Prince Konstantin, nicknamed Kostia by the family, was the fourth child of Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinoich of Russia by his wife Elisabeta of Saxe Altenburg. He was a silent, shy person who fancied theatre and was educated in the Corps des Pages, a military academy in Saint Petersburg. He served in the army during the First World Word. A priest who met him at the front, Hegumen Seraphim, wrote: "He was an extremely modest officer of the Guard of the Ismailovsky Regiment, much beloved by officers and soldiers alike; along with them he was a brave soldier who distinguished himself. I personally remember seeing him in the trenches among the soldiers, risking his life." In March 1918 he was exiled to the Urals by the Bolsheviks and later atrociuosly murdered in a mineshaft near Alapaievsk, along with his brothers John and Igor and other relatives and friends. His body was eventually buried in the Russian Orthodox Church cemetery in Beijing, which was destroyed years later to build the new Soviet Embassy. There is no data about what happened to the bodies buried there.
