Elizaveta Petrovna December 29, 1709 January 5, 1762 (New Style); December 18, 1709 December 25, 1761 (Old Style), also known as Yelisavet and Elizabeth , was an Empress of Russia (17411762) who took the country into the War of Austrian Succession (17401748) and the Seven Years' War (1756 1763). On the eve of her death in 1762, the Russian empire spanned almost 4 billion acres. Her domestic policies allowed the nobles to gain dominance in local government while shortening their terms of service to the state.She encouraged Lomonosov's establishment of the University of Moscow and Shuvalov's foundation of the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint Petersburg. The Winter Palace and the Smolny Cathedral remain the chief monuments of her reign in Saint Petersburg. Generally, she was one of the best loved Russian monarchs, because she did not allow Germans in the government and not one person was executed during her reign.
