The authors relied on important information obtained from Russian and foreign periodicals, memoirs, and scientific literature. The English-language version of this book was expanded with contributions written by Arturo Beéche, the founder of Eurohistory and publisher of Eurohistory (The European Royal History Journal). Mr Beéche is an expert on European Royalty, as well as author of more than a dozen books about the various royal families that have shaped the continent’s history.

His only crime was being related to a dynasty of which he had not even been an official member. This is the compelling story of a young man, and a talented poet, who in different circumstances would have attained great heights. Destiny, however, played a sad role in bringing a brutal and early death to a promising life.
