Nicholas Alexandrovich Romanov (Russian: Цесаревич Николай Александрович Романов), full title: Heir, Tsesarevich and Grand Duke of Russia (Russian: Наследник-Цесаревич и Великий Князь) (20 September [O.S. 8 September] 1843 -- 24 April [O.S. 12 April] 1865) was Tsesarevich (more commonly but inaccurately confused with Tsarevich, a title that was abolished in 1721)—the heir apparent—of Imperial Russia from 2 March 1855 until his death in 1865. He was nicknamed Nixa.

He was born at Tsarskoe Selo, the eldest son of Tsarevich Alexander Nikolaievich, eldest son of Emperor Nicholas I of Russia, and Princess Marie of Hesse and by Rhine. In 1855, his paternal grandfather died and his father succeeded as Emperor Alexander II. His early death at the age of twenty-one was a devastating blow to his mother.
