Felix Yusupov Biography
(Assassin of Grigori Rasputin)
Birthday: March 23, 1887 (Aries)
Born In: Saint Petersburg, Russia
Felix Yusupov was a Russian aristocrat, prince, and count from the Yusupov family. He is famous for arranging the murder of Grigori Rasputin, the close advisor of the Tsar, in 1916, and for his marriage to the niece of Tsar Nicholas II. He was a truly privileged child who grew up in great luxury but was not at all interested in studying or accomplishing anything in life. He only took an interest in social life and was the subject of many scandals. Felix led a flamboyant life and was thought to have been bisexual. However, Felix, along with Grand Duke Dimitri Pavlovich and Vladimir Purishkevich, planned the murder of Rasputin to end his influence on the Tsar’s family. Rasputin was considered as a treat to the empire. Some writers suggest the involvement of the British secret intelligence service, too.
