It was part of a huge gathering of royalty (that's just a small cropping) for the wedding of Louise Orleans and Prince Carlos of the Two Sicilies (widowed brother-in-law of Alfonso XIII of Spain)

Yes...I meant a ROYAL wife. I know he proposed to Ena and she turned him down. Alicky also shot him down as a groom for her eldest daughter Olga.

I'm not aware of any serious attempts to find royal brides for any of the Vladimirovichi. This seems a bit surprising, given that that they were all rich and highly eligible, and their mother was ambitious for them. The point is made in The Grand Dukes that no serious attempts were made to find a royal bride for Mikhail Alexandrovich either, apart from an attempt to link him up with Patricia of Connaught.

Yes, Kirill did marry Victoria Melita and Mikail fell in love with Beatrice of Coburg, but neither was 'suitable'.

Suitable in status and standing but too close in blood according to the rudder of the Orthodox Church. The marriage of Ernie & Ducky could not have happened had they been Orthodox Christians.

Precisely.
