Russian Noble and Princely Families
 
This article is about a Russian Prince that would be nowadays 250 years 'young'. I could not find where to place it since is not about the Romanovs but the other families that ruled the internal affairs within the empire.

Prince Yusupov, the richest Russian of 18th century

And to start, I wondered if any descendants of Felix Youssoupov and Princess Irina of Russia are still around today. I believe their only daughter had a daughter too, who married a Greek, but my volume of 'Lost Splendour' doesn't take the family geanology much further I am afraid.

Irina's greatgrandaughter Tatiana was married to Alexis Giannakoupoulas. Tatiana was born in 1968, so there is no reason why she wouldn't be alive, of course, young people die, too. I do not lnow of any children of her's.

Check out:

Felix Yussupov - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There is a section on his decendants..

Lost Splendor and Massie have attested that the Yussoppov's wealth was vast and grand. Anybody know just how much they owned and what they lost in the Revolution?

She is still alive. Her first marriage ended childless in divorce. She is now married again, to Anthony Vamvakidis. They have two young daughters, so the bloodline goes on! (babies' births were posted on AP when they happened, there was a pic of Xenia holding one but I can't find it now)

pictures of Tatiana (thanks Ashanti)

Well Lex, she came from Xenia and Irina, of Course she'd be beautiful!!

COUNTESS 02-19-2008 08:49 PM

She is beautiful. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Xenia was never beautiful.

I've always thought she was, the eyes being a little too wide, exotic-looking, really.

JPhinala 02-20-2008 02:31 PM

I quite agree. Xenia was very attractive. A lot of that was her demeanour but I would imagine lots of Tatiania's beauty comes from Felix. His features are very evident in her. Especially in the first picture.

Pixilated 10-30-2008 06:13 PM

Xenia is the most stunning, exotic woman I've ever seen in pictures! Her aura seemed to be shy but came off as haughty.How could you not call this woman beautiful?!

Didn't Felix have several male romantic interests? Including at least one of Irina's Romanov cousins???

It seemed to be so...It's known that he had a particular friendship with Grand-duke Dmitri Pavlovich, with whom he killed Rasputin, and it is known that he liked male companies...

Russophile 11-18-2008 08:11 PM

It was that friendship that Nicholas and Alexandra looked at closely when Dmitry wanted to further something with their eldest daughter Olga. They disapproved.
Felix had a history of cross-dressing (see the Alexander Palace website for a free copy of "Lost Splendor" Felix's autobiography) and enjoying the company of males, though he really was fond of his wife Irina, and she of him.

CarolinaLandgrave 11-18-2008 08:29 PM

I have no doubt - from all that I have read and seen they were totally fond of each other!
I'll have to find where I read about him and one of the Romanov Grand Dukes....

thanks Russo!!

You might try Greg King's "The Man who Killed Rasputin."
:flowers:

CarolinaLandgrave 11-18-2008 09:59 PM

I found it!!
Page 85 of Greg King's The Court of the Last Tsar......
it was Grand Duke Dimitri Pavlovich...... he was very infatuated with Princess Irina and with Felix....
and was quite distraught at their marriage - although it seems that it was more so over Felix!
Which comes full circle.... wasnt Dimitri one of the Grand Dukes in in the Rasputin killing?

Russophile 11-19-2008 01:15 AM

Yes, he was, and lucky for him, too. He was banished from the court to the east and was able to escape the revolution that way. His decendents live in Florida. They go by the name of Illynskoe.

Dmitri's son, Paul, was for several years the mayor of Palm Beach, Fl. He passed in 2004.
