Alexei Trupp

Aloise (Alexei) Yegorovich Trupp (Russian: Алоизий (Алексей) Егорович Трупп, Latvian: Aloizs Lauris Trūps, April 8, 1856 – July 17, 1918), was the Head 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.

Together with the Royal Family, Trupp was canonized as a martyr by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia in 1981. He was a Roman Catholic, not Russian Orthodox.[1] But there are examples of martyrs in the Early Church who had not been baptized, but were considered to have been baptized in their own blood.

The Moscow Patriarchate canonized the Royal Family as Passion Bearers in 2000, but they did not canonize Trupp.
