Martyrdom, Sainthood. Reburial and Commemoration of IF
« on: May 16, 2005, 09:53:15 AM »
Does anyone please have any the full list of royalties & other dignitaries who attended the burial of the IF in 1998. Also - since I cannot find any - does anyone have any links to web sites or could anyone please post details of the way in which the service was carried out & any more pictures please?

I'm sorry I don't, but I just have to say that it's so sad to see their coffins there. :'(

Only prince Michael, Duke of Kent attended the re-burial of the IF.

Thanks Selina, I did look but maybe I missed it!  :)

Teddy, is that right? Out of all the Houses (or remnants of Houses!) of Europe, Prince Michael was the only royalty present at so momentous an event!?

I didn't realize that Prince Michael was the only one to attend. That's amazing. I wonder why? Any ideas?
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in a pretty and well preserved body; but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow ---- What a ride!!!"

Yes bluetoria, 4 what I know is that prince Michael the only was to attend of all the Royal Houses.

Maybe there was a sort of protocol. Its custom that if you get an invitation of the host country you as King/Queen or one of the childeren go, to a burial/funeral, wedding, etc.

I think that Poetin didn't send any invitations to the Kingdoms of the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, etch etc.

Thanks, Teddy. Do you know of any reason why Yeltsin didn't extend the invitations? Did he see it a primarily an internal Russian matter? Or were his views more political.
On a purely human level, it would seem that it would have been a noble gesture to invite them if only because of their family links to the IF.  :-/

The fact that there is no solid evidence that these rest belong really to the Imperial family can be an other explanation. I still think that Boris Nikolaevich made something as a PR-campagny for himself with this burial. But I can be not right.

I think I have read that only members of the Romanov family were specifically invited. [Prince Michael being connected with them]. The church is not that large and would not accomodate a large, state-type assembly.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

The Orthodox Church performed the burial rites.
