Yevgeny Anisimov from St. Petersburg has created a digital chronicle of Peter the Great. He put together more than 40 facts about the Russian Emperor who founded St. Petersburg. According to the Higher School of Economics press office, it took him more than 40 years.
Although there have been a lot of studies into the biography of Peter the First, researchers still argue about some details of his life. Thus, unlike other researchers, Yevgeny Anisimov believes the Emperor died of a stroke.
The chronicle he compiled illustrates the life of Peer the Great practically day by day.
