Grand Duchess Alexandra Georgievna of Russia (Александра Георгиевна), née Princess Alexandra of Greece and Denmark (August 30, 1870 - –September 24, 1891) was the daughter of George I of Greece and Olga Konstantinovna of Russia, herself the daughter of Grand Duke Konstantin Nikolayevich of Russia.

She was born in Corfu, Greece. When she was 19 years old, she was married to Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich of Russia. They had two children: Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, and Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich.

Seven months into her second pregnancy, Alexandra took a walk with her friends on the bank of the Moskva River and jumped directly into a boat that was permenantly moored there, but fell as she got in. The next day, she collapsed in the middle of a ball from violent labor pangs brought on by the previous days activities. She gave birth to her son, then lapsed into a fatal coma. Six days after giving birth to Dmitri, she died. Her husband later morganatically remarried Olga Karnovich.
