ALEXANDER III was Emperor (Czar) of Russia from 1881-1894. The fathers of Grand Duke Constanine Constantinovich (1858-1915) and Czar Alexander III were brothers.

She renounced her rights of succession to the Russian throne at the time of her marriage in 1911 to Prince Constantine, a descendant of the Kings of Georgia. He was killed in action in World War I in 1915. In 1921, she married Alexander Korochentsov (1877-1922). He died three months later.
