My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is very handy to know about Ivan IV also known as Ivan the Terrible. Ivan's grand father managed to free Russia from the Mongol horde. When Ivan was 3 years old he became the Grand Prince of Moscow.
Though he became the King at very young age, the country was ruled his regents. He was made to starve by them. After attaining the rightful age Ivan punished those who tortured him.
Much information is provided how Ivan came to known as Ivan the Terrible.
A good book recommended for history buffs.
