Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna of Russia & Prince Franz Wilhelm of Prussia: 1976

In Dinard on 4 September 1976 (civil) and at the Russian Orthodox Chapel in Madrid on 22 September 1976 (religious), Grand Duchess Maria married Prince Franz Wilhelm of Prussia, her third cousin once removed. He is a Hohenzollern great-grandson of Germany's last emperor Wilhelm II and a great-great-great-grandchild of Victoria, Queen of the United Kingdom.

The couple separated in 1982, a year after the birth of their only child, George Mikhailovich, who had been granted the title Grand Duke of Russia at birth by his grandfather Vladimir. They divorced in 19 June 1985.

Among the guests were: King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain, King Simeon II and Queen Margarita of Bulgaria, King Umberto II of Italy, King Leka of Albania, Queen Giovanna of Bulgaria (widow of King Boris III ), Queen Geraldine of Albania (widow of King Zog), and Queen Farida of Egypt (former consort of King Farouk).
