This Harax Palace,once owned by GD Georgy Michailovich,where the wedding was held,was very near famous Dulber or Djulber Palace which was built by Grand Duke Peter Nicholaievich...

It was before the Revolution ? The Romanovs were stuck there and saved by the British.

The wedding was on 10th of April in 1917 which was just less than a month after Nicholas II abdicated(on 15th of March same year),so I guess that the wedding was planed and as they were in Crimea maybe they were still unaware of how big the consequences will be...They were rescued only two years later in 1919!

During all that time Grand Duke Peter and his family lived in Djulber palace and some time after all members of Imperial family were relocated to Djulber until their departure from Russia on "Marlborough" and "Lord Nelson"...

Thanks for the info. I guess this wedding did not make the social rounds because it was in the war. Always thought this branch of the family was underwritten in books, while the others were overwritten. Love to see more about this family (other than Nicholasha that is).

Could someone please explain why Grand Duchess Olga Alexanderovna was not married in the Imperial Regalia of cherry size diamond earrings, ermine cloak and diamond clasp, wedding crown etc??

Presumably Roman and Marina missed Nadejda's wedding because they were away at the war (Roman as a junior officer of Engineers and Marina nursing).

Maybe because Olga was not marrying a foreign prince. Had Olga Nichoievna agreed to marry Karol of Romania. She would have been married in that whole regalia.

Eric,it was a question about Olga Alexandrovna who was 11 years older than Carol of Romania...

Olga Nicholievna, daughter of Tsar Nicholas II and not Olga Alexandrovna, who was his sister. They were supposed to be engaged on the Tsar's trip to Romania. Both mothers (Alicky & Missy) were not up for it.

@Eric

it's either Nikolaevna or Nicholaevna not Nicholievna. besides why bring her into discussion? the question was about Olga Alexandrovna.

The first time, she was. There was an account from someone who attended that ceremony - it's too bad I can't remember who. They described her dress and cloak, jewels, etc, and IIRC, were not very charitable about the physical appearance of either the bride or the groom. : P

The second time, it was during the First World War and was a very quiet wedding. Wartime and regalia don't mix, not to mention the fact that she was marrying a "commoner".
