Czarina Elizabeth Petrovna expels more than 35,000 Jews from Russia. Russian legislators complain that the loss of Jews will create great harm to Russia's economy, but she is unmoved. She doesn't even make an exception for her own personal physician, Antonio Ribera Sanchez.

Czarina Elizabeth tells critics: "I don't desire any profits from the enemies of Christ."
