Dolgorukya-1 and Yourievska-1 appear to represent the same person because: Hello, Tim. I think you will find the work I have done solves a mystery surrounding the second wife of Tsar Alexander II. His second wife, whom you've listed as Catherine Yourievska, was originally his mistress, Catherine (Ekaterina) Dolgorukya. The reason I didn't spot your own profile at first was the last name. Shall we merge the two? It would add some detail and several of her descendants to your tree. She's from an ancient Russian family (Dolgorukovs) that stretch way back. See her Wikipedia page under the title"Catherine Dolgorukov." Please feel free to edit, add or subtract from the bio material I've written, as you wish. I've already added one photo of her -- what a beautiful woman!
