Duke Georg zu Mecklenburg was Grand Duchess Ekaterina Mikhailovna's and Prince Georg of Mecklenburg-Strelitz's grandson. Firstly he was married to Irina Michailovna Raievsky and secondly to Archduchess Charlotte (Karl II Habsburg's daughter).
He had three children from his first marriage and none from second.
I would like to know, who was Mr. Hassan Sayed Kamil, who was married to George's second daughter Helene. They had one daughter Sheila.

Thanks in advance!

Since I have recently made a connection between The counts of Carlow and the magnificant palace Oranienbaum, I would like to ask how come that GD Karl Mihail didn't married. Was he perhaps linked to some princess or not at all?

Karl Mikhail was Duke not Grand Duke :) aka Duke Mikhail Georgievich of Mecklenbourg-Strelitz. He really never married and none of Russian books on the Romanovs and their relatives ever mentions a reason why he was a single person. Possibly he was a sort of a bachelor like GD Dmitriy Konstantinovich happy to be a good uncle to his nieces and nephews.

Sorry  ;D. There are so many of them that sometimes you just can make a mistake.

Yes, it can be a good reason.
But, I don't know, well since you mentioned GD Dimitri, is there perhaps possible that GD D and D KM were homosexual? Is there in those Russian books on the Romanovs, you mentioned something written about this posibility? I'm asking this here because unfortunatly I don't have acces to many books on the metter, so, please, don't get me wrong.

GD Dmitriy K. was a woman-hater but nothing pointed out that he was homosexual. And Duke Mikhail is a complete mystery.

Do you ask about Duke Georg Alexander (1921-96) who was married only once? Or about his father Duke Georgiy and his 1st wife Irina Raevskaya? I have a photo of the last in one of the books on the Romanovs but that's from a private collcetion so I can't post that here.

I meant Duke Georg and his first wife Irina Raevskaya. Irina's mother was Princess Maria Grigorjewna Gagarine, so she was of noble birth. What about her father Michael Nikolajewitch Rajewsky, was he of noble birth to?

Of course he was of a noble birth, the Rayevskye are nobles.

Thanks, Svetabel! :)

I know nothing about the Rayevskye family, that is why I asked.
Were they wealthy? Where are they from, which part of Russia?

There were 3-4 branches of the Rayevskie, and spouse of Duke Georgiy belonged to the most famous and wealthy branch.

This is Duke George (known in the family as "Teddy") with his first wife Irina & children. I have many Mecklenburg & Galitzine family photos........
