Princess Tatiana weds her prince

September 6, 1911

Princess Tatiana Constantinova, daughter of Grand Duke Constantine Constantovitch of Russia, was married today at St. Petersburg to Prince Constantine Bagration-Mukhransky, "a cornet in the Horse Guards," reports the New York Times.

Emperor Nicholas II gave his blessing to the couple.   

In the Russian Parliament, the Duma, there is a bill to appropriate $500,000 for Prince Constantine's benefit.  His ancestors left "unliquidated claims against the Russian Treasury for surrendering the throne of a minor Caucasian principality."
