The funeral service of the late estate agent Count Jerzy (George) Krasicki v. Siecin will be held next week at St Peter's Eastern Hill Church, East Melbourne.

He was the husband of Primrose Dunlop, aka Countess Krasicki v Siecin.

He was more casually known around Melbourne as George Kirk, a former real estate agent.

George Kirk discovered that he was Count Krasicki v Siecin just before they walked down the aisle in 1993.

“It's a mouthful, we just use 'Krasicki' or KVS,” she once said.

They appear in the Victorian State Library digital collection in the Rennie Ellis collection.

Melbourne gossip columnist Lawrence Money once wrote "he was the world's most titled real estate agent."

"It was a novel courtship. No violins, no French champagne: the sixty-something, lured young Pltty-Pat, 39, to the altar with Lanes Scrolls biscuits," Money wrote shortly after the wedding some 25 years ago.

Their daughter Sofia Krasicki, 23, and grand-daughter of Lady (Primrose) Potter, has been studying a Bachelor of Design at the Whitehouse Institute of Design in London.

It was in 1990 when Primrose "Pitty Pat" Dunlop became the subject of international interest when her planned Venice wedding to Lorenzo Montesini, a Qantas flight attendant, was called off with only four days to go.

Montesini had decided he preferred the company of the best man, Robert Straub, Wikipedia advises.

Montesini also refers to himself as Prince Giustiniani, Count of the Phanaar, Knight of St Sophia and Baron Alexandroff.
