Sorry to bring up an old topic but I found a small (very small) tid-bit about Princess Olga Orlova. She was born in 1872 and died in 1923. This means that she was almost 40 when the portrait of her posted by Olga was done by Serov in 1911. Just thought this was an interesting bit of info and at least we know that she survived the revolution.

Woooow, these are all great, I really like the one of Prince Dolgorukij with his family, ca. 1897, they look so "St petersburg", lol..

Who was Olga Orlova?

Princess Olga Konstantinovna Orlova was the middle daughter ( there were also two brothers) of Prince Konstantin Esperovitch Belosselsky-Belozersky (1843-1920,Paris).Her mother was one of the three beautiful sisters (another was the ravishingly beautiful Countess Zina Beauharnais)of the famous General Mikhail Skobelev.Olga seems to have inherited the Skobelev blue eyes, willowy & graceful she married Prince Vladimir Orlov a dashing cavalry officer and a intimate friend of NicholasII.The Couple lived on the Moika canal, where the Prince a descendant of a Brother of Catherine the Greats lover was renowned for both his caustic wit and his gourmet tastes.This led him to become enormously fat, his wife reputed to be the best dressed woman in the capital was so slender they were known as "flesh and bone".In 1916,Prince Vladimir fell foul of the Rasputin clique & was sent to the caucuses as viceroy to replace the late count Vorontsov-Dashkov.The family never returned north instead soon after the revolution they went to their property near Yalta. By then their only child Nicholas was married to Nadejda the younger daughter of Grand Duke Peter & his Montegrin wife Militza, also the Orlov's had seperated. After a harrowing time Olga left Russia with her son & his wife & elder daughter aboard the HMS Marlborough in the retinue of the Dowager Empress. Arriving in London she was reunited with her elderly parents & brother Serge who with his american wife had left via Finland.The younger couple settled in Kent but Olga headed to the emigree mecca, Paris where she was reunited with her son & his family. Vladimir was also there.... with his new wife, living at Lamorlaye the estate that had come to him from his father. In 1920 the french portion of the Orlov art collections inherited by Vladimir (& his bachelor elder brother who had died in 1916) were sold so there must have been some money afloat.Vladimir outlived Olga & died in 1927. Nicholas still the owner of Lamorlaye but long divorced from his first wife died in the early 1960's.Hope this of help....

  Thank you very much, lancashireladandre. Do you know did  some  member of Orlov family  came in Yugoslavia after the revolution?

Sorry L, have no idea if any of the Orlov family settled in Yugoslavia.There were also another branch the COUNTS ORLOV-DAVIDOV who were descended from another of the 4 brothers of Catherine the Greats lover Gregory Orlov, perhaps some of them settled in the Balkans.Jacques Ferrand the specialist publisher of aristocratic russian geneology might know.He is in Montreuil, Paris but I don't have a recent/exact address.

  I am going to Russian Ortodox church in Belgrade every Sunday, and there is coming one verry old Russian women who look like Olga Orlov. I think that she has some relationship with Orlov family. But I must ask her. Sorry because of my bad English, I am from Serbia.
