Title -  Portrait of Peter the Great (1672–1725), Tsar of Russia

 

Description -  Peter the Great (1672 - 1725) ruled the Tsardom of Russia and later the Russian Empire from 1682 until his death, jointly ruling before 1696 with his elder half-brother, Ivan V.  Through a number of successful wars he expanded the Tsardom into a much larger empire that became a major European power.  He led a cultural revolution that replaced some of the traditionalist and medieval social and political systems with ones that were modern, scientific, westernized, and based on The Enlightenment.  Peter's reforms made a lasting impact on Russia and many institutions of Russian government traced their origins to his reign.
