The government of Boris Godunov, the news of the appearance of a person in Poland, called Dimitri who stated in their charters of its history as follows.

. Vishnevetskogo, which for the first time and announced his alleged royal origin. This story, repeated later by the Government of the Tsar Basil Shuisky, which entered the greater part of the Russian chronicles and legends, and based mainly on testimony or "izvete" referred to Barlaam, was first fully accepted by historians. Miller Shcherbatov, Karamzin, Artsybashev, SM. Dimitri Soloviev identifies with Gregory Otrepyev. Already very early, however, arose and doubts about the correctness of such otozhestvleniya. For the first time such a question was raised in the press Metropolitan Platon ( "Brief History of the Church", ed. 3rd, p.. 141), then more specifically deny the identity and Dimitri Otrepiev п-.пг. Malinowski (Biographical information about Prince D.M. Pozharsky, Moscow, 1817), Stamp. Pogodin, YA.I. Berednikov (Journal of the Ministry of National Education ", 1835, VII, 118 - 120) and especially NI. Kostomarov. The question of the identity of the first Dimitri remains open. Almost proven can be considered only that he was not conscious liar and is only an instrument in the hands of others, for the overthrow of Tsar Boris. Another Shcherbatov considered the true culprits appearance of the pretender discontented boyars Boris; opinion is shared by most historians, some of which have a significant role in the preparation of the pretender assign the Poles, and in particular, the Jesuits. Reliable Dimitri story begins with its appearance in 1601, Mr.. the court of Prince Konstantin Ostrog, where he joined Goschu, in the Arian school and then to Prince Al. Vyshnevetskoho, who announced his alleged royal origin, caused by this, according to one story, a disease for another - insult to him Vishnevetsky. Last believe Dimitri, as well as some other Polish nobles, the more so at the outset and were the Russian people, confessing to Dimitri allegedly murdered Tsarevich. Especially became close friends with Dimitri voivod Sandomirskii, Yuri Mnishkom, in whose daughter, Marina, he fell in love. He tried to start relations with King Sigismund, in which the following is probably the advice of his Polish-wishers, expected to act through the Jesuits, the latter promising to adhere to Catholicism. Curia, . seeing the emergence of Dimitri long wished the case to convert to Catholicism, Moscow State, . asked its nuncio in Poland, . Rangoni, . enter into relations with Dimitri, . explore its intentions and, . turning to Catholicism, . assist him,
. In early 1604, Mr.. Dimitri in Krakow was presented to the King Apostolic Nuncio, April 17 accomplished its transition to Catholicism. Sigismund recognized Dimitri, had promised him 40,000 zlotys annual maintenance, but not formally made on his behalf, is allowed only wishing to help the prince. During that Dimitri had promised to give Poland, Smolensk and Seversk land and enter the Moscow State Catholicism. Back in Sambor, . Dimitri gave his arm to Marina Mnishek; proposal was accepted, . and he gave his bride entry, . to which undertook not to embarrass her in matters of faith and give her full possession of Novgorod and Pskov, . than in those cities should have been left for Marina even if its barrenness,
. Mnishek scored for the future son-in-a small army of Polish adventurers that joined 200 Little Russia Cossacks and a small detachment of the Don. With these forces Lzhedimiry August 15, 1604, Mr.. opened the campaign, and in October crossed the border of Moscow. Charm behalf of Prince Dmitry Godunov and discontent soon made themselves felt. Morawski, Chernigov, Putivl and other cities surrendered without a fight Dimitri; held only Novgorod-Seversky, where the voivod was P.F. Basmanov. 50 thousandth Muscovite army under the command of Mstsislauye yavivsheesya to the rescue of this city, was routed Dimitri, with its army of 15000. VI. Shujskij defeated Dimitri, 21 January 1605, when Dobrynich, but then the Muscovite troops occupied futile siege Rylsk and Krom, and meanwhile Dimitri entrenched in Putivl received new reinforcements. Unhappy with the actions of their governor, King Boris sent to the army P.F. Basmanova before summoned to Moscow and generously awarded, but Basmanov could not stop being enacted Troubles. April 13 Tsar Boris died suddenly, and all the army on May 7, with Basmanov the head, switched sides to Dimitri. June 20 Dimitri triumphantly entered Moscow, proclaimed before the king Fedor Borisovich Godunov had earlier been killed sent Dimitri, . with his mother, . and survived his sister Xenia Dimitri made his mistress and later she was tonsured,
. A few days after their arrival in Moscow Dimitri has revealed plans boyars against him. VI. Shuya was caught in the blossoming of rumors about impersonation of a new king, and gave Dimitri the court's Cathedral, consisting of clergy, the boyars and ordinary people, was sentenced to death. Dimitri replaced it with a reference Shuisky, with two brothers, in the suburbs of Galicia, and then returning them to the road, completely forgiven, returning them to the estate and Boyars. The patriarch Job was deposed, and his place was elevated Archbishop of Ryazan, Greek Ignatius, on 21 July and Dimitri crowned king. As ruler of Dimitri, on contemporary reviews, distinguished by uncommon energy, great ability, broad reformist designs and very high notion of his power. "Meaningless and the exigencies of books themselves have long tempted," says of him, Prince Khvorostinin and adds: "Autocracy above human practice to arrange". Dimitri thought to open his subjects free access to Western Europe for education, . intimacy with the foreigners, . dreamed up an alliance against Turkey from the emperor germanskogo, . kings of the French and Polish, . Venice and Moscow State, its diplomatic relations with the Pope, and Poland were sent, . mainly, . this goal and to confess to him the imperial title,
. Pope, the Jesuits and Sigismund, had counted to see Dimitri humble instrument of its policy, made a mistake in the calculation. He behaved quite independently, refused to impose Catholicism and the Jesuits, and has allowed to Marina, on arrival in Russia, externally performed rites of Orthodoxy. Quite indifferent to the differences of religions, he avoided, however, annoy people. He resolutely refused to make any land concessions to Poland, offering cash incentives to assist him. Deviations from the old customs that have become particularly common since the arrival of Marina, and the obvious partiality to foreigners Dimitri irritated some adherents among the king's old, but the masses of the people treated him kindly. Nevertheless Dimitri died victim of a conspiracy against him arranged by the boyars, with VI. Shuiski headed. Convenient excuse conspirators gave Dimitri wedding. Another 10 November 1605, Mr.. held in Krakow betrothal Dimitri, who was replaced with the ambassador from Moscow Vlasov, and May 8, 1606, Mr.. Moscow was accomplished and the marriage Dimitri and Marina.
