The area now known as Russia has experienced many changes in name, ideology, and rule over its long history. It is situated in the northern part of Asia bounded by Arctic and Pacific Oceans, Caucasus mountain ranges, and Europe. The country began its history as the Principality of Muscovy. The nation emerged in the 12th century after more than 200 years of Mongol control and grew by conquering surrounding territories. Ivan III ruled from 1462 to 1505, referring to this empire as the “Third Rome.” Ivan IV the Terrible, who ruled from 1530 to 1584, was the first official tsar. Boris Godunov followed Ivan the Terrible during the era titled the Time of Troubles. Mikhail Romanov established the Romanov Dynasty in 1613 with a period of stability and continued expansion.
Under Peter I, who ruled 1682-1725, the nation continued to expand to the Baltic Sea and the country was renamed the Russian Empire. Modernization and European influences spread in Russia under Peter. He moved the capital from Moscow to St. Petersburg and westernized the military and education. His introduction of Western ideas and customs generated nationalistic backlash and created the rivalry between “Westernizers” and “Slavophiles”, which still exists today. Catherine the Great continued modernizing the country from 1762 to 1796, establishing Russia as a European power. When Poland divided in 1772, Catherine segregated the Jewish population into “The Pale of Settlement.”
