Gallery Three:
The Czars in Private

As you enter the gallery, you will notice a small suit of armor against a wall near a sleigh. The sleigh was made for the daughter of Ivan V; it may also have been used by Peter the Great as a boy. The armor probably was made for the Czarevich Alexei, son of Mikhail Feodorovich. Just like an adult suit of armor, it features a helmet, breastplate and two gauntlets. One gauntlet has been lost.
Featured Item: Child's Armor
