Russian Baron. Ustinov was a major collector of Palestinian antiquities. His collection ended up at the University of Oslo, Norway. On 12 January 1889, Ustinov married Magdalena Hall (1868–1945). Her father was Moritz Hall (1838–1914), a Jew from Cracow and cannon-caster of Negus Tewodros II of Ethiopia, who was converted to Protestantism by missionaries of the St. Chrischona Pilgrim Mission. Her mother was the Ethiopian court-lady Katharina Hall (1850–1932), also known as Welette-Iyesus, who was of mixed Ethiopian-German origin, the daughter of the German painter Eduard Zander (1813–1868) and court-lady Isette-Werq in Gondar, daughter of an Ethiopian general named Meqado (active before the mid-19th century). Ustinov and Magdalena Hall had four children. Among them were their eldest son Jona von Ustinov (father of British-Russian actor Peter Ustinov), Tabitha von Ustinow, and Peter (Petja) von Ustinow (1895–1917, killed in action in Hollebeke).
