Storyboard Text

  • Ivan the terrible was born in Russia in the year 1530. He took the throne 3 years later. Ivan was Russian Orthodox Christian and married Anastasia later on in life.
  • Its a boy! His name shall be Ivan
  • Ivan took the throne in 1533 when he was only 3 year old. Because he was so young, Boyars were fighting to control Ivan. They tried to control him because they thought that he was to young to rule a kingdom. Ivan did not have absolute rule at age 3 because the Boyars were controlling him.
  • YAY! I get to rule a kingdom and i am only 3.
  • I get to control him.
  • No, I do
  • No, I do
  • Ivan also had a good period between 1547-1560. During this time Ivan won great victories, added new lands to Russia, and gave Russia a code of laws. Ivan had absolute rule here because he was making all the rules
  • Sir, i just heard that your armies won and we now have that new piece of land. How have those laws going?
  • Tell the armies i said good job, and the laws are coming along.
  • So this is what it is like to be dead....
  • Ivan also had a bad period of time that started in 1560. It started after his wife died, and Ivan assumed the Boyars poisoned her so he sent police to go hunt down people that he considered traitors.
  • I killed him, the target is dead
  • Good, Ivan will be pleased
  • In 1581 Ivan killed his oldest son and heir. 3 years later Ivan died and only his 2nd son who was weak was left to rule. His 2nd son proved to be incapable of ruling so Russia experienced a time of trouble. Then Anastasia's grandnephew ruled and started the Romanov dynasty(1613-1917). Ivan had absolute rule because he killed his son to make sure he was the only one who could rule.
  • Your dead you fool.
  • YAY! I will be king soon.

  • Ivan the great had the most rule during his time because he killed his son who would be the next ruler, Ivan won wars and made rules for Russia, and he showed that he had power by accusing and killing Boyars that he though poisoned his wife.
