   Queen Victoria's family spread across Europe and into Russia, where her daughter Alexandra married Czar Nicholas II.  The Prince of Wales (later to become King Edward VIIl) was brother to Alexandra. Alexandra send her brother presents of Samoyed dogs. The Prince was so enamored of the breed that he went on to show several between 1890 and 1900.   In 1888 a picture drawn to celebrate their Silver Wedding shows a Samoyed sitting at the feet of the Prince and Princess of Wales.  Paintings of Samoyeds are still in the present Queen's art collection.  After World War I (1917) very few Samoyed stock were exported out of Russia due to the Communist Revolution  that effectively shut down the borders.  Unfortunately, most of the Samoyeds kept by royalty were killed in the Russian Revolution. So by 1917, whatever stock was available in England, America, and other European nations was all that was used.    The breed had attained Royal status and was "protected from outsiders."
