This year marks 400 years since the start of the Romanov dynasty's rule in Russia.
What is your favourite monarch from that dynasty? OR - Who is your favourite monarch of Russia overall (a Great Prince, a Tsar, an Emperor) across the 862 - 1917 period ?

Personally for me, it is either Alexander I (reigning 1801-1825) or maybe Peter II (reigning 1727-1730).

I may not know much about Russian monarchy, but...

Alexander II. He could have implemented a constitution. The history of Russia would have been completely different if not for his assassination by those pesky Soviets.

Yes I understand. Thanks for that. One may like him or not but the fact seems to be he made a significant contribution to Russian history and made his mark and quite possibly, has played quite a part in contributing to Russia's might too. Yet he would not be my personal first choice to be honest.

Thanks. Oh yes, Alexander II would be one of my personal choices.
A good reformer, a liberal Emperor - one could even say, achieved quite a bit in this sense within the limitations of his era, seemed to be rather progressive and forward thinking, at least for his time at any rate... Sadly, his end was a cruel and disturbing one. Still.. history and the future will probably estimate and honour him appropriately.

I would say for me, it is Alexander I (both historical significance / political views and personal considerations). Or possibly, Peter II (but that would be out of personal considerations only). I would go for the first one overall.

Quite correct. In 1703 if I am not mistaken.
