400th anniversary of Romanov House
2013 (MMXIII) is the year of the 400th anniversary of the founding of the House of Romanov, Russia’s last royal dynasty. At the date of this anniversary, a number of events were organized on the occasion in Russia and Ukraine marking a grand jubilee in their history. The celebration marks the accession of Mikhail Fyodorovich Romanov (Russian: Михаи́л Фёдорович Рома́нов) to the Russian throne on 11 (21) June 1613 beginning a new ruling dynasty of the Romanovs. The dynasty ended with the abdication of Nicholas II in March 1917.
Among the celebrations organized around the world, the Romanov Celebration Gala takes place in Paris on October 5, 2013 in the Chateau of Chantilly. The event was held with the participation of Romanov descendants, international business and cultural elite at one of France’s most stunning historical venues with the finest second collection of paintings after the Louvre Museum. The chateau hosted three official Imperial visits of the Russian Emperors.
On the occasion France, which has a long tradition and respect in the Russian history and culture welcomed the guests coming from the fields of business, media, diplomacy, art and sports from Europe, Ukraine and Russia to spend the exclusive weekend in Paris and live the get-together time paying a tribute to the Romanov and sharing the emotions of the celebration with luxury leading names and VIP celebrities. Deriving from the Russian imperial traditions of splendid balls, masquerades and other entertainment for aristocrats, the event supported images of Russia and Ukraine on the international arena as the countries which take care of their heritage and therefore, future of their nations.
The founders and organizers of the Romanov Celebration Gala were Natalia Mitrofanova and Michel Soyer, finest events artisans.
