  Konstantin Konstantinovich (pen-name – K.R.), a Grand Duke, Emperor Nicolas's the First grandson, Nicolas's the Second cousin once removed, produced a significant contribution to Russian history and culture at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. A military man, a science leader, a poet – these are the aspects of a Romanov Regnant House representative's extraordinary individuality.

Since childhood the Grand Duke had been traditionally prepared for military service. At first he served in the navy, later he commanded a company in the Izmaylovsky regiment of the Life Guards, where he organized a literary circle “Izmaylovskie dosugi”, with poems recited and literary problems discussed at its meetings. In 1891 Konstantin Konstantinovich became the Preobrazhensky regiment of the Life Guards commander; in 1894 – a major-general already, and since 1907 – an infantery general.
