Footnotes

  • Countess Sophia Hilarionovna Vorontsova-Dashkova married Count Elim Demidov, of the famously wealthy industrial family in 1893. He served as Imperial Russia's last Ambassador to Greece and both remained at the epicentre of White Russian life after the Revolution and up until their deaths in exile in Athens. In 1923, Count Demidov was instrumental in arranging the marriage of his nephew Prince Paul of Yugoslavia to Princess Olga of Greece and Denmark.
