Comment:

Grand Duke Piotr Fiodorovich (1728–1762), later Emperor Piotr III. Dethroned as a result of the coup on 28 June 1762, he was forced to abdicate and was placed in the palace at Ropsha, where on 7 July he was assassinated under unclear circumstances. As judged by the age of the depicted person, the portrait can date back to the mid-18th century. Author’s comment: Natalia Bakhareva
