Mémoires Prince Félix Youssoupoff

Mémoires Prince Félix Youssoupoff
Grandeur and decadence. This we could summarize in a somewhat concise and limited way the life of Prince Félix Félixovitch Youssoupoff (1887-1967), famous throughout the world for being the murderer of Rasputin. Félix Félixovitch Youssoupoff was born into one of the most prestigious families of the high Russian nobility, made even closer by his marriage to the Grand Duchess Irina Alexandrovna, niece of Nicholas II. These memoirs depict a life of incredible and authentic princely splendour experienced in pre-revolutionary Russia. Before he embodied in exile one of the most emblematic figures of Belarusian emigration. Also given is his account of the lifestyle of a great Russian gentleman before 1917, while the description of the peripatetic life after the revolution demonstrates in an almost unconscious way the power of soul and spirit. Love for life, together with his wife they form an indestructible couple that no matter how difficult the circumstances, will be able to separate. Large paperback, in French, 404 pages, 26 b/w photos.
