    Alexander Menshikov (1673 1729) was a good friend and companion of Peter the Great. He came from a very humble background but was quickly promoted by Peter to become a duke (1707) and the Governor General of St. Petersburg. Under his supervision the Peter and Paul Fortress and the fort of Kronshlot (now Kronshtadt) in the Gulf of Finland were built.
