It is worth noting that the residents of Moscow accepted this event without complaint. At that moment, chaos and utter lawlessness reigned in the country: theft, robbery, arson and murder were the norm for that time. But where was the Russian tsar? Why was he inactive when the Kremlin was captured by enemies?
And there was no king. The last Tsar Vasily Shuisky has been a monk for several months now. Seven boyars grab rule the country, quietly sit behind the Kremlin wall. They could not retain power and restore order. And they themselves offered the Russian throne to the Polish prince Vladislav. August 27 1610, Moscow swore allegiance Poland.
