Re: Zinaida Yusopova

Not all European monarchies had rules demanding equal brides. It was more done so because of expectation rather than legal requirement.
So i can see a scenario where a younger son would have been encouraged to marry a wealthy and good-looking Zinaida Yusopova.
But sovereign houses?
For what it is worth, Wikipedia referes to an attempt to pair her with a Battenberg prince, (one of the sons of Prince Alexander of Hesse).
