Marie Feodorovna (1759–1828), née Sophie Marie Dorothea Auguste Louise of Württemberg, was the second wife of Grand Duke Paul Petrovich, later Emperor Paul I (from 26 September 1776), and the mother of Emperors Alexander I and Nicholas I. She devoted most of her time to philanthropic work and setting up schools. She organised Russia’s first literary salon in her residence in Pavlovsk, she painted and drew, and made ornaments out of ivory and amber on a lathe.
