Evdokia's name in history: Evdokia Fedorovna (1669-1731) - the first wife of Peter I, daughter of the boyar Fyodor Lopukhin.
Peter married Evdokia Fedorovna in 1689 and the next year had a son Alexey from her. Raised in the old-fashioned way, Evdokia Fyodorovna was unable to bind Peter to herself: from the very first years of marriage, he often left his wife for her favorite pastimes and soon became close to the beauty of the German settlement Anna Mons.
Contribute to the cooling of his wife dislike for her relatives, Lopukhin, adherents of Moscow antiquity. Evdokia Fyodorovna complained in vain about her loneliness and, in letters to Peter, called him to herself. Having gone abroad in 1696, Peter from London asked Lev Naryshkin to persuade Evdokia to get a haircut and immediately after returning to Moscow sent her to the Suzdal Pokrovsky Monastery.Peter did not forgive Evdokia's disregard for his mother, Queen Natalia Kirillovna, whom he treated with reverence, and gloating over her death. The archimandrite of the monastery did not agree to shave Yevdokia Fyodorovna, for which he was arrested; she was tonsured, under the name of Elena, only in 1698, Evdokia Fedorovna wore monastic dress for only half a year, then began to live in a monastery as a laywoman and entered into contact with Stepan Glebov, who had come to Suzdal for recruiting. Together with Tsarevich Alexei Petrovich, she was the center of the party hostile to Peter. The Bishop of Rostov, Dositheus, prophesied that Evdokia would soon be a queen again, and commemorated her in the churches of the "great empress". Others predicted that Peter would reconcile with his wife and leave Petersburg and his reforms. All this has been discovered from the so-called Kikinsky search for the case of Tsarevich Alexei. In sympathy with Yevdoki Fyodorovna, monks and nuns of Suzdal monasteries, the tough metropolitan Ignatius and many others were found guilty. In her letter to Peter, Yevdokiya Fyodorovna confessed everything and asked for forgiveness only so that she would not "die a worthless death."
Execution of all those involved in the case was cruelly executed. Peter, in relation to Evdokia Fyodorovna, limited herself to transferring her to the Ladoga Assumption Monastery. She was then transferred to Shlisselburg, where, under Catherine I, she was kept in a strict secret confinement.
In 1727, Evdokia Fyodorovna settled in Novodevichy, then in the Resurrection Monastery in Moscow. She was assigned a large content and given a special courtyard. Peter II and Anna Ioannovna treated her until her death with full respect, as a queen.
