Eleonora Borisovna Kantemir is the direct descendant of Prince Dmitri Kantemir, Prince of Moldavia, Prince of the Russian Empire, Prince of the Holy Roman Empire, and Imperial Chancellor to Peter the Great.
Her family’s refugee status in the United States compelled her father to stimulate multi-culture awareness, particularly of his time in Russia. Along the way, she became aware of her heritage and the hunt for her father by the Soviets. In the process she found her older sister whom she had never met.
After growing up in Connecticut, and working as a flight attendant out of Iceland and New York, Eleonora eventually settled in Los Angeles, where she began the arduous endeavor of researching her family’s past. In time, she visited their former estate, “Tsaritsyno Selo,” in Moscow, and found her long lost sister in Azerbaijan, and was informed as to why the Kantemirs had been the target of intelligence operatives.
