Irina, Andre, and Feodor.

As ever, the infant Feodor looks just like his cousin Marie.

Irina was very like her paternal grandmother, Olga Feodorovna; even her husband commented that she "was the image of her father", causing me to wonder whether Felix fancied Sandro and chose his daughter for that reason....

 Irina looked more like her after the revolution and through exile.

Yes, I often found myself thinking the same when reading Felix's memoirs. Grand Duke Alexander was a very handsome man and it seems possible for Felix to have found Irina more attractive because she resembled her father so. Personally, I have always thought Irina resembled her paternal grandmother, and Aunt Anastasia.

I don´t know if I´m at the right place, but I have seen lots of questions about the Yussupoys at different sites here, and it seems as nobody knows so much about now-living decendants.
I have a friend, living in Mexico City named Nicolás Luis Romanov-Yussupov. I´m not up to date with the Yussupovs but in some way is he a Yussupov. I´ll ask him who his closest ancestors were, and perhaps for some generations back, and hope to be back with informations

Jan,

Princess Zenaida and Prince Felix Youssoupoff had four children, of whom only two survived infancy, Nicholas and Felix. Nicholas was killed in a duel in 1908 without issue, and Felix married Princess Irina Romanova in 1914. They had only one daughter Irina in 1915, who in turn had only one daughter, Xenia Sfiris in 1942.

The only Youssoupoff descendants today are Mrs. Xenia Sfiris , (granddaughter of Felix and Irina Yusupov) her daughter Tatiana Sfiris and granddaughters, Marilia and Yasmine Vamvakidis.

Hope this helps.

Irina, Andre, and Feodor.

Is that really Feodor on the right? Not only does that child look like a girl but he/she is wearing a dress, like Irina. Are we referring to the same child?

Its Feodor and lets remember that back then, some boys used not only dresses but also hairdos as girls

I understand the dresss and styling practices of that time, but "Feodor' really does have the features of a girl, and in any case,one wonders why his brother Andre next to him is styled both in hair and outfit  in traditional boyish  style.

I agree. It's astonishing at first glance. The dress is one thing, but the way they arranged the little boy's hair. You'd have thought Feodor was raised by Zinaida Yusupov and not Xenia :-)

Line up a hundred people and show them this photo and not a single one would say the girl in the picture was the one to the left as opposed to the one on the right.

Strange indeed even more when grown up, Fyodor had NO girlish features at all!! . But well...was Ksenia s option to make him that hairdo and put him on nice girlish dresses

PS: an example of a little boy with that kind of girlish hairdo

Hi,

Remember 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' - he had ringlets and a velvet suit with short pants....  He'd never make it now-a-days!!!

Xenia's and Alexander's children were all beautiful, boys and girl...  They grew into very good looking adults.
So, if Feodor looked gorgeous as a little boy, then maybe he could be mistaken for a little girl??

It's Feodor. You can see in this photo (he is in Sandro's right arm) that he wears a dress and has even longer hair than in the photo discussed. He did resemble a girl, at least at this age.
