He first saw service under his nominal father in the war with Sweden (1741-43). It was him who brought to the Empress the peace treaty of Abo in 1743. Thereupon he was made a colonel. His first military glory dates from the great battles of the Seven Years' War, those of Gross-Jagersdorf (1757) and Kunersdorf (1759).

Throughout the reign of Catherine the Great, Rumyantsev was supreme governor of Ukraine. In this post, which his father had held with so much honesty, Rumyantsev made his priority to eliminate any autonomy of the hetmans and to fully incorporate the newly-conquered territories into the Empire. He is often blamed for having promoted serfdom in New Russia, but obviously this was not a policy of his choosing. Catherine II (Екатерина II Алексеевна: Yekaterína II Alekséyevna, April 21, 1729 - November 6, 1796), born Sophie Augusta Fredericka, known as Catherine the Great, reigned as empress of Russia from June 28, 1762, to her death on November 6, 1796. ...

For these dazzling victories he was made Field-Marshal and awarded the title Zadunaisky (i.e., the Trans-Danubian). When his forces approached Shumla in 1774, the Sultan started to panic and sued for peace, which was signed by Rumyanstev upon a military tambourine at the village of Kuchuk-Kainarji.

At that point, Rumyantsev was undoubtedly the most famous Russian commander. It is said that other Catharinian generals, notably Potemkin, were so jealous of his fame that they wouldn't permit him to take the command again. In the times of peace, Rumyantsev expressed his innovative views on the martial art in the Instructions (1761), Customs of Military Service (1770), and the Thoughts (1777). These works provided a theoretical base for reorganisation of the Russian army undertaken by Potemkin.

During the Second Russo-Turkish War, Zadunaisky suspected Potemkin of deliberately curtailing supplies of his army and presently resigned command. In the Polish campaign of 1794 he was again appointed commander-in-chief, but the armies were led into battle by his rival Suvorov. This time Rumyantsev didn't bother even to leave his Ukrainian manor at Tashan which he had rebuilt into a fortress. He died there on December 8, 1796, several month after Catherine's death.

Nikolay Petrovich Rumyantsev

As the story goes, old Rumyantsev-Zadunaisky grew enormously fat and avaricious, so that he pretended not to recognize his own sons, when they came from the capital to ask for money. Neither of his children married, and the comital branch of the family went extinct upon their death.

Among these sons, Count Nikolay Petrovich (1754-1826) was the only one to reach the highest offices of state. Being on friendly terms with the future Alexander I and his mother, he served as Minister of Commerce (1802-11) and President of the State Council (1810-12). As foreign minister (appointed 1808), he advocated closer alliance with France. On receiving the news of Napoleon's invasion of Russia (1812), he suffered a stroke and lost his hearing. When Napoleon entered Moscow, he advised to the Emperor to dismiss Kutuzov and to seek peace at any cost.
