Grand Duke George Alexandrovich's secret son
« Reply #182 on: August 08, 2013, 10:49:11 AM »
What to make of this 1903 newspaper article? (I tried to link it but it fails. Google: "Russian Pretender. SON OF A SECRET MARRIAGE CLAIMS. SUCCESSION") Text is as follows:

Quote

SON OF A SECRET MARRIAGE CLAIMS
SUCCESSION.
A great commotion has been caused at
the Russian Court by the appearance of a
new claimant to the Russian throne, says
the Berlin correspondent of the London
"Express." The new pretender is not a
rival of the present Czar, but will demand
to be recognised as his rightful successor
on the throne.
In the year 1893 the present Czar's
second brother, the Grand Duke George,  
then 22 years of age, secretly married    
Princess Nakachidze, daughter of a Cau-  
casian nobleman. The marriage cere
mony was duly performed in the presence '
of witnesses according to the rites of the
Orthodox Greek Church, and in accord
ance with all the legal requirements
necessary in Russia.
It is now claimed that the Grand Duke
George's eldest son, Prince Cyril, is thc
rightful heir to tho Russian throne, hav
ing a claim prior to that of the Czar's
younger brother, the Grand Duke Michael.
Prince Cyril is now nine years of age.
His partisans maintain that an objection
to his claim on the ground that the Grand
Duke George's marriage was morganatic
will not hold good.
Duke Constantine of Oldenburg, who
was the most intimate friend of the Grand
Duke George, has constituted himself the
champion of Prince Cyril, and is conduct
ing a regular agitation on his behalf. The
Czar is so incensed at this agitation that
he has issued an Imperial deoree declaring
Duke Constantine of Oldenburg to bo
insane, and appointing his elder brother,
Duke Alexander, to be his legal guardian.
Duke Alexander strongly disapproves of
his brother's attitude in this matter, for
his only son, Duke Peter, is married to
the Czar's sister, the Grand Duohess Olga.
Tho legal objection to the olaim made
on behalf of the Grand Duke George's
son will be that the Grand Duke George's
marriage was invalid for purposes of suc
cession, because it was contracted without
the consent of the Czar.

A search of the surname Nakachidze here don't bring up anything here, but on an old thread here for George someone seemed most upset with the idea that he was capable of treating himself to a f--k, even though he was capable of riding the motorbike on which he died, came from a highly sexed family, and a regular de-spunking is a fundamental driving need of 99.9% of young men, be they tubercular or well, whatever the period.

So has this story been put to bed as mere gossip, and if so, what was the Duke of Oldenburg really exiled for, as other sources suggest? And if true, where is Prince Cyril?

I like this telling image. It shows that in Georgia he did socialise to some extent, and so enjoy opportunities to meet a possible lover. Not completely the reclusive sheltered flower that is his image.

As for Georgi's abilities to conduct a love life while in the Caucasus, TB can be a fluctuating disease. He was in the Caucasus for something like seven years, and as he lived that long, his condition would have improved at times and deteriorated at others. My maternal grandfather was gassed in the First World War and also had TB (not sure in which order). For the rest of his life he had periodic flare-ups of TB, but lived a fairly active life, held down a demanding job, married and had four children. Admittedly, he wasn't as bad a case as Georgi, but he did eventually die from TB, in the cause of a final flare-up brought on by an attack of pneumonia.

George is the one making the funny face. Nicholas is right above him and Michael is second from the bottom.

Looking at pictures like these and then ones from later in his life its depressing to see the life drained out of him. It's easy to see why he was a favorite of everyone in the family
