Title: Help! Looking to identify a Russian noblewoman (1930-40s)
Post by: robsonrr on August 16, 2014, 02:38:35 PM
Hello, forum users!

I want to thank a number of you who said nice things about a book I wrote a few years back (Solovki: History of Russia Told through its Most Remarkable Islands).

I am working on a couple of new projects, and need some help. I am trying to identify a woman who inscribed a copy of Krivenko's magnificent Coronation Album of Nicholas II (Koronatsionnyi Sbornik). Her name was Anna Dmitrievna Yusupova, and she likely lived in Europe (Italy, Czechoslovakia, or France) after the Russian Revolution. Any ideas?

Many thanks,

RRR

I can't find any references at all. If she was noble, it was not by being a Yussupov or marrying one, obviously, as Felix was the last.

If she was one of the Yusupovs, she would have been a princess.

Russian Wikipedia has a good genealogy of the Yusupovs by birth and marriage: Юсуповы: Родословное древо (https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%AE%D1%81%D1%83%D0%BF%D0%BE%D0%B2%D1%8B#.D0.A0.D0.BE.D0.B4.D0.BE.D1.81.D0.BB.D0.BE.D0.B2.D0.BD.D0.BE.D0.B5_.D0.B4.D1.80.D0.B5.D0.B2.D0.BE)
