Felix  was able to go back to St. Petersburg, and  hide two hundred and something diamond broches  and some art work from one of the Yussupov Palaces. As I said I have not being able to find anything regarding The Yussupov in exile, but I remember reading  something about Felix down to his last Kopeck making an scene at Christies were his Mother's jewelery was to be auctioned.
Being the Yussupov, the wealthies family in Europe at that time, the most logical thought, will be that they had some investments in other countries, but maybe the did not have anything outside Russia. Does anyone knows anything about this?

Yes I had that idea too, that there had been only one leader of the provisional government before the Bolsheviks overthrew the provisional government.
I checked the name on the Internet, and turns out that Kerensky was the second leader. the first was Prince George Lvov. The first time I read that name was in a letter from GD Dimitri where  he says  he sent a telegram to prince Lvov expressing his willingness to support the provisional government.
I learn something interesting today. Thanks

I understand that after  the Tsar was removed from power, there was someone who took control of Russia.


It was not Lenin. Who was he?

Well, I read  a letter from GD Dimitri to Felix Yusupov yesterday in the Alexander palace site, and in that letter, GD Dimitri is practicly begging Fellix to write him back. It is obvious they were very close friends, and  you can actually feel  the closeness between them when you are reading that letter.
Is there any information regarding further contac between them after the revolution??

I read somewhere that  Princess Yussupova was able to flee to Yalta and then take a British ship with the remaining members of the  Imperial family. I saw a picture of her in exile while she was living in Italy, but  I have not been able to find anything regarding her life in exile. Where did she live?. What was her life like?, Did she share the same faith as Grand Duchess Vadimir who could not take her lost and died shortly after the revolution?, Where is she burried?

I read somewhere that Grand Duke Dimitri Pavlovich Romanov and Prince Felix Yussupov  did not remain friends in  exile. Did Felix Yussupov and Grand Duke Dimitri Pavlovich Romanov ever saw each other again?.
Does anyone know that reason(s) why the split appart?
