The Pages Corps was established in 1759. In accordance with the rules on the order of enrollment, since 1802 only children of persons of the first three grades of the Table of Ranks (not lower than Lieutenant General or Privy Councilor) could become pages. Enrollment in the Corps of Pages was made only by the highest command. In addition to their studies, the page-chambers carried out court service together with the members of the imperial family.
