Ivan the Terrible Captures Kazan

In this clip, from Sergei Eisenstein's film about Ivan the Terrible, we see the young Tsar leading his new army to Kazan.  With the help of his general, Prince Andrei Kurbsky - and the use of Dutch gunpowder - Ivan defeated Kazan.

History tells us that Ivan IV not only defeated the Tatars of Kazan, he showed them no mercy.
