Great Duchess Maria Fyodorovna The re-burial in St. Petersburg of Maria Fyodorovna, mother of Nicholas II, the last Russian tsar, will take place on Sept. 26, the anniversary of the Danish princess' arrival in Russia in 1866, Interfax quoted the Danish Embassy as saying Tuesday.

The wife of Alexander III, Princess Dagmar, as she was known in Denmark, outlived her husband and son and was buried in Copenhagen in 1928. She expressed her desire to be buried in St. Petersburg in her will.

Interfax said Patriarch Alexy II, head of the Russian Orthodox Church, will take part in the ceremony. The re-burial has been the subject of protracted negotiations between Denmark and Russia.
