SUBALBUM:  Tsaritsa Elizabeth Alexeievna, née Louise of Baden

The name Louise of Baden will recur, but this Louise was a naive beauty who went to the court of Catherine II, hyper-charged with intrigue and sexual intrigue to marry Grand Duke Alexander who would later become Tsar Alexander I. She was appalled by what she encountered; a factor in the poor state of their marriage. She had two children, but neither survived to adulthood. Her Wikipedia article is here.
