The paper illustrates the terrors and unremitting hostility of Ivan IV and shows how Russia suffered greatly under his leadership. The paper discusses how, although Ivan started out with improvements for Russia in mind and certainly had the intelligence and political pull to accomplish great things, he allowed himself and his government to get dragged down in impossible battles. The paper shows how due to his mental state, Ivan ran his government in a formidable way and was considered fearsome by many of his subjects. The paper concludes that Ivan perpetuated the flawed system and created deep animosities that would cause more problems in the future.
