Grand Duchess Sofia Alexeyevna

She had a reason for looking so foul tempered. Her half-brother Peter the Great had her locked up ( With good cause! ) in a convent and hanged some of her streltsy outside her window.

The streltsy hanged outside her window was in fact her lover! What a bad life for her: without power, without freedom and without sex!
