MOSCOW, April 30. /TASS/. The remains of Grand Duke Nicholas Romanov and his wife Anastasia have been reinterred on Thursday in the Chapel of the Transfiguration of Our Lord in the Bratsk military cemetery in Moscow.
Head of the Russian Historical Society, speaker of the lower house of the Russian parliament, the State Duma, Sergey Naryshkin who attended the ceremony said that "the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess returned to their homeland, their names are acquiring a worthy place in the memory of Russians." "During World War One, the name of the Grand Duke became symbolic for Russian soldiers and our allies, for the Russian society and all those who linked their liberation to Russian victories," Naryshkin said. His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia noted that the dreams of "Russia’s prominent sons and daughters who passed away outside their Homeland and dreamed of being buried in their native soil" were coming true today.
Taking part in the ceremony were representatives of the federal and municipal authorities and the public and descendants of the Romanov family. Grand Duke Nicholas Jr (1856-1929) was a grandson of Emperor Nicholas I and cousin of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II. At the beginning of World War I, he served as Commander of the Russian Army and Navy until he was succeeded by Nicholas II.
Having left Russia in 1919, the Grand Duke passed away ten years later in France and was buried in the Church of St.Michael the Archangel in Cannes.
