Grand Duke Michael Nikolaevich of Russia ( 13 October 1832 – 18 December 1909) was the fourth son and seventh child of Tsar Nicholas I of Russia and Charlotte of Prussia. He was the first owner of the New Michael Palace on the Palace Quay in Saint Petersburg.

Marriage and issue

On 16 August 1857 he married Princess Cecily of Baden (1839–1891, daughter of Leopold, Grand Duke of Baden and Sophie of Sweden). Cecily adopted the name Olga Fedorovna, and had the following children with him

  1. Grand Duke Nicholas Mikhailovich of Russia (1859–1919)
  2. Grand Duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna of Russia (1860–1922)
  3. Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovich of Russia (1861–1929)
  4. Grand Duke George Mikhailovich of Russia (1863–1919)
  5. Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich (Sandro) (1866–1933)
  6. Grand Duke Sergei Mikhailovich of Russia (1869–1918)
  7. Grand Duke Alexei Mikhailovich of Russia (1875–1895)

He served for a long time (1862–1882) as the Governor General of Caucasia, being seated in Tbilisi, the town which most of his children remembered as the home of their childhood. In the course of his life, four members of his family ruled as Emperors of Russia: his father, Nicholas I; his brother, Alexander II; his nephew, Alexander III; and his grand-nephew, Nicholas II. He served all of them loyally. He died in Cannes, France, on 18 December 1909.
