The Romanov Dynasty is Born

In this room, you will notice a large tapestry. It tells the story of the crowning of Czar Mikhail Feodorovich, the first in a long line of Romanovs. Now, step to the center of the gallery. In the free standing case, you see the Cap of Monomach of the Second Order. This crown is in the traditional style worn by czars in the 17th century. It was made in 1682 for a dual coronation: Ivan V and his younger half-brother, Peter the First. Peter, who was 10 at his coronation, wore this crown. He would later be known as Peter the Great.
