Peter III did not dare to follow the advice of the only person who could save him, BK Minich, and under pressure from cowardly courtiers decided to surrender to the mercy of his wife and her accomplices.
He did not understand that the crown in Russia can only be lost with his head. Catherine did not have the slightest rights to the Russian throne and there was almost no chance of staying on the throne that was miraculously captured. And time was working against her - the soldiers were sobering up, the supporters of the emperor, who were at a loss (and there are, there are many of them - we will soon see this) are coming to their senses, Peter can be released and called to power at any moment. The deposed emperor could not be released anywhere - and therefore on the same day he was transported away from the Holsteinians loyal to him.
In Peterhof, they met a Cossack regiment (three thousand armed horsemen), which happened to be among the conspirators. He went to the army of Rumyantsev, to Prussia, and "the empresses who were sent met him before the imperial ones." The conspirators did not water these soldiers for several days, did not carry out "propaganda and explanatory work" among them. Silently and gloomily, the Cossacks looked at the cheeky half-drunk guards and the lawful emperor escorted by them. Turn to them now Peter, shout, call for help - and they, most likely, will fulfill their duty, disperse the St. Petersburg "Janissaries" with whips, chop into cabbage those who will raise their weapons. It won't get any worse, and the rebels will not dare to beat (and, moreover, to kill) the emperor in front of the Cossacks who do not understand anything - there are hardly any ideological "revolutionaries", fanatics and suicides among the guards. You can still try to free yourself and, together with this regiment, go to the loyal troops. And you can even try to capture the victorious Catherine with a dashing raid. Do you remember who is with her now? Drunken guards, "extremely useless" (Favier), "living in the same place in the barracks with their wives and children" (Stelin). "Guards, always terrible only for their sovereigns" (Ruhliere). And, more than anything else, they are afraid to be at the front. There are many of them: three infantry guards regiments, horse guards and hussars regiments, two infantry regiments - about 12 thousand people. These are the most reliable, from the point of view of the conspirators, units, other regiments are left to drink in St. Petersburg. By the way, why do you think so many troops are being kept in the city of 160,000? What are they doing there, in addition to "blocking the residences" (Stelin) and "somehow keeping the Court in prison" (Favier)?
But let's ask ourselves a question: are the units going to Oranienbaum ready for a serious battle?
As we remember from the last article, the Orlovs began to solder the soldiers of the Petersburg garrison back on June 26th. For 2 days the brave guardsmen, the money "borrowed" from the British, apparently, had already been spent on drink. But they demanded "the continuation of the banquet". And therefore, on the day the conspiracy began, we see such a picture in Petersburg.
Andreas Schumacher recalled:
It so happened historically that from the day of its foundation, people of 12 national diasporas lived in St. Petersburg - the British, Dutch, Swedes, French, Germans, Italians and others. At the time described, Russians did not constitute an absolute majority in the city. It was the foreigners who suffered the most during this "patriotic" rebellion, organized in favor of the German woman Catherine. Numerous eyewitnesses told how crowds of drunken soldiers broke into the houses of foreigners and robbed them, beat and even killed foreigners in the streets.
Let's continue to quote Schumacher:
The court jeweler Jeremiah Pozier told how he saved two Englishmen, who were being chased by a crowd of drunken soldiers with drawn sabers:
"They scold us in their own language," they explained to the jeweler.
Pozier saved his knowledge of the Russian language and his acquaintance with the commanders of these "Janissaries", to which he referred. He managed to "ransom" the unfortunate British (he gave all the money that was with him) and hid them in his apartment.
