... dresses, shoes, gloves, and other accessories on display, including Catherine the Great’s wedding dress and coronation ermine cape. Each had a train at least 6 feet long.

... Found out it was built by Peter the Great, who also built St Petersburg on demand and made people build houses specifically to their class through 3 designs. He was a very demanding fellow and conscripted people from all over his empire to make them move to St Petersburg, this is when it became the capital of Moscow.
