Pyotr Alexeyevich Romanov, also known as Peter the Great (9 June 1672 – 8 February 1725) ruled Russia and later the Russian Empire from 7 May 1682 until his death, jointly ruling before 1696 with his weak and sickly half-brother, Ivan V.

He carried out a policy of modernization and expansion that transformed the Tsardom of Russia into a 3-billion acre Russian Empire, a major European power.

Peter I in 1632Edit

Despite the fact that Grantville arrived in the past four decades before Peter I was scheduled to be born, and the fact that Grantville's arrival almost certainly made his eventual birth impossible, 17th century Russian nobility were angered when they learned of Peter the Great's rule and reform policies.
