Paul Gilbert reports that a wealthy Russian former MP has founded a monarchist political party.

Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna does not think that it's a good idea.

http://www.angelfire.com/pa/ImperialRussian/blog/index.blog/1438843/russian-monarchists-launch-own-party-romanovs-protest/

The last paragraph is a real hoot! A Pacific retreat for monarchists:

"On Wednesday, the Russian Ministry of Justice reported on its website that the Monarchist party was officially registered on June 25 this year.
Its chairman, 46-year-old millionaire Bakov is known for having founded a virtual state – the Russian Empire – located on a coral atoll called Suvorov near the Cook Islands in the Pacific Ocean. According to its website,  those willing to become nationals of the state, may apply for a passport via e-mail for the price of just 1000 roubles (about $US 31)."

Near the Cook Islands ? It is part of that that country and the claims of Bakov have been denied by that [legitimate] government. Still, it could be fun to have a passport with the Romanov eagle and the hammer & sickle. Odd arrangement.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

Where does Maria live these days ? I heard she and her rich sister had a spat after their mother died.

I know she is not a member of the House of Romanov but she is the half-sister of the claimant Maria Vladimirovna. I was wondering if anyone had information of Mrs. Elena Louise Kirby or a way to contact her?

I know that she still lives in Spain, but not close with her imperial sister. She is the one with the money (heiress to the Kirby fortune) and not Maria.

She used that money for quite sometime to help out her mother and her half-sister. Didn't it stop sometime ago? Maybe with Leonida's death? I believe GD George is her godson and, since she is unmarried, perhaps the fortune (or whatever remains of it) will go to him. She, Countess Dvinskaya, wasn't Sumner Kirby's only child though, she had a half-sister Gloria. I don't know about any other nephews or nieces she may have that she may choose to leave money to--or give it all to charity.

She can be seen in various online photos--mostly at Bagration events. According to Marlene, there was a romance between her and her stepfather's nephew Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia in the 60s .

Yes. According to one Spanish Royal writer, after a quarrel (after their mother died) between them, she threw her imperial half sister out. The sisters were not on talking basis.

Yes. It was a long gravy train. As long as Leonida was alive, there was an understanding...

Got it ! I don't think there was a photo of three together (mother & 2 daughters).
