A descendant of the Romanov dynasty that ruled the Russian Empire until its downfall during the Bolshevik Revolution got married in the former imperial capital, St. Petersburg, today, on Friday, RT reports.
As stated, the country’s second city is expecting to host the wedding of Grand Duke Georgiy Mikhailovich Romanov and his Italian fiancée, Rebecca Bettarini. Last year, Bettarini took the name Victoria Romanovna and converted to the Russian Orthodox Church ahead of the marriage.
As was noted, the wedding has happened right over a century since the violent downfall of Tsar Nicholas II and his family, putting an end to the 300-year-old Romanov dynasty and the Russian royals’ reign over the country.
It is specified that the wedding in St. Petersburg will be attended by members of royal families from 20 countries, including the last tsar of Bulgaria Simeon II and the last king of Egypt and Sudan Ahmed Fuad II. It is said that the guests of the event will be hosted at a banquet being catered for by one of the country’s most famous restaurant magnates, Evgeny Prigozhin.
