Pavel Konstantinovich Aleksandrov (1808-1857) - pupil (alleged illegitimate son) of Grand Duke Konstantin Pavlovich, adjutant general, participant in the suppression of the November uprising, the owner of the estate Alexandrovka.
He was considered the illegitimate son of the Grand Duke Konstantin Pavlovich from his favorite Jos Efins Friedrichs; born March 24, 1808; Emperor Alexander I, personally present at baptism, was his recipient from the font. True, many doubted the paternity of Konstantin Pavlovich. Interesting details were left in the memoirs by the famous hussar Denis Davydov [1]:
... Although the prince could not have children because of physical disabilities, but Mrs. Friedrich, whose husband was elevated from the courier to the rank of city mayor, first in Lutsk, and then in Dubno, as if she had given birth to a son from him, named by Pavel Konstantinovich Alexandrov. Although his imperial highness could know better than anyone that this was not his son or even the son of Mrs. Friedrich, who hoped by this means to bind the prince forever to himself, he loved this boy very much; the physician who was with him, being favored by his highness and tormented by remorse, considered it necessary to reveal the truth to the prince, who reassured him by announcing that he had already known about this circumstance. It is necessary to give justice that Ms. Friedrich, not appearing anywhere with the Grand Duke, behaved very modestly; while the guard was stationed in the outskirts of Vilna before the Patriotic War itself, she appeared at the festivities, accompanied by some obedient headquarters officer. Konstantin Pavlovich was very attached to Josephine and his son: he missed them and wrote in 1813 from a campaign Count with V.F. Vasiliev:
... Tell them that I love them very much ... I would be happy if I were with my family in Strelna !.
Constructed by decree to the Governing Senate on April 27, 1812 in the noble dignity, Alexandrov, in the same year, four years old was recorded he was a cadet of the Life Guards in the Horse Regiment and, a few days later, was promoted to cornet. Aleksandrov’s upbringing and education was entrusted to the well-known teacher Count Moriol, under the direct supervision of General D. D. Kurut. On January 8, 1823, Aleksandrov entered the active service and, with production on assignments, was transferred to the Podolsky cuirassier regiment; On May 12, 1829 he was appointed adjutant wing and on June 14 promoted to staff captain; without leaving the regiment, he took part in the ranks of his participation in the war of 1831 against the Polish rebels. Differences in the battles of Grokhov and Vilna delivered to the Order of St. Alexander 4th degree Vladimir with a bow, a gold sword with the inscription "For courage" (August 7) and the rank of captain (October 6). At the end of the campaign, on January 1, 1832, with the same rank, he was transferred to the Life Guards Horse Regiment.
For two days, from December 4 to 6, 1833, Aleksandrov, renamed Lieutenant Colonel, was listed in the cuirassier’s heir Tsesarevich regiment, and then returned to the ranks of the Life Guards of the Horse Regiment, with the same rank of captain.
January 8, 1837 Aleksandrov was promoted to colonel, the following year he was appointed commander of the 1st division, and on April 7, 1846 he was promoted to Major General, enlisted in His Majesty's retinue and with the appointment of to melt at the Guards Corps.
June 22, 1851 Aleksandrov was ranked among the persons who belonged to the Person of the Sovereign Emperor, on November 17, 1855 he was appointed adjutant general, and on August 26, 1856, with the last rank, he was promoted to general rank lieutenant. Among other awards, he had the Order of St. Anna of the 1st degree and St. George 4th degree (December 17, 1844, for the immaculate length of service 25 years in officer ranks, No. 7155 on the list of cavalier Grigorovich - Stepanov).
After a fire that happened in Abo and destroyed most of the library of the academy, an appeal was made on entire empire donate books to Finland. One of the largest gifts was the donation of Pavel Konstantinovich in 1832. The “Alexander contribution” included valuable books from the libraries of Grand Duke Konstantin Pavlovich and the Marble Palace and consisted of 24 thousand volumes, of which 5 thousand were fiction. In 1842, a separate building of the university library was built in Helsinki, which made it possible to single out books in Russian from the general mass and create a special library, “Russian Library at the University of Finland [2].”
Alexandrov Died in St. Petersburg on October 23, 1857 , excluded from the lists on November 2. After the death of his daughter, his grandson, Prince Alexander Lvov, became his heir.

He was married from October 29, 1833 to maid of honor Princess Anna Alexandrovna Shcherbatova (1808–1870), daughter of chamberlain Prince Alexander Alexandrovich Shcherbatov (1766–1834) and Princess Praskovya Sergeevna Odoevskaya (1773–1851); sister of N. A. Shcherbatov. The wedding was in the presence of the entire courtyard in the Winter Palace, the emperor and empress were planted by father and mother. In her youth, Princess Shcherbatova was a wonderful beauty, tender and fragile, with a flexible and graceful camp, with gorgeous black and serious, almost stern, eyes and beautiful blonde hair. But being beautiful, she was even more known in society for the limitedness of her mind, especially on the following occasion. Emperor Nicholas I, shortly after his coronation, meeting her at a ball in Moscow, asked if she liked the coronation. “I liked it, Your Majesty,” Shcherbatova replied, “that I would like to see another sooner.” According to Dolly Fikelmon, Alexandrova had a pretty face, but not a drop of her mind, however, she knew how to stay well in society [3]. The couple lived openly in their own house on Bolshaya Morskaya d.41, which went to their only daughter. In the 1870s, she sold it to the German Embassy.
Alexandra Pavlovna (1836–1884), maid of honor, married to the adjutant outbuilding, Prince Dmitry Alexandrovich Lvov (1833–1874), who later became the Stalmeister of His Majesty’s Court, died in insanity. According to contemporaries, in her youth she was a sweet and kind girl, but too talkative than reminiscent of her mother, outwardly she was pretty beautiful, but too full [4]. Sources
