All grandchildren of Nikola and Milena looked very much alike, IMO. ;D


--- Quote from: Gorm on May 28, 2005, 02:39:25 AM ---However, there was an incident at a dance in 1890 over who would dance with Jelena  that led a Finnish Count and one of the Youssopov's to fight a duel over Jelena. Because of the duel and the bad publicity that it brought Jelena was later expelled from the school and was no longer thought to be an appropriate bride for the Tsarevitch.

Hello all.  Does anyone know more information about this incident? Where (and when) did the ball take place, and who were the two men involved in the duel? Am I right that one of the men was the brother of Zorka's husband?

The two pretendants were Prince Arsen Karadjordjevic and Finnish Count Carl Gustaf Mannerheim.
Mannerheim was very seriously wounded during the duel.
Frightened for the reputation of his daughter, King Nikola withdrew her from the Smolny Institute, and she returned back definitively to Montenegro. Prince Nikola considered one moment to put her into the convent.


Didn't Elena later married the king of Italy?
