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?
This month four hundred years ago, the famed Mayflower began its journey across the Atlantic. After abandoning its sister ship, the Speedwell, which was not seaworthy, the Mayflower finally set sail in September. The people on the Mayflower all belonged to an obscure sect called the Brownists. The founder, Brown himself, had already abandoned the sect and returned to the king’s Church of England. The Pilgrim fathers were woefully badly prepared for their journey, lacking proper farm implements and livestock. The miracle is that they survived at all!
