Liberators and Losers...

The narrative of the backward Russia was always a popular one - by the wannabe conquerors:

Napoleon wanted to free the serfs, Hitler the Russians from Bolshevism... well, we know, how it ended!

One should not forget, that Russia had amassed the biggest part of this planet long before Peter the Great!

From 30 May to 24 September 2017, this exhibition will be dedicated to the stay of Peter the Great in Paris and at the Palace of Versailles in May and June 1717, celebrating the tercentenary of his trip in France.

Thanks to a partnership between the Palace of Versailles and the State Hermitage Museum in St-Petersburg, the exhibition will present what was one of the major diplomatic and cultural event at the beginning of Louis XV's reign only two years after Louis XIV's death.

Tsar Peter I endeavored to stop arranged marriages. This affected him personally as his owned arranged marriage to Eudoxia Lopukhina was disastrous.
