Informal Photographs from the Albums of Grand Duke Mikhail Alexandrovich
Grand Duke Mikhail Alexandrovich had married Natalie Brasova on October 16th 1912 in Vienna without his brother Nicholas II’s permission. With her daughter from a previous marriage and their one-year-old son George, they lived in various places in Europe and in the fall of September 1913 rented Knebworth near London. When war started in 1914 they were allowed to return to the grand duke’s house in Gatchina near St. Petersburg.
