General Sergei
St. Petersburg, Russia
London, England


Sergei Rodzianko was the fifth of the six children – five boys and one girl – of General Pavel Vladimirovich Rodzianko and his second wife, Princess Maria Pavlovna Rodzianko (née Golitsyn). Circa the summer of 1917, Sergei Rodzianko married Countess Anastasia Vassilievna Gudovich, daughter of Count Vasilij Vasilijevich Gudovich and Countess Nadezhda Pertrovna Gudovich (née Gargarina).

It is possible that, due to the dangerous political situation in Russia, the wedding of Sergei Rodzianko and Countess Anastasia Gudovich took place abroad. All six of the Rodzianko siblings and their mother left Russia at some point or other and were unable or unwilling to return following the October Revolution of 1917, which signalled the end of Tsarist Russia. (The family’s huge estate was confiscated by the communists.) Sergei and Anastasia Rodzianko had two children together, sons Piotr (b. 1918) and Alexander (b. 1922).

When the Register of England and Wales was drawn up in 1939, Sergei Rodzianko was living in the village of Brixworth in the county of Northamptonshire in the East Midlands of England. The same register lists his profession as artist. According to a short piece published in The Times of London on 13 September 1966: “Captain Sergei Rodzianko, now a portrait painter in London, was well known in international show-jumping before the war. A former Russian cavalry officer, trained at the Italian Cavalry School [in Rome], his particular skill is taking horses he has trained round the jumping ring without a bridle.”

On his death in London in June 1979, at the age of 84, Sergei Rodzianko left the sum of £1,849 in his will.
