Russian Royalty. Twice divorced, she fell in love with and later married Grand Duke Michael (Romanov) of Russia, youngest brother of the last Tsar Nicholas II. They were married in Vienna in 1912. Though the marriage was never officially recognized by the Romanov family, the Tsar eventually gave her the title of "Countess of Brassovo", a name coming from one of Michael's estates in Russia. When Nicholas abdicated in March 1917, he abdicated in favor of his brother Michael who was officially Tsar for 24 hours. He later rejected the throne when the newly formed provisional government could not guarantee his safety; by November, the provisional government was overthrown for Lenin forces. Eventually arrested by the Bolsheviks, her husband was exiled to Perm in Siberia, shot to death on the night of June 12, 1918, and buried in an unmarked grave in a wooded area. His grave site remains a mystery though there have been efforts to find it. She and their son escaped from Russia to Paris, France; the couple's only child, George, was killed on his 21st birthday in 1931 in a car crash. Cause of her death was cancer.
