I agree that you just look at his face and know he is a Prince. That is very well put. As for photos on the new users part of the forum there is something. Read this part of the forum, there is a thread about how to post photos, and if you have questions after that, it says you can contact Laura Mabee by private message. I myself am not that good at posting photos-generally you put the address of the photo between the img tags by clinking an icon of the picture above, where it just shows a photo. Direct linking I understand is not allowed, and you need to have your photo online on something like photobucket or image shack so you have img tags. But not being very good at this myself, Laura Mabee would be very helpful for you.

For my part when I see this picture ::), well there is no doubt that behind this face there is a mysterious life, an story that deserves to be tale to the others. To know how powerful was Russia at this time through the eyes of a powerful and loved man :).

I am glad you  were able to post that! I agree with your analysis of the photo of Prince Felix. He was one of the more fascinating people in Russian history, and that's saying alot.

Yeah I managed to post this one 'cause I got from the Internet. But  I have more pictures of Félix in my computer and to post these ones I don't know how to do.
I've read the post dedicated to how post photos, but it is too difficult to understand.

Yes, I know it is rather hard to understand. I would like to see your other photos of Prince Felix. I think you should private message Laura Mabee. She is very helpful. If you have any other questions, just post them here.

Does anyone have any information regarding Vera Korelli.  In Greg King's "The Man Who Killed Rasputin" she is mentioned in a police report as "a dancer" and having been at the Moika the night of the murder.  I wonder who she was, if she ever wrote her memoirs or what happened to her.

Thanks for any information anyone might have.

Was it King's book, or Radzinksky's that referred to her as Felix's 'cousin?' If she was indeed a cousin, it had to have been on his father's side, since his mother had no living siblings. Anyone know?

Greg King's book quotes from a contemporary police report that she was there and is refered to as a "dancer" and FF's cousin.  Radzinsky makes no mention of her (or the report).  Her account in the police report puts Nikita and Feodor Alexandrovitch there as well.

Her name sounds familiar, but I can't make the connection.  Now that I've been thinking about it I remember her be refered to in some other account(s), but I can't remember which one (s).  Has she ever been discussed on the forum before?

Simanovitch (Rasputin's secretary) wrote that she was a witness to the actual shooting.  He puts NA & FA there as well.

I would really like to know more about this mystery woman.

It seems Felix and everyone else except the police seem to deny there were even women present that night. The other woman was named Mariana, I forget her last name, she was Dmitri's stepsister, the daughter of his father's new wife by her first husband. Anna Vyrobova mentioned her being there, she knew her personally. Both of the women were seen being put out of the house around 6am, seemingly against their will but by someone inside who thought it for their own good. As for the young brothers of Irina, there is a report of three men leaving in a car just before dawn. Felix tells in his account that he drove back to his parents-in-law's home (where he had said he'd been staying looking after the boys while the parents were out of town) where he was met as he came in the door by one of the boys begging for details of the murder. It is very possible to me that the 'three men' were Felix and these two boys, they were tall teenagers. Of course he'd want to cover for them and hide their involvement, as well as cover his own hide for exposing them to such a bad situation. Same for the women. Felix's account has left out a lot of people who were there that night though evidence supports it (don't forget Oswald Raynor, his friend from Oxford, the British agent now rumored to have fired the fatal shot on Rasputin) So in this way, even as a murderer, Felix kept his word of honor by not ratting these people out. This is one reason I have wondered if maybe this is why Dmitri was so mad at him, because he didn't cover for him?

Thank you for the information Annie.  You always provide such fascinating detail.

I remember reading somewhere that after the Tate murders in 1969, someone said that if everyone who claimed to have been invited to but not gone to the house that night , Sharon Tate could have expected dozens of people that night.  The same probably holds true of the events at the Moika.

I remember my Grandmother telling me that during a party in the 1930's, FF mentioned that two of his brothers-in-law were there.  Irina was so livid that she left without him.  He said nothing more about NA & FA being there--but finished his story and stayed for some time afterward. It's the only time that I've heard of that FF mentioned that IA's brothers were there.  She always accepted it as fact.  It's hard to believe that he would say that in IA's presense, perhaps he was drunk.  It is interesting though.

Regards,
Alexei
