Question by With her head in the clouds: Why didn’t Tsar Nicholas 2nd and Tsarina Alexandra try for another son after Alexei?
They would have been aware that Alexei wasn’t likely to survive to be Tsar and it would be unlikely he’d survive long enough to have an heir. (He wouldn’t anyway) but why didn’t they they try for a second hopefully healthier son who could take the throne if Alexei didn’t survive to take it.

They had four healthy girls before Alexei. Odds are they DID try, but no one outside the royal household knew whether or not they did.
