Moscow

FOUND IN:

In early times, Moscow was not a place of any consequence at all. It's rise really began under the grandson of Alexander Nevsky of Novgorod, and continued down the generations because, by chance, its rulers were usually survived by a single son who did not have to split his inheritance. The rise of Moscow, the atmosphere of the city and its Kremlin at the time of Ivan the Terrible are described in the 'Ivan' chapter of RUSSKA.
