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.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
In 1890, nine-year-old Daisy Ashford wrote a novel and never showed it to the world. It was only after her mother’s death some twenty-eight years later, when she was sorting through old papers with her sisters, that she found the manuscript in a drawer. After the manuscript found its way to publishers, the book – The Young Visiters – came out in 1919, (yes, that is how the title was spelled) to great acclaim. After the book went into several editions, Daisy bought a farm with her earnings, commenting, “I like fresh air and royalty cheques”.
