The Russian Empress, Alexandra Feodorovna, is dead.

After a health scare in April, the Imperial Family had believed that Alexandra was out of the woods, and her far-flung daughters--Olga, Princess of Wales; Tatiana, Queen of Lithuania; and Anastasia, Crown Princess of Belgium--returned to their new counties. But in May, the Empress died peacefully in her sleep, found the next morning by lady-in-waiting Ekaterina Alexeevna and the Empress' eldest sister Victoria.

Russia has been plunged into deep mourning, with funeral processions being carried out in both Moscow and Petrograd. The Emperor grieves his beloved 'Sunny,' while their young adult children face life without their mother. The vote on whether or not to abolish the monarchy has been indefinitely postponed, as all but the most hardened revolutionaries recognize it would be cruel to subject the bereaved Emperor to such a thing now--and even the revolutionaries realize, with public sympathy turned toward the figure of the lonely Emperor, it is a vote they would almost certainly lose.

Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna - Sister of Tsar Nicholas II, mother of Princess Irina

Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich - husband of Xenia, brother-in-law of Nicholas II

Prince Andrei Alexandrovich - eldest son of Xenia and Sandro, brother of Irina.

Princess Mary - sister, friend, and confidante to the Prince of Wales
