A hundred and forty years ago, a Danish princess first stepped onto Russian soil. She adopted the Orthodoxy, under the name Maria Fyodorovna and married the future Emperor, Alexander III. Maria Fyodorovna lived in Russia for fifty three years and died in Denmark in 1928, at the age of 81. On September 26, her remains are being reburied in St. Petersburg.
