Abstract

When Tsar Peter III of Russia was deposed by his wife in 1762, a flurry of biographical texts appeared about both the hapless Peter and the new Tsarina, Catherine II. From the first newspaper accounts to official manifestos and unofficial biographical pamphlets, these texts illustrate the interplay among factors of gender, sexuality, dynasty, and legitimacy.
