Peter I of Russia was called Peter the Great. His real name was Pyotr Alexeyevich Romanov. He was born in Moscow on June 9, 1672. He ruled the Russian Empire from May 7, 1682 to 1696. He was a dynamic tsar and carried out a policy of Westernisation and expansion, because of which the Tsardom of Russia was transformed into the Russian Empire. He died at the age of 52 on February 8, 1725.
