Ivan the Terrible - by Henri Troyat

Ivan the Terrible - by Henri Troyat Famous People History Social Studies Biographies

Ivan IV left an interesting legacy which is still being studied.

Ruthless, he fought battles and killed people to further his interests (and that of Muscovy).  He tortured and killed people, including friends and his own son (in a fit of rage).

Through it all, he forged the way to a new country - Russia, of the 20th century.  A highly respected author - Henri Troyat - traces Ivan's history and helps us to understand his impact.
