Alexei Mikhailovich Romanov (Russian: Àëåêñåé Ìèõàéëîâè÷) (March 9, 1629 (O.S.) – January 29, 1676 (O.S.)) was the Tsar of Russia during some of the most eventful decades of the mid-17th century. On the eve of his death in 1676, the Tsardom of Russia spanned almost 2 billion acres (8 million square kilometres).
Saint Philip II of Moscow (11 February 1507 - 12 December 1569) was a Russian Orthodox monk, who became Metropolitan of Moscow during the reign of Ivan the Terrible. He was one of a few Metropolitans who dared openly to contradict royal authority, and it is widely believed that the Tsar had him murdered on that account. He is venerated as a saint and martyr in the Eastern Orthodox Church.
Nikon (Russian: Íè́êîí, Old Russian: Í¿êîíú), born Nikita Minin (Íèêèòà Ìèíèí; May 7, 1605 Valmanovo, Russia—August 17, 1681), was the seventh patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church. This was one of the most important periods in the Church's history, as Nikon introduced many reforms which eventually led to a lasting schism known as Raskol in the Russian language.
