THE DOWAGER EMPRESS., Tisdall, E.E.P.

Author Name    Tisdall, E.E.P.

Title   THE DOWAGER EMPRESS.

Publisher    Stanley Paul, London, 1957, first edition.

Seller ID   21151

271 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates and family tree. "Princess Dagmar of Denmark was Queen Alexandra's favourite sister, a lovely girl destined to become the consort of Russia's all-powerful Tsar Alexander III. Her path to the Imperial throne began dramatically, for her fiance, the Tsarevitch Nicholas, was taken suddenly ill, and on his death-bed begged her to marry his brother, Alexander. The latter was not an attractive man, but to Dagmar that dying wish was a c ommand. As the Empress Marie Fedorovna, she transformed her uncouth husband into a great and popular ruler; as the Dowager Empress, her influence over Nicholas II, the last Tsar, was for long a restraining factor in a turbulent and unhappy c o u n t r y . Had she triumphed in the final bitter strugle for power with the Tsarina and Rasputin, the tragic history of the Romanoffs, of Russia, and of the world might have been very different. A lively and detailed study of a compelling p e rs on al it y. " T in y foxing mark on front pastedown, five tiny holes in paper of inside front hinge, two very small dints on free rear endpaper, bump to bottom corner of both boards, slight bump to bottom edge of front board, wrinkling at bott om of sp ine , m ino r bro wni ng to edges of textblock.
