Very good condition. Queen Alexandra (Alexandra of Denmark) was Queen Consort to Edward VII of the United Kingdom and thus Empress of India during her husband's reign. Queen Alexandra was born in 1844, and married Edward VII when she was 19 years old. She was heavily involved in helping various charitable causes - most notably the poor, and the veterans of England's many foreign wars during the period. Alexandra is widely regarded to have been one of the most beautiful Queens of England. She died in 1925.
