Russian Empire, Elizabeth Petrovna, 6 December 1741 - 5 January 1762

She encouraged foundation of the University of Moscow and the Imperial Academy of Arts. She modernized Russia's roads and financed grandiose projects - the Winter Palace and the Smolny Cathedral in Saint Petersburg are among the chief monuments of her reign. Elizabeth led the Russian Empire during the War of Austrian Succession (1740–48) and the Seven Years' War (1756–63).

Russian Empire, Anna Ioannovna, 26 February 1730 - 28 October 1740
NEW Anna Ioannovna and sometimes anglicized as Anne ruled as Empress of Russia from 1730 to 1740. Much of her administration was defined or heavily influenced by actions set in motion by her uncle, Peter the Great, such as the lavish building projects in St. Petersburg, funding the Russian Academy of Science, and measures which generally favored the nobility, such as the repeal of a primogeniture law in 1730. In the West, Anna's reign was traditionally viewed as a continuation of the transition from the old Muscovy ways to the European court envisioned by Peter the Great. Within Russia, Anna's reign is often referred to as a "dark era."WO96727.
