The wedding of Prince William of Orange and Grand Duchess Anna Pavlovna

21 February, Saturday

On February 21, 1816 the 23-year-old Prince William of Orange married the 21-year-old Grand Duchess Anna Pavlovna

The wedding of William of Orange, the eldest son of the Dutch monarch William I, and Anna Pavlovna, the youngest daughter of the Russian Emperor Paul I, was quite simple comparing to common royal traditions. Anna was allowed to stay orthodox. The new father-in-law gave her a house in Zaandam, where her great-great-grandfather once lived.
