He is a Russian American artist and author and a great-nephew of Russia's last Tsar Nicholas II. Since 31th December 2016 he is a claimant to the headship of the Imperial House of Russia and President of the Romanov Family Association.

He was born in London to Prince Andrei Alexandrovich of Russia (1897-1981) and his first wife, Elisabetha Sasso-Ruffo (1886-1940). He is the eldest living male line grandson of Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich of Russia and his wife Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna of Russia, the eldest sister of the last reigning Emperor Nicholas II of Russia, thereby being the last Emperor's closest family relation from the Romanov Family. His godfather was King Edward VIII and he spent his childhood living in a guesthouse at Windsor Castle.

He was educated at the Imperial Service College and served in the Royal Navy during World War II. In 1949 he left the United Kingdom for the United States where he worked for a time as a carpenter. He became a naturalised U.S. citizen on 20 December 1954.

He currently resides in Marin County, California and in 2007 released an autobiography called 'The Boy Who Would Be Tsar', which is illustrated with his artwork. His work has been exhibited worldwide.

Housed in a modern black wooden frame mounted under conservation glass by Pure & Applied conservators of London.
