Today in history - October 17, 1740


Ivan VI was the son of Prince Anton Ulrich of Braunschweig-Bevern-Lüneburg and Anna Leopoldovna, the niece of Empress Anna. His grand-aunt Empress Anna of Russia adopted the eight-week-old boy and declared him her successor on 5 October 1740.

On the accession of Peter III the situation of Ivan seemed about to improve, for the new emperor visited and sympathised with his plight; but Peter himself was deposed a few weeks later. New instructions were sent to Ivan’s guardian, who received orders to place manacles on his charge, and even to scourge him should he become refractory.
