(TheConservativeNews.org) – When most people think of royal families, almost immediately, they look to the United Kingdom. Few may consider Russia, whose monarchy ended long ago but has remaining members of its noble bloodline. A recent wedding has put Russian royalty back on the radar. 

There hasn’t been a royal wedding since the Bolsheviks executed Nicholas II in their revolution of 1917. Grand Duke George Mikhailovich Romanov is a descendant of Nicholas II, and his marriage ceremony marks the first royal wedding in Russia for over a century. 

Romanov met his wife, Rebecca Virginia Bettarini, in Brussels while working for the European Parliament. The couple tied the knot at St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg, a location they chose because it has close ties to the Romanov family. 

The couple invited about 1,500 people to the wedding, 50 being royalty from several countries in Europe such as Belgium, Spain, Naples and Bulgaria. The wedding lasted two hours, and roughly one-third of the guests attended the reception afterward at the Russian Ethnographic Museum, which Nicholas II founded. 

Romanov mentioned that he hoped the wedding would shine some light on the more beautiful side of Russia and bring attention to the history and culture of the country.
