About Nicholas Constantinovich Romanov of Russia, Grand duke

Grand Duke Nicholas Constantinovich

is perhaps one of the most scandalous members of the Romanov dynasty. His father, the Grand Duke Constantine, was the second son of Tsar Nicholas I, whose name Constantine gave to his firstborn. The young Nicholas was a handsome man, he lived surrounded by pomp during the times when his father was in favour with the Tsar and acted as Viceroy of Poland. However, Nicholas was easily tempted by women, and when he met Fanny Lear, an American touring Russia, he gave her a diamond necklace he had stolen from his own mother. It was a scandalous offence, and Nicholas was whisked off to the ends of the Empire, to Tashkent (today in Uzbekistan). He was practically erased from all living memory; his name was struck from the Romanov family tree and he lost his rank and position. He never returned to Saint Petersburg nor did he see his family ever again. From then on Nicholas dedicated himself to improving the area where he lived, promoting the arts and so on. He married a woman who gave him two sons (one of them was killed in the Russian Civil War). Nicholas also had six illegitimate children, some of which had psychological problems. Another one died of a drug overdose while visiting his mother. Nicholas himself died shortly after the Russian revolution of pneumonia, on January 26th 1918. He was so popular among the locals that he was given a sort of state funeral by the Bolsheviks. He was buried in the Cathedral of Tashkent, which was later demolished by the Soviet regime.
