Being a romantic, I hope that he did have someone to love and love him back. Most likely not a marriage, or even a consummated relationship, but it would be nice to think that there was someone to give him love & affection in his last years when he was cut off from his family for long periods of time. A platonic love wouldn't be out of the question would it?  I just hate to think about how lonely he must've been at times and watching his brother and sister marry and have families of his own when it must've been obvious to him as his health deteriorated that this wouldn't be his own future.

The last post about sumned up what we hope was the case for George, and I think put together his sitiuation very well in fact. I think he might have had a platonic love, in fact it's more than likely he did, if his physical condition prohibited anything more than that. Perhaps it did not, but still that doesn't make us say that he might have married or had children, morgantically. There are always rumours of this sort, and although there might be good sources on that, some would say that about other things that aren't public, and can we judge them right or wrong? No, but we can use common sense. So I don't see anything morgantic. Everybody can say something about something that has not been settled in the public arena. One hopes George did have something; he did have a legendary sense of humour, for Nicholas long keot a box of George's jokes written down, and was seen laughing over them, years after George's death. One hopes that he had something to cheer him.

The woman who met with Maria Feodorovna was indeed the good Samaritan who came upon George and his motorcycle. She was not his wife, and was never rumored or suspected of being his wife. I have stated this many times on George threads, in case anyone is keeping score.

George did not die of a motorcycle crash. George hemmoraged while riding his motorcycle. This is not my opinion, this is per a physician I consulted along with the information that was released about his death. I have also stated this on several occasions.

It was also several physician's opinion, and not my own, that George was not physically capable of sustaining a normal adult sexual relationship, be it hetrosexual or bisexual. Again, I have stated this several times on this Forum.

If anyone has any interest whatsoever in reading what I wrote about George and will eventually be published in "The Grand Dukes" after my having to reveal and repeat (ad nauseum) my research, God love you. I guess I would prefer people know the truth about George when faced with the choice.

I was not aware that you are writing a book about GD George.  

Because of who my source was,  I highly recommend you privately contact Greg and Penny about  the information they have been told about GD George's  wifes and children, even though you apparently find this to be improbable with the information you know at this time.

Of course I agree, Lisa,  the truth is always best.

I hope you success with your book and will certainly buy it when it is on the market.

 I wrote an article on George, not a book. I am gratified that you would be interested in reading it.

I will indeed take your advice and do a bit more research as time permits.

More research is really the only way to clear these things up, although even then much of Grand Duke George's life will perhaps be lost in the shadows of history. I am sure it was a good article that you wrote. I would be interested in reading it.

Quite honestly, I don't worry too much about clearing up every rumor that comes down the pike. I was actually pretty satisfied with doctors telling me that GA was physically incapable of a "normal adult sexual relationship". However, not everyone is going to be satisfied with the opinion of scientists, no matter how informed the opinion is.

Since there will be some time before my piece goes to print, I don't mind chasing down a few more rumors. I still think what I wrote is good - one of my own favorite writers said it was "amazing" and so it will not change much, I think.

Yes, you have to track down the rumours and solve them to the best of your ability, and I am sure you have. I don't really believe that Grand Duke Geoge married morgantically or had children, but if people have good sources that I am not aware of, then I will listen to them. Also, if someone has good sources that he was incapable of anything in this line due to his health, and has good sources, then I will listen to them. There is nothing to suggest he had any sort of relationship with anybody in most surviving evidence.

A friend of mine who happens to be a descendant of the Russian Imperial Family recently traveled to Abbas Tuman and visited George Alexandrovich's palace, which still stands.  Although a bit forgotten, perhaps an understatement, the house is now occupied by a nunnery.  Yet one can still see traces of its former elegance.  A large portrait of George Alexandrovich hangs in the room in which he slept.
