There was no Act of succession until the end of the 18th century that’s why the 18th century in Russian history is all about the coups. Empresses Elizabeth and Catherine II ascended the throne as the result of conspiracy. In the 19th century Alexander II, tsar-liberator who abolished the serfdom was assassinated. And the tragedy of the last Russian tsar in 1917.
