Russian Royalty. He was the youngest brother of the last Tsar Nicholas II. Married Nathalie Sheremetevsky. Though the marriage was never officially recognized (they married in Vienna in 1912) by the Romanov family. The Tsar eventually gave her the title of "Countess of Brassovo" (the 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 (later overthrown by Lenin in November 1917) could not guarentee his safety. Eventually arrested by the Bolsheviks. Michael was exiled to Perm in Siberia and was shot to death on the night of June 12, 1918 and buried in an unmarked grave in a wooded area. The grave sight remains a mystery to this day though there have been efforts to find it. Nathalie (Natasha) escaped Russia to Paris where she died on January 23, 1952 of cancer. She is buried in the Passy Cemetery in Paris. Natasha and Michael had a son George who was killed on his 21st birthday in 1931 in a car crash. Natasha and George are buried side by side in Passy. George would have been the nephew to the Tsar.
