Tsaritsa Anna Ivanovna


This miniature of Tsaritsa Anna Ivanova is one of a set depicting Russian rulers. Anna played a nasty game of hardball, terrorizing and executing those opposed to her. She also favored Germans over Russians for senior posts. The Romanov-German link would prove fatal to the Romanovs and Hessian spouses during the Bolshevik revolution. Her Wikipedia article is here.
