He was born in the Kremlin, in the family of the most powerful dictator of the 20th century.

He was a darling of fate and a favorite of women.

At the age of 26 he became a lieutenant-general, in 34 years - a prisoner without a name and surname.

He did not live just a few days before his 42nd birthday; all forgotten, he died in Kazan, and the secret of his death is still unsolved.
