The brothers Vyazemsky. From left to right: Prince Dmitri (1884-1917), Prince Vladimir (1889-1960), and Prince Boris Vyazemsky (1883-1917). They were the sons of Prince Leonid Dmitrievich Vyazemsky (1848-1909) and Maria Vladimirovna Levashova (1859-1938). The father served as the Governor of Astrakhan and leader of the Astrakhan Cossack troops (1888-1890). He was promoted to the rank of General (cavalry) in 1906. Their sister Lydia (1886-1948) worked as a nurse during the war. She died in exile in Paris. Vladimir and his mother Maria also escape to in 1919. Vladimir managed a stud farm raising race horses. His first wife was Countess Sophia “Sofka” Vorontsova-Dashkova (1892-1958). His second wife was Helen Karniskaya. His brothers Boris and Dmitri were not so fortunate. Boris was murdered by peasants (possibly in Tambov). Late that same year Dmitri was shot to death by the Bolsheviks. Boris and Dmitri’s wives both managed to escape Russia. Boris was married to Countess Elizabeth Dmitrievna Sheremeteva (1893-1974) and Dmitri was married to Countess Alexandra Pavlovna Shuvalova (1893-1968). This picture was taken on 9 August 1902 in St. Petersburg. T


The wives of the three brothers  were all first cousins..grand daughters of Count Ilarion Vorontsov Dashkov (died 1916) and his formidable wife Lily (nee Countess Shouvalova 1845-1924).Princess Lydia was married to Prince Vassiltchikov and the mother of 5 children including Princess Tatiana Metternich who died in 2007.
