Star Media and Babich Design proudly present a spectacular new docudrama commemorating the 400th anniversary of the foundation of the Russian Imperial dynasty. The election of sixteen-year-old Mikhail I Fyodorovich Romanov to the Russian throne in 1613 marked the beginning of a dynasty which was to rule Russia and, from 1721, the Russian Empire for over 300 years. The Romanov dynasty played a hugely important role in world history, and the docudrama shows the life stories and characters of the tsars, recounting their rise to power and their contribution to the dynasty, their merits and their faults, their achievements and mistakes, their victories and defeats in war.
