GD George Alexandrovich (1872-1899) - Nicholas II's brother
It's a shame there isn't a thread about this handsome Romanov, so I started this one.
Grand Duke George Alexandrovich of Russia was the son of Alexander III and Maria Feodorovna, the younger brother of Nicholas II and Tsarevich form 1894 to his death. He is described as a very handsome man (to which description I agree), full of fun, with great sense of humor and a well-loved member of the Romanov family.
I would love to know more about his life and personality. What was he like? Were there any love interests for him during his short lifetime? To which of his siblings was he closest to? There is this rumor; that he had a lover and illegitimate children while on Caucasus - is it true? Are there any primary sources such as his diary, letters etc. preserved at the Royal Archives or the Russian State Archives?
And is there any book in English or Russian that sheds some light to his mystery?
Please share some photographs if you have any.
