Wladimir Borisovich, Count Fredericks/Fréedéricksz/Фредерикс, last Minister of the Imperial Court of Russia. Obviously his last name was spelled differently by translation: Another way of spelling it was "Freedericksz". He was of the very highest nobility of the St. Petersburg Province. A major landlord of most all houses in St Petersburg and was educated at home. After the revolution was released to live out his life in Finland. As Minister of The Household and Minister of the Imperial Court, was present when Tsar Nicholas II signed his abdication. He's mentioned in the olde movie, called: "Tovarich"! Tsar Nikolai II was very close to him. Fredericks had two daughters: Baroness Evgeniya Vladimirovna and Baroness Emma Vladimirovna.

AN AMBASSADOR'S MEMOIRS
By Maurice Paléologue
Wednesday, July 22, 1914.
At midday the Tsar gave a luncheon in Peterhof Palace to the President of the Republic and the officers of the French squadron. No ladies were present, not even the Tsaritsa. We sat down at small tables for ten to twelve covers. It was very hot outside but cool, sweet breezes wafted through the open windows from the leafy shade and fountains and cascades of the park.
I was at the same table as the Tsar and the President with Viviani, Admiral Le Bris (commanding the French squadron), Goremykin, President of the Council, Count Fredericks, Minister of the Court, Sazonov and Isvolsky.
I was on Viviani's left and he had Count Fredericks on his right.
Count Fredericks, who will soon be seventy-seven, is the very personification of court life. Of all the subjects of the Tsar none has received more honours and titles. He is Minister of the Imperial Court and household, aide-de-camp to the Tsar, cavalry general, member of the Council of Empire, Chancellor of the Imperial Orders, Head of his Majesty's Cabinet and military establishment, etc. He has passed the whole of his long life in palaces and ceremonies, in carriages and processions, under gold lace and decorations. In virtue of his functions he takes precedence of the highest dignitaries of the empire and he knows all the secrets of the imperial family. In the Tsar's name he dispenses all the favours and gifts, all the reproofs and punishments. The grand dukes and grand duchesses overwhelm him with attentions for he it is who controls their households, hushes up their scandals and pays their debts. For all the difficulties of his task he is not known to have an enemy, such is his charm of manner and tact. He was also one of the handsomest men of his generation, one of the finest horsemen, and his successes with women were past counting. He has kept his lithe figure, his fine drooping moustache and his charming manners. From a physical and moral point of view he is the ideal type for his office, the supreme arbiter of the rites and precedences, conventions and traditions, manners and etiquette.
At half-past three we left by the imperial train for the camp at Krasnoïe-Selo.
