Maria Feodorovna (Russian: , romanized: Mariya Fyodorovna; 26 November 1847 13 October 1928), known before her marriage as Princess Dagmar of Denmark, a Danish princess, became Empress of Russia as spouse of Emperor Alexander III (reigned 18811894).She was the second daughter and fourth child of King Christian IX of Denmark Her eldest son became the last Russian monarch, Emperor Nicholas II of Russia - she lived for ten years after Bolshevik functionaries killed him and his immediate family in 1918. Dagmar was known for her beauty. Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge said that Dagmar was "sweetly pretty" and commented favorably on her splendid dark eyes. Nicholas Alexandrovich was enthusiastic about her beauty. He wrote to his mother that she is even prettier in real life than in the portraits that we had seen so far. Her eyes speak for her: they are so kind, intelligent, animated. Knox met her when she attended Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich of Russia's wedding and wrote favorably about her beauty compared to that of the bride, Duchess Marie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. He wrote that Dagmar was less inclined to stoutness than the bride, she does not display such a plumpness of shoulder, and her neck rises more swan-like and gives fuller play to her finely formed head, with its curly hair and Grecian outline of face. " He also commented favorably on "her keen, clear, and flashing eyes. When considering Dagmar for her second son Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Queen Victoria judged that Dagmar is cleverer [than Alexandra]... She is a very nice girl. When she married, she didn't know how to speak any Russian. However, within a few years, she mastered the language and was so proficient that her husband wrote to her in Russian. She told an American minister to Russia that the Russian language is full of power and beauty, it equals the Italian in music, the English in vigorous power and copiousness. " She claimed that "for compactness of expression, " Russian rivaled "Latin, and for the making of new words is equal to the Greek. John Logan, a visitor to Russia, described her as the best dressed woman in Europe. " He claimed that Empress Elisabeth of Austria "excelled her in beauty" but that "no one touched" her "in frocks.
Charles Frederick Worth, a Parisian couturier, greatly admired her style. He said, Bring to me any woman in Europe-- queen, artiste, or bourgeoise-- who can inspire me as does Madame Her Majesty, and I will make her confections while I live and charge her nothing.
