10 Shockingly Bold First Ladies

10. Alexandra the Tzarina – 1890s

Alexandra, as in the Boney M song, was the last Tsarina of Russia and married to Tsar Nicholas, Emperor of Russia. Alexandra was by all accounts a supportive wife, although it is said she was also pretty good at dishing out bad advice to her husband. She fervently believed in autocratic control of the country, and didn’t think it all that important to gain support of the people as a ruler. She eventually bore a son, Alexei, and passed on to him the haemophilia disease.
