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.
