    Alexander III of Russia Document Signed "Alexander" as emperor, two pages (front and verso) in Russian, 8.75" x 14", November 1, 1893, n.p.. Alexander III (1845 - 1894) reigned as Emperor of Russia from March 14, 1881 until his death in 1894. Alexander was the second son of Tsar Alexander II. In disposition, he bore little resemblance to his soft-hearted, liberal father, and still less to his refined, philosophic, sentimental, chivalrous, yet cunning great-uncle Alexander I, who coveted the title of "the first gentleman of Europe." Although an enthusiastic amateur musician and patron of the ballet, he was seen as lacking refinement and elegance. Indeed, he rather relished the idea of being of the same rough texture as the great majority of his subjects. His straightforward, abrupt manner savored sometimes of gruffness, while his direct, unadorned method of expressing himself harmonized well with his rough-hewn, immobile features and somewhat sluggish movements. His education was not such as to soften these peculiarities. He was also noted for his immense physical strength. In very good condition.
