9781330442845: The False Dmitri: A Russian Romance and Tragedy (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The False Dmitri: A Russian Romance and Tragedy

While gathering material for my portrait-gallery of Some Russian Heroes, Saints and Sinners, a book soon to be published, I had occasion not only to read official and diplomatic records, but also documents compiled by private persons of various nationalities - eye-witnesses of stirring events then being enacted in Muscovy. Especially when dealing with the early years of the seventeenth century I came across some interesting narratives written by British residents in Moscow, which supply vivid descriptions and first-hand evidence of that stormy yet glittering episode - the Coming, the Brief Reign, and the Tragic Passing of the gallant and mysterious Pretender Dmitri and of the "Troublous Times" which followed after.

The episodes described in the following narratives took place during a period of political and national upheaval, during which "many strangers were murthered, the English except, who have in all changes been well beloued by the Russians."
