English family Libbis connected to prussia 1823

I am searching for information on a Russian sailor called Nicolai Tulubiev, who studied seamanship in England some time between 1780 and 1799. He was on ship during the Napoleonic Wars.
In 1799 he married Georgiana Libbis, of Great Yarmouth in England.
In 1823, the Empress of Russia sent a personal letter of condolence to John Libbis, Georgiana's father when it seems that Georgiana, Nicolai and their son Victor were all deceased.
That Empress was a Prussian princess.
I can only think that the amazingly unlikely letter from an Empress in Russia to a ships' chandler in England sprang from a family connection in Prussia.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Mary
