Russian Royalty. The eldest daughter of Czar Peter I the Great of Russia and his second wife Catherine I. Since she was born prior to her parents' Russian Orthodox wedding in 1712, several royal European families rejected her as a prospective bride for their heir. In May 1725, the Grand Duchess Anna of the Imperial House of Romanov was married to Friedrich Wilhelm Kettler, Herzog von Kurland of Sweden with a premarital agreement, dated November 1724, to denounced any rights to the Russian throne after their marriage. Her father died the January before her marriage. Many historians summarize that she should have Peter's heir to the throne instead of his wife Catherine I. In 1728, the couple had their only child, who later became Czar Peter III. He came to Russia throne after the death of Elizabeth I, who was Anna's younger sister. Anna died a few days after the childbirth.
