I assume you mean a sexual one, if so the short answer is no. Alexandra was very much the Czarina and Rasputin was very much a peasant, and she was very aware of her position but she really believed Rasputin was a holy man who had a powerful gift for healing, and she would indulge anyone who could bring her precious only son relief and Alexei became much better when Rasputin was around. It’s pretty much a sure bet the neither the Czar or the Czarina was aware of the malicious rumors. Try the book Nicholas and Alexandra for a biography
