The Nobility Association has a ball every year to raise funds for Russia I believe. This is where a lot of the nobility gather and it is in New York every year is I rightly recall.

That's true Linda - they call it the Ghost's Ball.

They are Ferrand and Ikonnikov. :) Never read them, though.

Arguably the most prominent noble families are featured in the website of Miroslav Marek, http://www.genealogy.euweb.cz/russia/russia.html

In reigning royal houses, the succession rules change to fit in with modern ideas and laws. I see no reason why the head of non-reigning royal houses should not be able to 'update' the succession in the same way.

Of course, the problem is always with those members of the royal houses who would lose out if the succession was brought in line with modern practices.

It seems sensible to me that Grand Duke Vladimir reinstated the right of women to succeed to the Russian throne. If Russia were to become a monarchy, they would not be clinging to archaic rules but would embrace change.

Look at the Spanish Royal Family - both Infantas married non-royal men, and Felipe married a commoner too. There was no great fuss and as far as I am aware no change in to law to allow it to happen. It just happened - the King did not object. Other countries such as Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium have changed as well - although I think laws were passed in their cases.

There really can be no genuine objection to Grand Duchess Maria and her son being considered the rightful heirs to the Romanov throne, in my opinion

thanks for the link Mapple. I also found more matches with the correct spelling of Ferrand and Ikonnikov but most sites just list them as a refference rather than showing their work.

Vechiolarry, sometimes we have to do the conversion ourselves. I got a very good gadget to transfer video to DVD on the fly, so I've been converting some of those old tapes (I never let go off) into my personal DVD collection. The Leopard took ages to come out on DVD and by them most of the actors that played the characters were dead. But this Criterion version was able to get Claudia Cardinale interviewed for the comentaries and once you listen to her the whole movie takes an even more personal approach. I also liked that the movie commentary was done by a history professor.

about herding cats...

Could we keep to one line of discussion please, preferably "Young Russian Royalty".
This is not the place to be chatting about favourite films, movie starlets, videos and DVDs etc.
And a gentle reminder that the Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna has her own thread.

thanks :)

They would be my choice too! Circumvent the whole debate about who is the rightful heir and pick a neutral third party. It would be like how Greece chose the younger son of the King of Denmark to be their King. Lady Gabriella would make a fabulous Grand Duchess!

I remember watching that show he is Prince Alexandre and he lives in New York. He is a model who is also an inspiring writer.

Exclamation Princess Catherine

According to Paul Theroff's Online Gotha, Princess Catherine of Russia died on March 13, 2007 in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Catherine, born on July 25, 1915 was the second child and only daughter of Prince Ioann (Ivan) Konstantinovich of Russia and Princess Helen of Serbia. Her older brother, Vsevelod, died in 1973.

Catherine married, in 1937, Ruggero, Marchese Farace di Villaforesta (1909-1970) They had three children, Nicoletta (widowed with two children, Eduardo [(married with a son, Federico] and Alexandra [married with a son, Santiago]) Fiametta (married, with two children from her first marriage Victor [married with a son, Matias] and Sebastian [married], and a son from a second marriage, Alessandro) and Marchese Giovanni (married with two children, Alessandro and Yann).

Catherine was the last member of the Imperial Family to be born before the Russian Revolution and the fall of the dynasty, and was the last surviving uncontested dynast of the Imperial House of Russia.

I'd like to second that. He definitly looks like like a Russian Czar. He reminds me so much as Tsar Nicholas II, yet only Nicholas' wife is related to the BRF through Princess Alice. Interesting.

And here is a picture of the last imperial princess of the blood, Ekaterina Ioannovna († 13 Mar 2007 in Uruguay). With her death the Imperial House of Russia consists of only three persons: GDss Maria, Dowager GDss Leonida (who is said to be in poor health), & GD Georgiy.

His father was very ill. My guess is that he got depressed from nursing and not having a role to fulfill after his father's death took his life. I don't know if we will know the truth. . .

The Romanovs were hardly ever practical. With all their wealth you'd think they would have socked some away out of Russia. Or at least have a trusted servant run through the mansion one last time cutting out the Rembrant's and Renoirs to take with. . . .

Interestingly enough, one of my favorite stories about Prince Felix Yousoppov (not really a Romanov but married to one) is that he cut his two favorite Rembrandt's (The Man in the Large Hat and The Woman with the Fan) out of their frames, rolled them up and took them with him aboard HMS Marlborough. They're now at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.

That was exactly what I was referencing.

With the exception of Grand Duke Nicholas, all of the surviving Grand Dukes and Princes of the Blood Imperial signed a manifesto acknowledging Cyril as the new de-jure Tsar. There is certainly no question both he and his son, Vladimir were rightfully the Head of the Imperial House.

Maria's position has been questioned because her mother, Leonida Bagration, was not of a sovereign, reigning house as required under the Pauline Law for an equal marriage. However, since Grand Duke Vladimir had already ruled the Bagrations were entitled to be considered Prince/Princess of Georgia with the style of Royal Highness, it was moot.

What is this manifesto? I've never heard it mentioned before. I don't dispute Kyrill and Vladimir as the rightful Heads of the Imperial Family in their turn. What I dispute is this business about them being Tsar. Even if every single Romanov recognized Kyrill as Tsar, it would make no difference. They do not have the power to choose the Tsar. While Kyrill would most likely (almost certainly) have been Tsar in a restoration he never was. He was simply Head of the Imperial House.

As for my problem with Maria, it is not her parentage I question. Every single living Romanov is either a product of a morganatic marriage or is in one. My issue with her is that she is a WOMAN. I am an ardent feminist but there is no precident for allowing a woman to be Tsar after Tsar Paul changed House Law. There is, however, a precident for ignoring morganatic marriages. Nicholas named Michael, who was morganatically married, Tsar when he abdicated. This is a de facto change in House Law.

As for the idea that Vladimir could change House Law, it is utterly rediculous. Only the Tsar can change House Law and usually it is done only with the support of most of the family (the notable exception being the forfeiture of a good deal of Imperial Land to the serfs against the urgings of his Uncles). Vladimir had no right to change House Law. He just wanted it to stay in his line. An understandable concern but not something which should define the fate of a dynasty.
