Peter III, who became Emperor after the death of Elizabeth in 1761, made a number of reforms, which have caused indignation among the upper classes of society. Originating from the German kind, it was feared, many believed that the Emperor is trying to weaken Russia. Opinion was reinforced by the attitude of Peter III to the Church and a desire to limit its influence. The Emperor's wife, Catherine (also from Germany) agreed with the government of France and England about the organization of the coup, and promised in case of victory of great privilege. The conspiracy was prepared for several months, and 28 June 1762 (old style) he was almost exposed, prompting the need for decisive action on the part of the conspirators. On the side of the Empress were almost all upper class, and the Emperor abdicated. Later for unclear reasons he was killed.
