After this tragedy,Teimuraz moved to the United States in 1949,where he married for the second time in New York Countess Irina Sergeevna Tchernyshev-Bezobrazov.He also died there(NY) in 1992,while his wife(born in 1926) should still be alive...If I am wrong correct me,please!


She passed away on 9th of July 2015. From 1986 she was the President of Tolstoy Foundation in New York...

I have recently started my Masters and one of the classes is about Russian history. One of the requirements of the class is to write a paper on an interesting persona and I immediatelly thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to write about Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich.

Can I ask for recommended literature, please? I already own "Gilded Prism", I also have a Russian book on the Konstantinovich family (but since I can read Russian slowly and need a dictionary beside me I prefer English pblication as of now) there are some diary entries published in "A Lifelong Passion" and I believe some mention of KR is included in Pavlovsk by Suzanne Massie. Can anyone point me to the right direction in finding more resources on KR himself?
