  • Nicholas Alexandrovich Romanov, full title: Heir, Tsesarevich and Grand Duke of Russia was Tsesarevich —the heir apparent—of Imperial Russia from 2 March 1855 until his death in 1865. Born at Tsarskoe Selo and nicknamed Nixa, he was the eldest son of Tsarevich Alexander Nikolaievich, himself the eldest son of Emperor Nicholas I of Russia, and Princess Marie of Hesse and by Rhine. In 1855, his paternal grandfather died, and his father succeeded to the throne as Emperor Alexander II. In 1864, Nicholas Alexandrovich became engaged to Princess Dagmar of Denmark but died of spinal meningitis a few months later. His early death at the age of twenty-one was a devastating blow to his mother.
