So talked about Alexander 1. The Sphinx - a mythological creature. In a figurative sense, something incomprehensible and mysterious is called that (after all, the Sphinx asked riddles that are very difficult to solve). So the activity and the very personality of the emperor was very strange, dual. He loved beautiful words that really make it difficult to see real actions, many personal qualities of Alexander I were an obstacle to the implementation of the proposed projects - no experience, no perseverance, duality of nature, a desire to make an impression, secrecy, a desire to preserve power, the king only in words Republican, but in practice - autocrat.
