Grand Duke Michael shows signs of insanity

September 15, 1917

Since the transfer of former Emperor Nicholas II to Tobolsk, his brother, former Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovitch, has been "showing signs of mental derangement and bombarding the Government with requests for various privileges," reports the New York Times.

The Grand Duke has asked "for permission to go abroad to take a care."  He has also made demands for a trial of two officers "on whose evidence he accused of complicity" in a monarchist conspiracy.
