Shuvalov Piotr Ivanovich, count 1784-1854

General-Feldzeugmeister, conference-minister, most authoritative statesman in the reign of Elizabeth Petrovna. Cousin to the Empress's favorite Ivan Ivanovich Shuvalov (1727-1797). Reorganized the Russian Army, having enhanced the role of artillery; invented a new howitzer ("Unicorn").
The gravestone in the form of a topped column with a vase on a pedestal replaced the original (unsurviving) in 1800s.
