Russia, Peter II Alexeyevich, 17 May 1727 30 January 1730

|Russia|, |Russia,| |Peter| |II| |Alexeyevich,| |17| |May| |1727| || |30| |January| |1730||Rouble|
Peter II Alexeyevich ruled Russia from age 11 until his untimely death at 14. His mother died when he was ten days old. His father, the tsarevich Alexei, accused of treason by his own father, Peter the Great, died in prison in 1718. Three-year-old Peter and his four-year-old sister, Natalya, were orphans. Their grandfather ignored them. His earliest governesses were the wives of a tailor and a vintner. Peter the Great died in 1725 and was succeeded by his second wife, Catherine I. During the reign of Catherine, young Peter was ignored but was assigned a program of education that included history, geography, mathematics, and foreign languages. Peter was uninterested, preferring hunting and feasting. When Catherine died in 1727, the court named Peter heir, even though Catherine had two daughters of her own. Peter II was quick-witted, but stubborn, and had no desire to rule. In late December 1729 Peter fell dangerously ill. The next day doctors diagnosed smallpox. He died on 30 January. A few minutes before his death, in his delirium, he ordered horses so that he could visit his sister Natalya who had died in 1725.
