Rumor (Big Time Rumor-this tale is re-told constantly in Florida by Royal Watchers) has it in Florida that his response to the diplomats' offer went something like this:

I thank you gentlemen for your kind and flattering offer but I already have a position to which I have been elected.  I am the mayor. Therefore, I could not possibly have the time to be the Tsar!

I had the pleasure to meet briefly,Prince Paul Illinky (he liked to be called Paulie).  He was a very nice person and you could see in his manners that he was a perfect gentleman, an aristocrat without wanting to be one.  He was for a few years the Mayor of Palm Beach, which actually does not have a salary.  He used to come to his office in his yatch.  His wife is a very beautiful lady. Their photographs are in St.Peter and St. Paul Foprtress in St. Petersburgh.

Yes, wonderful photos of Dmitri and Marie, two of my favorite Romanovs.  However, is the second one for sure Marie, it doesn't quite look like her....

On another thread, it was mentioned about a possible affair between Queen Marie of Romania and Dmitri. Has anyone heard of this before?

I have never heard of this.  When was it supposed to have happened?  When Queen Marie came to Paris for her famous visit?

Where was the information first given? Was there a bio on Dmitri? It's caused some consternation on the other thread.  :-/

There is no a bio on GD Dmitriy. I did not find out any info on his flirt with Marie in short Russian articles about his life. :(
