Who is Boris de Rachewiltz?

Prince Boris de Rachewiltz was an Italian-Russian Egyptologist and writer on Africa and the ancient world. He studied Egyptology at the Pontifical Biblical Institute.

He is connected by marriage to Ezra Pound, having married in 1946 Pound's daughter Mary with Olga Rudge. Pound retreated to a property at Brunnenburg in the Italian Tyrol, in the de Rachewiltz family from 1927, and owned by Boris and Mary, after his 1958 release from hospital. He wrote some later parts of The Cantos there.

Mary has translated English poetry into Italian: her father's, but also Robinson Jeffers and E. E. Cummings, Ronald Duncan and Denise Levertov.

Their children, Sigifredo Walter and Patrizia, are also both writers, Siegfried writing on the Tyrol.
