Julia Cantacuzene to file for divorce

October 16, 1934

Julia Cantacuzene is expected to file for divorce from her husband Prince Michel in Florida. The former Julia Dent Grant, who was born in the White House, is a granddaughter of the late President Ulysses S. Grant.

Her husband has said that he will not contest the divorce. "Divorce has been considered for quite some time. We have kept it out of the papers so far, but I realize this can be done no longer."

The couple had been married for 35 years, and had survived the vicissitudes of the Russian Revolution, and the loss of the Cantacuzene estates.

Julia Cantucuzene recently regained her American citizenship, and is now known as Mrs. Cantacuzene.

Here is a link to more information about their wedding:
