Mistborn cover art by Sam Weber. I remember seeing this image in a Spectrum volume a couple of years ago, having never heard of the trilogy. Just started reading the books a couple of months ago and rediscovered this work!
Dress of Tsarina Alexandra Romanova (1872 – 1918) - Empress consort of Russia as spouse of Nicholas II, the last Emperor of the Russian Empire. Remembered as one of the most famous royal carriers of the haemophilia disease and for her support of autocratic control over the country. Her notorious friendship with the Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin was also an important factor in her life.’
Two princesses of Denmark enjoyed jewels. The eldest one, Alexandra, married the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) and was given by the Ladies of North Wales this jewel. The youngest sister, Dagmar, married Alexander III of Russia, gained the name Maria and gave birth to Nikolay II, the last Russian Emperor. It was her husband that ordered Faberge the famous Eggs collection to congratulate his beloved Dagmar-Maria (he called her Minnie) with The Easter.
