User comments for Aleksey
This name is ADORABLE. It was the name of the Russian czar Peter the Great's son and heir (sometimes translated as 'Alexei'), who he later executed on account of his weakness and disinterest in his inherited country.
Aleksey Romanov was the youngest child and only son of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and Alexandra of Hesse. He inherited haemophilia from his mother Alexandra, a condition which could be traced back to her maternal grandmother Queen Victoria. Aleksey was a month shy of his fourteenth birthday when he was executed on July 17, 1918 by Bolsheviks along with the rest of his family. In 2000, he and his family were canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.
