2016-08-05. Dmitrii Romanovich Romanov Receives a Prestigious Award from the Russian Government

President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree awarding Dmtirii Romanovich Romanov the Order of Alexander Nevsky, an order of the government of the Russian Federation. The order was awarded “for his significant contributions to the efforts to promote abroad knowledge of the historical and cultural legacy of Russia, and for his work in strengthening international humanitarian connections.”

The Head of the Russian Imperial House, H.I.H. The Grand Duchess Maria of Russia, is pleased that the efforts of her relative have been so prominently acknowledged. Despite the fact that Dmitrii Romanov sometimes issues public statements that contradict the position of the Russian Imperial House and the Russian Orthodox Church, Grand Duchess Maria of Russia, while regretting such moments, nonetheless views him with familial affection and recognizes first and foremost the good that he tries to do for her countrymen in Russia.

Dmitrii Romanovich Romanov (b. 1926) is the second son of Prince-of-the-Imperial-Blood Roman Petrovich, from his morganatic marriage with Countess Praskovia Sheremeteva, and is the last representative of the line of Romanovs descended from Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich the Elder, third son of Emperor Nicholas I. He is a citizen of Denmark and heads a number of foreign civic and charitable organizations. At the present time, Dmitrii Romanovich Romanov, who has recently turned 90, is the second oldest member by age of the morganatic descendants of the House of Romanoff (second after Andrei Andreevich Romanov, b. 1923, the son of Prince-of-the-Imperial-Blood Andrei Alexandrovich), the great-grandson of Emperor Nicholas I).
