Abstract. The paper examines a commonly accepted hypothesis that choosing a spouse for Grand Duke Pyotr Fyodorovich and deciding in favour of Princess Sophie Friederike Auguste von Anhalt-Zerbst-Dornburg (the future Empress Catherine the Great), Empress Elizaveta Petrovna was under the Prussian influence. Scientific originality of the study lies in the fact that the authors clarify the circumstances preceding the young Princess arrival in Russia. The conclusion is made that the Prussian diplomacy did not play a key role in decision making concerning the arrival of Princess Sophie Friederike Auguste von Anhalt-Zerbst-Dornburg in Russia.
