Prince Oleg Konstantinovich of Russia (князь Олег Константинович). Died during the World War I when he was just 21. He was well-educated, wrote poetry and prose. His favourite writer was Alexander Pushkin.

As he was dying, he said, “I am so happy. It will encourage the troops to know that the Imperial House is not afraid to shed its blood.”
