khe­dive Is­mail. In Turkey she be­came the first woman to sit down to din­ner with the Sul­tan (Abdülâziz). The Wale­ses made San­dring­ham House their pre­ferred res­i­dence, with Marl­bor­ough House their Lon­don base. Bi­og­ra­phers agree that their mar­riage was in many ways a happy one; how­ever, some have as­serted that Al­bert Ed­ward did not give his wife as much at­ten­tion as she would have liked and that they grad­u­ally be­came es­tranged, until his at­tack of ty­phoid fever, the dis­ease which was be­lieved to h...

    Queen consort

    With the death of her mother-in-law, Queen Vic­to­ria, in 1901, Alexan­dra be­came queen-em­press as con­sort to the new king. Just two months later, her son George and daugh­ter-in-law Mary left on an ex­ten­sive tour of the em­pire, leav­ing their young chil­dren in the care of Alexan­dra and Ed­ward, who doted on their grand­chil­dren. On George's re­turn, prepa­ra­tions for Ed­ward and Alexan­dra's coro­na­tion in West­min­ster Abbey were well in hand but just a few days be­fore the sched...

    Queen mother

    From Ed­ward's death, Alexan­dra was queen mother, being a dowa­ger queen and the mother of the reign­ing monarch. She did not at­tend her son's coro­na­tion in 1911 since it was not cus­tom­ary for a crowned queen to at­tend the coro­na­tion of an­other king or queen, but oth­er­wise con­tin­ued the pub­lic side of her life, de­vot­ing time to her char­i­ta­ble causes. One such cause in­cluded Alexan­dra Rose Day, where ar­ti­fi­cial roses made by peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties were sold in ai...

    The Queen Alexan­dra Memo­r­ial by Al­fred Gilbert was un­veiled on Alexan­dra Rose Day 8 June 1932 at Marl­bor­ough Gate, London. An ode in her mem­ory, "So many true princesses who have gone", com­posed by the then Mas­ter of the King's Mu­sick Sir Ed­ward Elgar to words by the Poet Lau­re­ate John Mase­field, was sung at the un­veil­ing and con­ducted by the composer. Alexan­dra was highly pop­u­lar with the British public. After she mar­ried the Prince of Wales in 1863, a new park and "Peo­ple's Palace", a pub­lic ex­hi­bi­tion and arts cen­tre under con­struc­tion in north Lon­don, were re­named the Alexan­dra Palace and park to com­mem­o­rate her. There are at least sixty-seven roads and streets in the Greater Lon­don area alone called Alexan­dra Road, Alexan­dra Av­enue, Alexan­dra Gar­dens, Alexan­dra Close or Alexan­dra Street, all named after her.Queen Alexan­dra Bridge in Sun­der­land was in­au­gu­rated in 1909. Un­like her hus­band and mother-in-law, she was not cas­ti­g...
