Russian royalty. The great-grandson of Czar Nicholas I of Russia, and a cousin of Czar Nicholas II, Prince George was born in St. Petersburg, the youngest son of Grand Duke Konstantin and the former Princess Elisabeth of Saxe-Altenburg. The seventh of nine children, he had been raised in a stimulating artistic atmosphere, but his childhood happiness was shattered by the deaths of his father and four of his brothers during the turbulent years of World War I and the Russian Revolution. In 1918 he escaped to Sweden at the age of 15, together with his mother and 12-year-old sister, Princess Vera. He subsequently lived in Europe, but later emigrated to New York City. In August 1938 he was hospitalized for appendicitis, and after the surgery developed pneumonia, a complication which proved fatal less than three months later. The 35-year-old prince, a noted interior designer, had never married. Originally interred in Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Maspeth, Long Island, in 1950 his remains were transferred to the newly established Novo Diveevo Cemetery on the Tolstoy Foundation property in Spring Valley, Rockland County, New York. His sister Vera, who also remained single, died in 2001 and was buried beside him.
