Helene Kirby never married.   In the early 1960s, she was involved with Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia, a first cousin to her half-sister, but Louis Ferdinand did not consider her good enough ... Helene inherited from her late father, Sumner Moore Kirby.


I think they all live in Spain now. Princess Leonida's elder daughter married into wealth.

Yes would love to see more pics. Thanks.

So there is where the wealth came from ! Thanks Marlene for the info. I heard that Helene and her half sister Maria did not get along.

Although Vladimirovichi are not my favorite royals (mainly due to Kiril`s behavior after the abdication and generally due to their lust for power) I deeply sympathize with Victoria Melita who suffered so much to finally marry the man that she loved and who had to face her husband`s betrayal. no wonder that she was so much changed at the end of her life. i wonder how she learned about her husband`s affair. did anyone inform her? did she discover this herself? what happened?

The question about Kyril'sl cheating on his wife we had discussed in other threads (I think the Hesse Forum). The evidence is that we don't know and will never know the truth. The hints on Kyrill's extra-marital affair or something like that we can only find in Queen Marie of Romania's diaries if I remember correctly. Only hints..so we only can specualte on what happened in the early 1920s when Victoria F. learned something disgusting for her about her beloved husband.

Great photo ! Thanks for sharing it ! Not a lot of photos of Ducky, Olga, Nicky, Floppy togather. I once saw a photo somehere of Ducky and Alicky laughing. I think they were playing games. Don't know if it dates back to Hesse or in Russia ? Anybody saw it ?

Ashanti, the picture with  the Tsar in the middle is from a book isn't? I've seen that one before. Who are the other 2 ladies?

It's from Ferrand's Un Album de Famille. I cropped and enchanted the middle of the photo however I could scan the whole photo if you like?

The woman next to Olga in not noted, however the woman next to Victoria is Maria Nicolaievna Tolstoi, nee Princess Mestchersky

In the photograph in Reply 273, the nurses in the front row are wearing what look like British nurses' uniforms. Does anyone know where it was taken?
