Death: Apr. 23, 1974

Russian Prince. His mother's grandfather and grandmother were the artists of the Mariinsky Theatre. His uncle, Joseph Kshesinsky in 1927 became the Honored Artist of the Russia. On his father's side he was a great-grandson of the Emperor Alexander II. His Guardian was Grand Duke Sergei Mikhailovich. In 1919, Vladimir went with his mother to Kislovodsk and Novorossiysk and sailed abroad. In 1921, his father, Grand Duke Andrei Vladimirovich, recognised his paternity, not possible earlier. June 23, 1941, he was arrested by the Gestapo among other 300 Russian immigrants. In the concentration camp, Vladimir refused to support the Germans in the war with the Soviet Union, after 144 days after the arrest he was released. Soon he left France and came to England. He returned to Paris in August 1944 as a liaison officer between the British army, and de Gaulle. Soon he went to Rome for talks with Prince Umberto and Marshal Badoglio. Then arrived in Moscow as a translator. He is believed to be a British intelligence officer, acting under the guise of a journalist.
