For context, George's grandmother, Leonida Bagration of Mukhrani, was first married to Sumner Moore Kirby, who was a son of Fred Morgan Kirby, business partner of one of the F. W. Woolworth Company heirs. They had a daughter, who is the half-sister of GD Maria (George's mother), from Leonida's second marriage to Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich.
