When Empress Anna Ivanovna ascended to the Russian throne, she was compelled to sign nine articles (conditions) limiting her power. She was not to marry. She was not to appoint a successor to the throne.

Two years after his coronation, Tsar Alexis I asked his courtiers to organize a bride-show so he could choose for himself a tsarina. He chose Euphemia Vsevolozhskaya as his bride. The wedding was called off when Euphemia fainted after the too tight crown was placed on her head. She and her family were sent into exile.

The Empress Elizabeth of Russia was renowned for the fact that she never wore the same ball gown twice. She would change attire as many as six times a day.

I just want the pleasure of seeing "Grand Duchess" Maria at the Generalissimo's wedding.  I suspect it would be epic. She'd put on her best mumu and her craziest face.

But for the fantasy to continue, he has to maintain the facade and marry "equally." If he doesn't, and remains heir, her whole life's effort in shitting on the rest of the family is wasted.

He won't marry until Mama Craycray is dead.

Such a shame.  I know there are some eligible "equal" ladies out there.  Can't he find one of them and have the sham marriage his mummy dearest has always wanted for him?  Please? We need a wedding for this special boy.  It would be such a delight for me.  Do it for me, Generalissimo.  I know there are some single Habsburg ladies or other German "royals" out there.  Or even better, please marry Olympia of Greece.  I would simply die of dishing happiness.

Earlier today in St. Petersburg, Rebecca Virginia Bettarini was received into the Russian Orthodox church. [...] She took the name Victoria Romanovna.  Victoria her patron Victoria of Rome. Romanovna was used in the 1600s as an imperial patronymic, according to Miss Bettarini, and it is closer to Roberto, which is her father's name.

Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna was unable to travel to Russia for the ceremony due to COVID-19.

Has Frau Hohenzollern finally given up? It's been apparent for ages no "princess" that meets the criteria was going to marry Georgie. Almost all of them are married off to other cousins now.

I saw speculation on twitter that she’s been negotiating with the church that the Pauline law (?) will be dropped so the line can continue. I must admit it would make for a potentially very interesting royal-ish wedding..

Ahhh, was waiting to see the reactions on RD.

This deals a blow to her argument about equal marriages!

It's really odd because Maria is the product of an "unequal" marriage. Vladimir and Maria tied themselves into knots trying to justify how the marriage between Vladimir and Leonida was an equal marriage, but it wasn't.

It's not like it matters anymore. All of this stopped mattering back in March 1917 when the Romanovs were stripped of their titles.

I'm more interested at how the Romanov Family Association responds when Georgie finally gets married. Will they respond that this happy event in the Prussian royal family doesn't concern them? Who knows! I wonder if there are any Romanovs left that are on good terms with Georgie and Maria.
