The princess who married a bear.

Marie Dagmar was a Danish princess who married the future Alexander III. This was a case of opposites attracting. Two such different personalities came together in harmony to produce a happy family. Marie loved parties, people, dressing up, and all the gaiety that court could provide. She was immensely popular with the Russians. As Dowager Empress (widow) she had great influence over her son, Nicholas II. During the 1917 revolution she fled the country, living out her days in England.
