: Dimitri Romanoff, the younger son of HH Prince
: Roman of Russia and Countess Prascovia
: Cheremeteva, died 31 Dec 2016 in a hospital
: in Denmark. He was 90. He is survived by his
: widow, Feodora (née Dorrit Reventlow). He
: had no children.
: As President of the Romanoff Family
: Association he was also the head of that
: association's charitable foundation which
: raised money for several causes to benefit
: the people of Russia. The bequests were
: often medical equipment and supplies.
: Dimitri's position in the family was
: disputed. According to the generally
: acknowledged Head of the House, Grand
: Duchess Maria, he was not a member of the
: Imperial House, the same opinion she
: currently has of every other Romanoff,
: except her son. In her view, Dimitri was
: simply Mr. Dimitri Romanoff.
: Dimitri's father, Prince Roman Petrovich,
: was of the opinion in 1921 (when he married
: Prascovia) that there was no longer an
: Empire, and there was no longer an Emperor,
: so there was no one that he had ask
: permission from to marry. As a result, he
: never asked for, nor did he receive, any
: title for his wife or children. By Roman's
: thinking his children would be HH Prince
: Nicolas (d.2014) and HSH Prince Dimitri of
: The current Russian government, which
: recently awarded him the Order of Alexander
: Nevsky for his charitable work, refers to
: him as "Prince Dimitri Romanoff."
