Felix Yussupov: 'I was born on March 24, 1887, in our house on the Moika Canal, at St. Petersburg. The evening before, my mother went to a ball at the Winter Palace and danced the whole night through. Our friends thought this was a sign that I would be gay, and a good dancer. They were right as to the gaiety, but wrong about the dancing.'

Grigory Rasputin. Magic man for the Royal family in Russia in the late 1800's. His body was found in the freezing Neva River poisoned with enough cyanide to take him out 5 times over again, shot 4 times including that one in his forehead, and bludgeoned. Cause of death? Drowning.

c.1914 Rasputin in Bed

Rasputin. Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Aleksandra (the emperor and empress of Russia) had tried for years to give birth to an heir. Finally, in 1904, Aleksandra gave birth to a baby boy, Aleksei Nikolayevich. Unfortunately, the boy was afflicted with "the Royal disease," hemophilia. The royal couple became frantic to find a cure for their son. Again, mystics, holy men and healers were brought in. In 1908, Rasputin was called upon.

The Oddment Emporium

Grigory Rasputin ~ Siberian peasant and Russian mystic Grigory Rasputin was assassinated on December 17, 1916 in the private room of Prince Felix Yusupov. Rasputin was known throughout Russia as a mystic healer, prophet, and visionary. However, many believed him to be a religious charlatan who possessed powers over Emperor Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra, and their only son Alexei. He has been credited with the eventual fall of the Romanov dynasty in Russia. #StPetersburg #Grigory_Rasputin
