A note on 'Ivan the Terrible' - in Russia, Ivan IV has the epithet 'Гро́зный' meaning 'Great' or 'Formidable'. So why is he known as Ivan 'the Terrible' in English? Because he was evil or useless or because of anti-Russian bias? No, because 'Terrible' in English also means awesome or formidable - this was well understood when 'Гро́зный' was first translated into English centuries ago, but now fewer people understand this. (see definitions 3 & 4 here: www.dictionary.com/browse/terr... . The name stuck, and Ivan IV has been known as Ivan the Terrible ever since.

Battle of the Ice is probably one of the coolest names given to a medeval battle in my opinion
That was very enlightening. As an American, I didn't learn a single thing about Russia while we were in school. If we learned about anything, it was related to Britain in one way or another, but we didn't learn a lot about them either. Thank you for the video.

Many thanks for this overview of Russia. The thing that seems the most prevalent is Russia & it's people have endured many wars...in fact, whether fighting outwardly or internally, war seems to define these people. I would not underestimate such stolid, brave people that have endured much for their country to become a major world power!

So this video is telling us in a way that Ukraine was always divided between Poland/Lithuania and Russia for the most part

It's a great documentary: visually and didactally extremely well done - you can't take off your eyes. I don't have a sufficiently historically based opinion due to lack of knowledge, but it seems very consistent with what I do know. Thank you, Toby.

Long Long tough and uneasy history they had and yet they managed to create soo many beautiful and tender art jewels, most amazing composers, writers, painters, architects. Great taste, strong and sensitive at the same time. Your culture always inspired me.

Russian history, it's can be hectic, chaotic, bloody and traumatic, but no one can say that it was ever boring.

I was lucky to have visited Russia, studied the art, history, all before the revolution of ‘17. Visited the places where a lot a history was made. I left, hungry for more. Maybe one day.

Wild how their history swings back and forth from glory to having to sign something extremely humiliating several times
What a fascinating history.

I think stylistically this is one of the best documentaries about any country, people, or civilization.

My professor in political science stood infront of the whole class and said that if we choose his course because we wanted to know more about politics then we were better of quitting the course. He said "if you want to know about politics you shouldn't study political science, you should be studying history"
