The Coronation of the Empress Elizabeth Petrovna took place at Moscow on 6th May , 1742. Her Coronation dress and mantle are displayed at the Catherine Palace at Tsarskoye Selo., Pushkin , Russia
Empress Elizabeth Petrovna ruled the Russian Empire for twenty years (1741-1762). Her rule of the country was mild and allowed Russia to prosper in the arts and education. Her domestic policies increased the presence of the Russian nobility in the government. She defeated the strongest warrior of Europe at the time, the Prussian King Frederick II, but died before her victory could be secured.
Elizabeth (1709–1761), the second-oldest daughter of Peter the Great and Catherine I of Russia, born during the period of Peter’s military victories. In autumn 1741, she overthrew Tsar Ivan VI of Russia, arrested and exiled the Brunswick-Lüneburg family, and usurped the throne. Her reign was one of the calmest, with no natural disasters or social riots. Even the European Seven Years’ War, which started in 1756, lasted only four years for Russia, and was victorious for the Russian army. Not one person was executed on Elizabeth’s orders during her reign. She continued Peter the Great's policies in modernizing Russia, repealed all acts enabled after her father’s death, enhanced the importance of the Senate, established first Russian loan banks for the merchant class, etc. . Extraordinarily beautiful and fashion-conscious, Elizabeth adored fineries, balls, masquerades, concerts and other entertainments. Her life of endless enjoyment required luxurious scenery. The brilliant Italian architect Bartolomeo Francesco Rastrelli built for the Empress about twenty grandiose baroque palaces.
The St Catherine’s Palace’s rich, festive appearance and luxuriously decorated apartments became a dazzling setting for formal receptions, dinners, balls and masquerades.
