Audrey was definitely born in 1904, although her date of birth is reported as either July 4th or January 4th. I'm going with the former, but nonetheless, she probably married the Grand Duke at age 21 or 22, whereas he would have been about 35.

This was yet another marriage that exposes the fallacy of the often common assumption that and older man should marry a younger woman and "mold" her. The reality was, while there was geniune regard and respect between the two, she was likely too young to be a long term companion for him, and he was far too scared from his life experiences to be the kind of husband she needed.

They are, however a most interesting family and Audrey appears to have been a fascinating woman.

thank you for your answer and yes I agree with you, it's a huga age difference! It probably had a big part in their marriage defeat. To be from different culture, different social background, different country, different age, raise in a different religion... sometimes doesn't help. I find rather strange they didn't feel it befre the wedding, may be it's because the courtship was too short, I don't know

Audrey got along very well with Dmitri's sister GD Marie.  It was also a good match from a social stand point.  Dmitri was Royal and Audrey had money!

I am sure family members on both sides pushed for the marriage.

There's a copy in a book on GD Paul's descendants by Jacques Ferrand (sp?).
