[XENIA (Grand Duchess, 1875-1960, Sister of Nicholas II of Russia and Wife of his Cousin Grand Duke Alexander) with her husband Grand Duke ALEXANDER (1866-1933, head of the Air Force in 1910)]

Exceptional unsigned Russian postcard photo showing them half length, seated together on a sofa, 5½" x 3½", no place, (Petrograd), no date, c.

It is very rare to find a postcard of the couple at this period as they were on the verge of divorce, which did not happen as the Grand Duchess turned to the church for help and they would not sanction a divorce. From this time onwards they were to lead increasingly separate lives.
