The heir of the Russian throne, Gueorgui Romanov, descendant of the last Zar, Nicolás II, will marry on October 1 at the Cathedral of San Isaak in St. Petersburg.
As reported today the Cathedral Office of the Cathedral, Gueorgui, the Unique Son of María Romanova, Head of the Russian Imperial House, will contract nuptials with the Italian citizen Rebecca Bettarini.
The temple, converted to today in one of the most visited museums of the former zarist capital, welcomes religious trades and weddings. The only requirement for foreigners is that they profess Orthodox faith, which Bettarini became July 2020 with the name of Victoria Romanova and received an icon from the Varsusofi Metropolite.
Gueorgui, 40, is a descendant of Nicolás II by mother and son of Francisco William of Prussia, belonging to the Hohenzollern dynasty. Known as the Great Duke of Russia, he was born in Madrid, as well as his mother, who maintains a close relationship with the Spanish monarchy.
At the time, María Romanova pointed to EFE that she and her son consider "that the monarchical idea has a future," he advocated the recognition of the Romanov dynasty as a historical institution in Russia, but denied ambitions of power. Coinciding with the centenary of the abdication of Nicolás II in March 2017, he assured that Russian president, Vladimir Putin, is not against the monarchy, but both agree that neither now nor "in the near future" will be given Conditions for your restoration.
Russia, which was governed by the Romanov for more than 300 years (1613-1917), stopped being a monarchy when Nicolás II abdicated on March 2, 1917 after the February Revolution. The Tsar, his wife and the five children of him were shot in July 1918 after the arrival to the power of the Bolsheviks in the October Revolution, crime that a majority of Russians considers "monstrous".Date Of Update: 05 September 2021, 12:08
