Ivan Mikhailovich Obolensky
He was a member of a Rurikid princely family, whose ancestors once ruled one of the Upper Principalities. His mother was the Romanian-born princess Mărioara Sturdza, daughter of Alexandru Sturdza. His father was Prince Mikhail Aleksandrovich Obolensky (1821–1886).
His term of office saw revolutionary turmoil in both Russia and the Grand Duchy of Finland. The Russian revolution of 1905 resulted in a general strike in Finland and the replacement of the feudal Diet of Finland with the modern Parliament of Finland.
He was murdered by revolutionaries in St. Petersburg.
