  Not so long ago, Peter the Great was commonly portrayed by historians on both sides of the Iron Curtain as a proto-Homo Sovieticus: an icon of muscular masculinity, giant in both frame and ing to this tradition, it was Peter's distinctive genius to drag a backward and xenophobic Muscovy, kicking and screaming, into the rational modern world. Sold into Turkish slavery, Abram Petrovich Hannibal was brought as a black servant to Czar Peter I, known as Peter the Great. He became one of the royal favorites, a general-in-chief, and one of the best educated men in Russia in his era.

Peter the Great is one of the best-written history books Ive encountered. Despite the title, this is not a biography it is an incredible narrative history of the times of Peter the Great. I found this to be not only an outstanding book about Russian history but also an excellent book about Western history in the 17th and 18th centuries/5.

In England, Peter met with King William III, visited Greenwich and Oxford, posed for Sir Godfrey Kneller, and saw a Royal Navy Fleet Review at Deptford. He studied the English techniques of city-building he would later use to great effect at Saint : Alexis of Russia.

On SeptemPeter met with William III, who governed both the Netherlands and England, and the States-General in October of that year. William was in Utrecht at the time. On invitation from William, Peter visited England in He stayed there for days.

While in Britain, he had an affair with Letitia Cross. Peter the Great. InPeter the Great of Russia travelled to England to learn about shipbuilding and navigation in order to establish the first Russian Navy.

Tsar Peter I of Russia (–), better known as Peter the Great, created the Russian Navy. A few primary sources on Peter the Great over a period of time.

The first: A short writing by an English Bishop with whom Peter stayed in the winter of A very good insight into Peter as a person, habits, mannerisms, etc.

rather than his accomplishments as a czar. The second: A writing by Von Korb. Peter the Great was born Pyotr Alekseyevich on June 9, in Moscow, Russia. Peter the Great was the 14th child of Czar Alexis by his second wife, Natalya Kirillovna Naryshkina.

Having ruled jointly with his brother Ivan V fromwhen Ivan died inPeter was officially declared Sovereign of all :   Russian historiography has been richly endowed with numerous topics of enduring interest such as the founding of the Kievan Russian State in the ninth century and its later demise, the Mongol conquest in and its consequences, the rise of the Muscovite state between andserfdom, Ivan the Terrible and his Oprichnina, Peter the Great and.

Peter I, better known as Peter the Great, is generally credited with bringing Russia into the modern age. During his time as czar, from until his Author: Jesse Greenspan. Peter I, tsar of Russia who reigned jointly with his half-brother Ivan V (–96) and alone thereafter (–) and who in was proclaimed emperor.

In England, he met the English king William III, and his inquisitive nature took him to a session of Parliament at Westminster. During his foreign travels, Peter picked up. Monument to Peter the Great on Senatskaya Ploshchad.

In the background is the Ss. Peter and Paul Cathedral, where Peter is buried Peter the Great was the youngest son of Alexey I and his second wife, Natalya Naryshkina. Alexey was succeeded by the invalid Fyodor III, Peter's eldest half-brother.

Proper nonfiction history books, not historical fiction, about any period, event, area or topic you like. Just well-written, well-researched, informative and interesting books for historians, history students and history enthusiasts. I didn't mean this to be a list of pop history, but I think it's too late now, so you might as well go ahead.

Around this day inTsar Peter I—known as Peter the Great—established a beard tax. He wasn’t the only ruler in history to do this—England’s Henry. Eufrosina Dvoichenko-Markov, William Penn and Peter the Great, Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society , Vol.

97, No. 1 (Feb. 14, ). An excellent source describing an anecdote of when Peter the Great made a trip to England where he meets. Robert K Massie's 'Peter the Great: His Life and World' is a masterpiece. Successfully weaving together contemporary sources with his brilliant analysis, Massie narrates the life of Peter the Great.

As always, Massie is a brilliant writer and this being my third Massie book, I knew I would not be disappointed/5. During this trek, Peter met Isaak Newton, he went to Oxford University, the British Royal Mint, and the Dutch naval yard.

While he was in Nederland he learned a lot about the life in Western Europe. He met King William III when he went in England. Peter the Great: His Life and World by Robert Massie is a wonderful book that focuses extensively (among other things) on Peter working and interacting with "blue collar" workers in order to understand Western European technology.

Russia was pretty backwards technologically, and Peter wanted to experience first hand what modern Europe had to offer. Robert K. Massie was born in Lexington, Kentucky, and studied American history at Yale and European history at Oxford, which he attended as a Rhodes Scholar.

He was president of the Authors Guild from to His books include Nicholas and Alexandra, Peter the Great: His Life and World (for which he won a Pulitzer Prize for biography), The Romanovs: The Final 4/5(25). It may seem rather unusual to begin a study of western heritage by introducing a question regarding the Apostles.

The omission of the majority of the Apostles in the book of Acts, and where they are found later, provides an important key in the study of our heritage. Knowledgeable Bible students know that the patriarch Jacob had 12 sons. Inyear-old Sophie was invited to Russia by Czarina Elizabeth, a daughter of Peter the Great who had assumed the Russian throne.

The History Learning Site, 16 Mar 18 Dec Peter the Great was born in and he died in Peter was tsar of Russia from to His self-given title was Peter the Great though he was officially Peter I.

Peter the Great is credited with dragging Russia out of the medieval times to such an extent. Peter the Great was that rare autocrat that liked to lead by example.

He viewed his trip to Europe as a journey of knowledge that would have the potential to positively impact the people.
