Anna Ivanovna had her serfs build a massive castle from solid ice to celebrate Russian victory over the Ottoman Empire. She had them chisel an expansive ice garden that included orchards and birds, walls and statues.

She died by the time her castle melted; she was NOT a nice person, so no tears need be shed for the cold-hearted queen.
