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.

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.
