"Peter the Great"
Pyotr Alexeyevich Romanov, formally known as Peter the Great was born in Moscow, Russia on June 9, 1672. Peter was a Russian tzar in the late 17th century. He was best known for his large reforms in an attempt to make Russia as a great nation. Peter the Great made a lot of change to Russia. He wanted to westernize the country and make it more modern. Peter traveled to other countries to see what they were doing there so it can give him an idea to what change he wants to bring in his country. He made all the men shave their beards and if they wanted to have beards they had to pay taxes. Everyone had to dress in western clothes, and he fixed schools in Moscow.Peter had to face a challenge which was the nobility of Russia, some of them didn't agree with the changes he was planning. To fix this, Peter narrowed down the power of the nobles through policies, finally he made himself an absolute monarch.
Peter the Great's father Alexis had passed away in January 1676. Peter’s older brother Theodore III took the place of his father, but then Theodore died in 1682, and then Peter was chosen by the Boyar Duma (council of Russian nobles) to take the place of the throne. Peter received the throne along with his brother Ivan V. Ivan was physically and mentally disabled, so this was simply a ceremony.

Peter had passed away in the year of 1725 due to his health issues with his urinary tract and bladder. He is buried in the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, which is located in in St. Petersburg.
