Biographical data
Name: Petrovsky, Nikolay Ivanovich  
   Also known as: N. Petrowski
Born: 23 July 1827
Died: 13 June 1885
 
Notes:
Bell's Life in London (20 Nov. 1842, p.2) mentions a Petroffsky as an opponent of Petrov in Warsaw. N.I. Petrovsky would have been only 15 years old at that time, if his birth date is correct, but that is just plausible. In 1853, Nathanson played Petrovsky in Warsaw, so presumably this is the same man.
