Although he was tsar only from 1682-1725, he is credited with beginning the Westernization of Russia and starting it on the road to becoming an international power. There was much turmoil during his reign and Peter could be quite brutal at times, even his half-sister Sofia and wife Eudoxia were forced to become nuns when they conspired against him. Peter the Great, Peter I or Pyotr Alexeyevich Romanov (Russian: ???? ??????????? ????????, ???? I, Pyotr I, or ???? ????????, Pyotr Velikiy) (9 June [O.S. 30 May] 1672 – 8 February [O.S. 28 January] 1725)[note 1] ruled the Tsardom of Russia and later the Russian Empire from 7 May [O.S. 27 April] 1682 until his death, jointly ruling before 1696 with his half-brother. In numerous successful wars he expanded the Tsardom into a huge empire that became a major European power. According to historian James Cracraft, he led a cultural revolution that replaced the traditionalist and medieval social and political system with a modern, scientific, Europe-oriented, and rationalist system.
