After the divorce from her Swedish Prince, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna was offered marriage by her distant cousin Sergei Leuchtenberg (I do not remeber if I read this in Maria´s autobiography or in Marion Meinert´s excellent bio on her), so matches between these families would of course have been possible. So the question is rather why shouldn´t it have been possible? ;)

I'm confused. The Grand Duchess Maria who founded the Leuchtenberg line was Maria Nicholievna, who was granted permission to marry her first husband by her doting father.

Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna the Younger married Prince William of Sweden, later divorcing him. Her second husband was Prince Putiatin.

Shorty after her divorce, while spending time with her father at Paris, Sergei Leuchtenberg appeared there tooand asked for her hand in marriage. This happend in 1913. Actually Maria had hoped that Ferdinand Montpensier, the younger brother of the Duc d´Orléans, would have asked her the very question Leuchtenberg had asked. ;)

Maria married Putiatin in 1917, didn´t she?

Are there any good books on the Leuchtenberg family apart from Adalbert of Bavaria´s "Die Herzen der Leuchtenberg" and "Palais Leuchtenberg"? Thanks in advance! :)

There are books and articles in Russian, which are only on GDss Maria Nikolayevna and her some famous descendants. As I know our good Russian historian Zoya Belyakova had been researched on the Leuchtenbergs but still no new book from her.

How did they meet? Nadezhda and Nikolai that is. I don't believe I have ever read about their love affair and marriage.

Oh, there was a real passionate love story when all secret police of the Russian Empire moved mountains just to separate Nikolay and Nadezhda. You can look at her photo in the 1st page of this thread - not a beauty but the contemporaries said she was a charming lady who even had time to drive mad the famous old Prince Gorchakov - she was his last love.

Thank you for some of the details, Svetabel. I'll have to see if I can find a book that mentions a bit more about their lives. Off to the forum's book review section!

I guess only one book in Russian is on Nikolay and Nadin's affair. Published in 2001, and a rare find. Sadly, I don't remember the ISBN.

A while ago Maria's grandson, George's child, Alexander (Sandro) Leuchtenberg was mentioned. In addition to being a (platonic) flame of Muriel Buchanan's, he was also one of the few Romanov relations to remain on good terms with N&A. According to Anna Vyrubova he begged Nicholas on the eve of the Revolution to ask the Grand Dukes to swear their loyalty to him. He warned Nicholas that the family was disloyal, that the Empire, and possibly his and Alexandra's very lives were at stake. Nicholas dismissed his worries as foolish.

Does anyone know who raised Alexander after his mother Theresa's death? Also, was he (initially at least) on good terms with his step-mother Stana?

Becouse Stana wanted to marry GD Nikolay )). Also in fact Duke Georgiy was a famous playboy who lead a fast life in Paris. The marital life with him was not a picnic definitely.

Are there any members of Leuchtenberg family today? If so, where do they live?
