These are great!  Thanks for posting.

Anna looks quite young in the second portrait.  I wonder if it was painted when she was still Duchess of Courland and before she became Empress.

I also think the fourth portrait of Empress Elizabeth is actually Catherine the Great but I may well be wrong!

Att.  Grand Duchess Aminta:    He was an interesting and complex Emperor, who lived in interesting and tumultuous times.  I have visited his tomb in Saint Petersburg at the Fortress of SS. Peter and Paul, and silently wondered just "who" (if anybody!) was within.  I think that you will enjoy reading and learning more about him!  Best regards,  AP.

Yes!! I love the mystery behind him. I am reading "War and Peace" and it is quite interesting how it describes how people admired and loved him.

I suppose the grave could be opened to see if there is a body and if there is for DNA. If there was not that would be very interesting indeed. Life of a monk or the Russian Crown - hard decision if you are religious.

I've heard and read that the  grave/tomb of Alex. I was opened sometime ago because of rumors that he had not died in 1825 and a lot more when it was discovered his body was missing.  When I find the source,  I'll post.

You can just imagine  most of the speculations that have risen from an empty grave.

Why don't we do a portrait- info thread for all three of Peter the Great's surviving children? Anna Petrovna whose son Peter III eventually came to the throne, Empress Elizabeth and their half brother Tsarvitch Alexei. In particular, I started this thread because I saw a portrait long ago in a book about Peter the Great( book I no longer have access to) of a young Anna Petrovna, dressed in European style as a young woman with black hair in curls and maybe a gold dress- early to mid 1700s style. I'm sure it is here somewhere on the forum, maybe I've seen it, but I don't where to find it. If anyone knows the portrait I speak of, please post. Any other portraits welcome.

I'm sure that you already know this beautiful portrait of Tsar Peter the Great and his son Tsarevich Alexei Petrovich.



Their turbulent relationship ended in tragedy.  :(

Unfortunately I don't know where I can find the portrait of Peter the Great with Anna Petrovna.

The portrait of Anna P shows her by herself, not with Peter.

Yes you are right, I misunderstood a part of your post, however do you remember the title of the book?
