Wrath of the Tsar
The titan of Russia.
He could do anything. Build a navy, an army…a whole new capital city. He was the boy tsar who became a giant.
Tsar Peter I of Russia, known as Peter the Great, was great at almost everything…except fatherhood. Peter the Great transformed Russia from an isolated and primitive borderland into an 18th century powerhouse, yet remained consumed by fears that his own son, Alexei Petrovich Romanov, was seeking to overthrow him. How did Peter rise to such magnificent power? And what fueled him to sentence his son to prison? We examine the facts behind the life, the dynasty and the empire of Peter the Great.
