Prince Igor was the sixth child of Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich of Russia by his wife Elisabeta of Saxe Altenburg. He grew up to be a slender, kind-hearted young man, who fancied theatre, was generally liked by people and spoke a bit too loud. He attended the Corps des Pages, an imperial military academy in Saint Petersburg. During the I World War he was captain in the Ismailovsky Guard Regiment and became a decorated war hero. But his health was quite fragile: he suffered from lung complications and a pleurisie in 1915, and even if he got back to the trenches, he couldnt walk quickly and often coughed and spited blood. In March 1918 he was sent to exile in the Urals by the Bolsheviks and atrociously murdered in a mineshaft near the town of Alapaievsk, along with his brothers John and Konstantin 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.
