The remains of Empress Maria Fyodorovna will be buried in St. Peter and Paul's Cathedral in St. Petersburg on September 26, 2006, in keeping with an ordinance issued by President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin press service reported on Friday.

The ordinance also approved a list of members of the working group for organizing the transfer of her remains from Denmark.

Culture and Mass Media Minister Alexander Sokolov was appointed head of the group, and Russia's State Heraldry Master Georgy Vilinbakhov the secretary. The 14-member group includes governor of St. Petersburg Valentina Matviyenko, representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church, the presidential administration, the media, Foreign, Defense and Finance Ministries.

Empress Maria Fyodorovna was born Princess Dagmar of Denmark. She married Tsar Alexander III and had six children with him, including the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II.

She lived 52 years in Russia and left after the revolution. She died in Denmark in 1928 and was buried in Roskilde Cathedral, the burial place of Danish kings and queens.
