Big Trouble: On the organization of life under False Dmitry II in Russia


Historical the journals publishing materials on the network today about the events of the past continue to try to deal with plots that will not be written about in classical history textbooks. Some users, amateurs and connoisseurs of history are interested in this, while others are irritated. The negative is primarily due to the fact that often narratives about the history of a particular period are based not on specific facts, but on the author's conjectures. But this is not always the case.

One of the directions for research, which is popular today, is associated with the era of the Great Troubles in Russia. Everyone knows that at the beginning of the XNUMXth century, people came to Russia one after the other, posing as “the miracle of the surviving Tsarevich Dimitri”.

In the classical history, the campaigns of False Dmitry II are described in sufficient detail, Polish support for the wedding to the reign of False Dmitry II, opposition from the Russian militia. At the same time, there are topics about which little or nothing is said at all. Among such topics is the organization of everyday life and management in those territories of Russia that were under the rule of the invaders.

The historical channel Proshloe examines life in Russia during the era of the Tushino thief, as False Dmitry II was often called - the only one of all the impostors who was crowned on the Russian throne. The material tells about the organization of life and the system of power in the capital of False Dmitry II, about his role in the organization, about the way that newcomers were built in the country.
