A na Leopoldowna and Ker son Ivan, came back to the throne of her father through the conspir acy achieved by Alexis Razum ovsky. After her accession, to Russia's throne, Elizabeth proposed mar riage to Razumovsky, a request equivalent to a command, and married him morganatically in the palace chapel. Although Elizabeth had one daughter, she made Peter of Hol stein, husband of the famous Empress Catherine, her heir. The marriage of Elizabeth and Raz umovsky was not happy. Elizabeth of England in the thirteenth year of her reign found her kingdom in such a perilous crisis that she sent an ambassador to the Emperor Maximilian at Spires, informing him that she would be willing to make alliance with his brother, the Archduke Charles. The emperor replied that his brother "had turned his thoughts on another match and was now. engaged to a princess with whom there could be no disputes on the subject of religion." Elizabeth naturally grew wroth over the ungracious refusal of her pro posal, d...

The most recent marriage con summated through the known proposal of the woman was that of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands to the Prince Con sort Henry. Queen Wilhelmina, who had ascended the throne as" a child with her mother as regent, had an experience very similar to that of Queen Victoria. With the eligible royalties of Europe at her dispos al she selected a prince whose principal diplomatic claim was his obscurity. The details of the proposal method were more carefully guarded than those of her prede cessors in the art, but the Dutch people greeted their queen's be trothal with 'acclaim.

He has received three gold medals from the Austrian Imper ial Academy of Sciences at Vien na for comet discoveries the greatest number of gold medals for astronomy ever held by any man. He has received the Lalande silver medal and 540 francs from France for the niost rapid discov ery of comets ever made.
