Peter I (9/06/1672-8/02/1725) was the son of Alexis I (1645-1676) and succeeded his brother Fedor III (1676-1682). He acceded to the throne under the regency of his half-sister, Sophie, and his half-brother, Ivan V. He reigned from 1689 and became tsar of Russia after the death of his half-brother. In 1698, he crushed the revolt of the imperial guard, the Streltsi, and Sophie was consigned to a convent where she would die. He completely reformed Russia from 1700 and travelled many times to Europe (United Provinces, England, France). An autocrat and reformer of customs and traditional life, he nonetheless he had his first wife immured and had his son Alexis tortured to death (1718). He married a former camp follower, Catherine I. In external politics, he was the implacable enemy of Charles Xii of Sweden (1697-1712) whom he vanquished at the Poltava in 1709. At the treaty of Nystadt, he seized Swedish continental possessions. He was less fortunate with the Turks and had to return Azov which he had previously taken. He founded a new capital open to the Baltic and the world, Saint Petersburg, in 1703. He created the Russian navy and merchant marine. He died in 1725.

Coin took a while to arrive; little concerned by lack of communication from seller. However, quality of the coin is excellent (better than the description) & far outweighs the delay. Would recommend.
