Peter Carl Fabergé was born in Russia in Saint Petersburg, his father German and his mother from Danish descent. His family tree can also be traced back to France where his paternal ancestors were Huguenots, originally from La Bouteille, Picardy, who fled from France after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, first to Germany near Berlin, then in 1800 to the Baltic province of Livonia, then part of Russia.
