Anastasia had a lover the Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaiovitch and she div. her first husband to married a higher rank prince of Imperial blood. Even tho Georgiy was a son of the Grand Duchess Maria, Duchess of Leuchtenburg (which i think her father-in-law is a family member of Empress Josephine of France? )

Elena von Leuchtenberg und Eichstadt, later Countess Tyszkiewicz (don't know if this is realy her)

Elena had only one daughter Natalya and as far as I know she didn't marry. Is she still alive? Nataliya was born in 1923.

And, did Elena liked Montenegro and her mother's family?

Does anybody know if Andrej of Leuchtenberg was fighting in the Estonian army. Feb 1919 saw the bulk of fighting between Estonians and Bolsheviks but I could not find anything of the action around Narva. I suppose Andrej was not fighting in the Red Army.

In accordance with most reliable source, Rostislav Krasyukov, Duke Andrew died of typhus on February 22 or 25 NS, 1919 in Narva, Yamburg district of Petrograd region, being the member of General Yudenitch army.

OTOH, in the same article Mr. Krasyukov gives the Duke Andrew's birthdate as 15.6./8.7.1903 in St.Petersburg. Perhaps it is just typo as all the sources give June 25/July 8. In the recent Russian Imperial Family by Yury Kuzmin the death is shown as February 1919 near Narva, Estonia, and also "of typhus in the ranks of the Yudenitch army".

Meanwhile, first look at the history of the Russian Civil war give us that Yudenich was in Finland until summer of 1919, Narva was occupied on January 19 NS by Estonian infantry division. Very likely Duke Andrew was in the ranks of the Northern Corps (Severny Korpus) - White voluntary formation commanded by Colonel von Nef (sp?). Yudenitch was appoined only in June 1919. Russian Whites were allies under suspicion of the (White) Estonians.

Very interesting Macedonsky, since most sources on the net show Duke Andrew as k.a. So an error will be avoided.
Many thanks

As he is not royal, to avoid error it would be correct to omit him, am I wrong?
