Thanks everyone for the pictures!!

Madde, your pics are fantastic as always!!

I know from another board that Dagmar went back to Denmark for her own safety after 1919 when her son (the last tsar) and his family were killed, but upon her death, why wasn't she returned to Russia as per her wishes? Why did they wait until decades later?

Have you forgotten that the Soviet Union was a communist dictatorship responsible for the murder of as many members of the Imperial Family that could be found?

She stipulated in her will that she wanted to be buried with her husband in Russia once the bolsheviks were no longer in power. ( Take that as communists) After the fall of communism the political situation in Russia had to stabilise before the discussion of the transfer of her remains could commence. Even so there were tensions between Denmark and Russia a few years ago that stalled the discussion as to Marie's reburial next to her husband.

2006 was chosen as it marked the 140th anniversary of Princess Dagmar's arrival in Russia to marry Alexander.

Half of them are Russian and the other half are Danish. The uniforms with the bluish tint is the Russian.

Apparently the Danish and the Russian military march differently, so they had to have a couple of practice sessions before the big days so it would look similar as they marched.

In Denmark, a Danish commander/colonel (whatever the rank was) walked first in front of the coffin and the men, and his Russian equivalent walked last - and when they get to Russia, it will be the other way around.

Updates on the Reburial Program events in Russia from Tuesday (tomorrow?) Sept 26 until Thursday Sept 28 2006

I'm wondering who will be officially required to assist to this event. Like government officials and family members.
Anyone has a guest list?

Russia gets empress's remains back

SAINT PETERSBURG - The remains of Maria Fyodorovna, mother of Russia's last tsar, has arrived in Russia aboard a Danish naval ship, 87 years after she fled the Bolshevik revolution, organisers said.

The coffin arrived in the Baltic port of Kronstadt to a 31-gun salute and was transferred to a Russian naval vessel, an official organiser said.

According to B.T. http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=470946/
Constantine and Anne-Marie will be present as well as Prince Michael of Kent.

Frederik is, supposedly, also bringing some earth from Marie/Dagmar's rose beds at Villa Hvidøre.

Not sure who they belong to but they both call themselves Princes and Dmitri says he's head of the family, something he definately aint.

Nicholas I and his wife Alexandra of Prussia had among 4 sons Alexander II and Nicholas. Alexander II is grandfather to Nicholas II and Xenia, while Nicholas is grandfather to Nicholas and Dimitri. Nicholas and Dimitri's mother was a princess of Montenegro; she was daughter of King Nicholas I of Montenegro.

So no - they are not descendants of Xenia.

I wonder if the Empress would have preferred to have stayed in Denmark, considering the tragic deaths of her son and his family.

She denied the fact all her remain life until her death. For Empress Maria Feodorovna, her son and daughter-in-law and grand -children were wandering somewhere in the world. She rejected the Sokolov report, that said that all of them were murdered and their corpses distroyed. So, I don't think she'll be bothered for being buried in Russia. By the way, this is the country where her husband Alexander III and her sons (and also her grandchldren) are now buried.

God Bless her. Holy Russia received her Empress today, after 87 years of her sad departing.

Vanesa.

Homecoming for a Danish Empress


And from the Unnoficial Royal pages: The Return of the Empress , this link provides more information about the Empress than most reports I've seen this week. It talks about her life after she escaped, how did she ended up in Denmark at the expense of the king and other details on her daily life in exile.
