 The Succession Question
Furthermore, criticism has been often levelled whether justly or not at the Grand Duke Kirill with regard to his breaking the oath of allegiance to the Emperor Nicholas II in 1917 and his assumption of the imperial title in 1924 which was against the express wishes of the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna.
In order to avoid the Austrian example where all members of the Imperial House were designated Archdukes, in Russia only sons and daughters or grandsons and granddaughters (in the male line) of a reigning Emperor were permitted to the rank of Grand Duke or Grand Duchess and the qualification of Imperial Highness.
In accordance with the laws of succession to the Imperial House of Russia the undisputed head of the family is His Highness Prince Nicholas Romanovich, son of the late Prince Roman Petrovich and Grandson of the Grand Duke Peter Nikolaievich.

On the other side of the fence stands Grand Duke Nikolai Romanovich Romanov, 76, who, as a republican, does not believe in the restoration of the monarchy in Russia - even though he would be a b contender for the throne were that to happen.

As his only child, Maria’s position would seem clear; unfortunately the matter is complicated by the question of whether her father’s marriage to Princess Leonida Bagration-Moukhransky was in fact an equal marriage.
It should be noted that his mother seems to regard her role as being that of guardian of her son’s rights rather than the claimant herself; therefore, if the Russian people ever desire a Romanov restoration, it would probably be to Georg (Emperor Georgiy I) that they would turn.
