Goodness, she certainly was very chic as well as beautiful.  Mrs Leeds - was she married to William B.Leeds, a millionaire?

Yes, she was married to William B. Leeds from 1921 - 1930 ;)  .....and I have to agree, she certainly was very chic and beautiful!

Thanks for that information Val.  How did she and William meet?  Does anyone have any pictures of them together?

William was the son of Nancy Leeds ( who became "Princess Anastasia of Greece" )who married Xenia's uncle Christo.

So Xenia married her step-cousin..

Does anyone know where is Ksenia Georgievna buried?  I know that she died (and may have been buried) in Glen Cove.

Thanks in advance

That sounds complicated ( in the best tradition)!  Was it Xenia who entertained Anna Anderson in America?

The Camera of the Tsars said Xenia and Willliam's marriage turned out pretty badly.  

But I read somewhere that they were the model husband-wife until Xenia hosted AA.  

So, which one is true?

I have sort of heard that before.  What exactly was it then that caused the problem between Xenia and William in relation to AA?

I guess money was probably one of the reasons.  But maybe also b/c of AA's strange behavior and Xenia over-supporting AA?
