Kazan Khanate: The Land Conquered by Ivan IV Biographies Famous People Social Studies World History Russian Studies Geography

This Russian-language map depicts the changing territory of the Kazan Khanate, from the end of the 15th to the beginning of the 16th centuries:

  • The slash-marked territory depicts Kazan at the beginning of its ascendancy
  • The dot-marked territory depicts Kazan at the height of its ascendancy (before troops loyal to Ivan IV decimated the town)

Note that the Volga River flows through the Kazan Khanate, providing an excellent means of transportation for many purposes.
