Peter I Alekseevich, nicknamed the Great (May 30 [June 9], 1672 – January 28 [February 8] 1725) – the last Tsar of All Russia (since 1682) and the first Emperor of All Russia (since 1721). Representative of the Romanov dynasty. He was proclaimed tsar at the age of 10, began to rule independently from 1689. The formal co-ruler of Peter was his brother Ivan (until his death in 1696). From a young age, showing interest in sciences and a foreign way of life, Peter was the first of the Russian tsars to make a long journey to the countries of Europe. Upon his return from it, in 1698, Peter developed large-scale systems of the Russian state and social order. One of the main achievements of Peter was the solution of the task set in the 16th century: the expansion of the territories of Russia in the Baltic region after the victory in the Great War of the Northern War, which in 1721 he fulfilled the title of Russian emperor. In historical science and in public opinion from the end of the 18th century to the present, there are diametrically opposite assessments of both the personality of Peter I and his role in the history of Russia. In official historiography, Peter was considered one of the most prominent statesmen who determined the direction of Russia’s development in the 18th century. However, many historians, including Nikolai Karamzin, Vasily Klyuchevsky, Pavel Milyukov and others, expressed sharply critical assessments.
