Alexei Trupp

Aloise (Alexei) Yegorovich Trupp (Russian: Алоизий (Алексей) Егорович Трупп, Latvian: Aloizs Lauris Trūps, 1858 – July 17, 1918), was a footman in the household of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. Trupp was born in Vitebsk Governorate, Russian Empire (now Madona Municipality, Latvia). He was killed with the Romanov family at Ekaterinburg following the Russian Revolution of 1917.

Like the Romanovs and their other servants, Trupp was canonized as a martyr by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia in 1991 as victims of Soviet oppression, while the Russian Orthodox Church canonized later only the Romanov family but not their servants. Trupp himself was of the Roman Catholic faith and was not Russian Orthodox.[1]
