Gonfalons of Nicholas II Bought Out Abroad at $20 Million to Arrive in Yekaterinburg

The last Russian Emperors icon banners bout out in Holland will be exhibited in Yekaterinburg from the 13th of September, 2009.
      
      The personal relics that belonged to the family of Nicholas II, namely the gonfalons with the Kazan icon of the Mother of God and the icon of St. Alexander Nevski, will be returned to Russia, the press-service of the Yekaterinburg Eparchy informed.
      
      Until the year of 1917 these icons were kept in the iconostasis of the Fyodorovsky Cathedral in Tsarskoe Selo. This cathedral was built on the personal money of Nicholas II and was his favourite church. He called it my cozy church - the message reports.
