Peter The Great 4


In 1682, Sophia Romanov sent her palace guards to get rid of her 'heirs'; and other
conflicts with her reign. Luckily, her two brothers 16 year old Ivan, and 10 year old
Peter escaped with there step-mother. Later on, Sophia declared that both Peter and Ivan
are the czars of Russia. In 1689, Sophia lost the mobility of her legs. She had her
guards, once again try and kill Peter. The guards, realizing that Peter was in
communication with the Gods, didn't touch Peter for they feared the wrath of God would get
them. Peter instantly had Sophia banished to a tower outside the city of Moscow. Soon
after, Peter married, and had an heir to the throne.

Eight million people lived in Russia. Ninety-five percent of all of the population
consisted of serfs, the merchants, nobles, and elite only populated five percent of
Russia. The elite, like the serfs, were not very well educated at all. Timmerman, a

    Fall of teh House of Romanov The Ruin of the Romanov Regency The Romanov family, a great and prestigious lineage, ruled over Russia from 1613 to 1917. Although it had, in the past, overcome all types of dilemmas, the Romanov family was to fall, at last, in 1917 with the resignation of Tsar Nicholas the Second.

    RUSSIAN REVOLUTION The fundamental causes of the Russian Revolution were the direct consequence of a dreadfully long period of suppression of the Russian people combined with a prolonged instability of the Russian government.

At the same time, to maintain its status as a great power, the Tsar promoted higher education. The result

Russia\'s Asian policy under Nicholas II took a decidedly expansionist and aggressive tone, culminating in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905. A primarily naval conflict on Russia\'s Far Eastern frontier, this war brought back the awful memories of
