The paper graphically portrays the terror of Ivan's revolution and explains that those who opposed his reign and were caught were executed without mercy. The paper explores how Ivan IV's 37 year reign, which encompassed civil wars, mass murder and territorial expansion, ended in disaster and led to the 300-year reign of the Romanov dynasty. The paper illustrates how, among the chaos, he left behind a deep sense of insecurity and fright that was felt by every class as well as his foreign enemies.
