Just six days after his brother Grichka, his twin brother Igor died at the age of 72 in the presence of his family. His agent announced this to AFP on Monday. The two achieved fame as “Botox twins”. But they also made a name for themselves with one or the other scandal. A look at her eventful life.

Your noble origin

Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff were two real princes with Russian roots. Her father Yuri was a descendant of a royal bloodline. Her mother, Maria, was the daughter of Countess Bertha Kolowrat-Krakwská, who belonged to the Bohemian noble family Kolowrat and was married to a member of the Austrian dynasty Colloredo-Mannsfeld.

Her pregnancy with the black tenor Roland Hayes was not welcomed at the court, which is why the Countess Bertha and her daughter Maria moved to the Château de Saint-Lary in 1927, where Igor and Grichka grew up. The twins spoke German and, according to their own statements, learned French, Russian and English through contact with housekeepers and workers.

Your education

In Paris, the twin brothers studied applied mathematics. In 1993 they started their PhD at the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon. Grichka received his doctorate in mathematics in 1999, Igor received his doctorate in theoretical physics in 2002. Both works were given the worst rating – “honorable”.

Your career

The brothers have been in front of the camera since 1979. They presented science fitction shows and popular science programs. The twins said of themselves that they had a supernatural gift for the futuristic: “We have a natural relationship with everything that deals with the things that are still to come.” They got quota successes with “Temps X”. They were also there for the French offshoot of “The Masked Singer” – as candidates.

The scandals

The so-called Bodganoff scandal in 2001 drew international circles. The two had published articles on topics from the field of theoretical physics in specialist journals. In 2002, however, the rumor spread that the Bogdanoff brothers' publications were nothing but a joke. The story made the rounds and, within a few days, sparked heated discussions about the state of theoretical physics. Igor and Grichka always denied the allegations. It later turned out that the papers had no scientific value.

In a French television interview, the twins claimed to have helped Satoshi Nakamoto – the inventor of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin – with the development of the source code and thus with the history of Bitcoin: “As mathematicians, Igor and I were able to work on part of the source code, especially the Predictive code, contribute. ” Only a few days later they said on the show «L’Heure des Pros» that they had also worked with the Japanese scientist Soitchiro Shimoda. They didn't want to go into further details.

They also caused a stir with their appearance – because of the cosmetic changes on their face. A lot of botox and other interventions, which the two supposedly always had to be carried out at the same time and always denied.
