Did You Know?


Peter's half-brother Ivan is shown as tsar when the Streltsy rioted, with Peter becoming co-tsar afterwards. This the complete opposite of what actually happened. Peter was anointed tsar after the death of his brother Feodor III, instead of Ivan who was considered mentally unfit to take the throne. Ivan only became co-tsar because the Streltsy insisted on it.
