From May the 7th, in 1682 till his death in 1725, Peter the Great or Pyotr Alekséyevich governed the Tsardom of Russia and ultimately the Russian Empire, collectively ruling before 1696 with his older half-brother, Ivan V.
He got ports on the Azov and Baltic Seas through a series of triumphant disputes, creating the structure for the Imperial Russian Navy, ending undisputed Swedish control in the Baltic, and launching the Tsardom's development into a much larger empire that would end up being a major European force. He was the leader of a cultural revolution that saw some standard and middle ages social and political structures changed with modern-day, clinical, Westernized, and Enlightenment-based systems. Peter's reforms had a long-lasting effect on Russia, and tons of the Russian federal government's organizations can be traced back to his reign. In 1721, he changed the former title of Tsar with the title of Emperor, and he created and broadened the city of Saint Petersburg, which stayed Russia's capital till 1917.
Peter the Great has had a significance influence on the structure of Russia, the history, and the future in the succeeding decades after him. Let’s see what else he did while he was alive.
