Ok, I have done little research and came up with this:
The sole Dutch participant of the 1956 Olympic Games was Alexei Pantchoulidzew
, a horse rider in the individual dressage event.
He was a house-mate (co-habitor) of Princess Armgard von Sierstorpff-Cramm
, who is the mother of the late Prince Bernhard.
Prince Bernhard amiably called him "Tschuli".
Pantchoulidzew was a Colonel in the Russian Empirical Army before the revolution of 1917, and is rumored to be Berhards biological father.
He may also have fathered Berhard´s brother Aschwin.
In 1956, Pantchoulidzew took on the Dutch nationality in order to participate in the Rome Olympic Games for Holland. Due to quarantine restrictions,
all horse-riding events were held in Stockholm, Sweden.
He was the only member of the Dutch team as Holland was protesting the Russian role in the Hungarian Revolution.
