Greg King, Jacques Ferrand, the Encylopedia Britanica and a few other sources that İ have forgotten.

Where is the evidence of Felix's generosity to other emigres? I'm not suggesting it didn't happen, just asking for sources.

There are many stories of his generosity (and that of his mother during her tenure in Rome).Grand duchess Marie Pavlovna the younger,Pauline Gray (grand daughter of Natasha Brassova) A Kenneth Snowman  and Princess Tatiana Metternich are among thefirst sources that spring to mind

Felix Yusupov did not disclose the extent of his generosity even to his wife. It was only after he died that she found out how much he had given away to those in need.
