Peter ascended to the throne at 11 years of age. He was the grandson of Peter the great (the son of Alexei Petrovich) and the son of a German Princess. He was the last direct representative of the Romanov dynasty in the male line. As for Catherine I, the power was in the hands of Menshikov, and then the princes Dolgoruky. In 1728 the capital was moved again to Moscow, but in 1730 returned to St Petersburg.
Under Peter II minted the same coin that when Catherine (5 cents, the ruble, poltina and dime), but partially also produced a gold Ducat.
