I thought, and I am going from memory here, that the fifteen year old Peter II was married for one day to Princess Catherine before he died from smallpox. Not much chance there for a pregnancy.

You are right. He married Catherine Dolgorukova and died the next day. They, supposedly, pushed her into bed with him the night of the wedding. Of course, there were no children and thus ended the direct maile line of the Romanovs. He was suceeded by his cousin Anna Ivanovna, who was the daughter of Ivan V and the niece of Peter I.

This is from Wikipedia: "Whilst he lay dying, his new wife was pushed into his deathbed in a desperate attempt to make her pregnant."
Hard to imagine.

You are right. Actually, amusing. How did they think a dying man was going to have sex with anyone? Maybe, it is just a made up tale.

It is rather pathetic, isn't it?
Intrigued by Prince of Poland's query, I began some research to see if there was any rumor about a child from the short-lived, unconsumated marriage, and found nothing.

So, what happened to the Czarina Catherine? She was married to the Czar, afterall--even though he died--but that wasn't her fault.

The marriage did not take place, this is speculation. Her family tried to usurp the throne, so they were beheaded and she was sent to Siberia by the rightful Empress Anna. Then returned back by another usurper - Empress Elizabeth.

It was rumored that he and Elizabeth Petrovna, who would have been his half aunt ( his father's half sister) were actually lovers- they were close. He led a wild life for someone who died only age 14-15.

When someone inquired to the future Tsar Peter II what he wanted most, he burst into tears and replied "never to be separated from Natalia".
The Grand Duchess Natalia was the sister of Peter II.
