Prince Felix Yusupov. This classy dude was rich as hell, and really, really, really ridiculously good looking. At times, he was a cross dresser and liked to hang out in bars. But most of the time, he was a gentleman. He was also the leader of the group who killed Grigori Rasputin, the holy man who was influencing the Czarina. Some say that he even was in some kind of relationship with Rasputin at one point, which is kind of interesting.

Grand Duchess Tatiana.  This is a very pretty picture of Tatiana.  Judging from her attire it may have been taken after her family was imprisoned following her father's abdication. Looks like my mother
