For your consideration is a rare and important. 1840 Imperial Russian signed and sealed Emperor / Tsar Nicholas I of Russia military manuscript document / order / commission / appointment / decree / edict / letter, with original imperial Russian wax stamp.Nicholas I Russian: I , tr. Nikolay I Pavlovich; 6 July O. 25 June 1796 2 March O. 18 February 1855 reigned as Emperor of Russia from 1825 until 1855. He was also the King of Poland and Grand Duke of Finland.
He has become best known for having been a reactionary whose controversial reign was marked by geographical expansion, economic growth and massive industrialisation on the one hand, and centralisation of administrative policies and repression of dissent on the other. Nicholas had a happy marriage that produced a large family; all of their seven children survived childhood.Riasanovsky said that Nicholas displayed determination, singleness of purpose, and an iron will, along with a powerful sense of duty and a dedication to very hard work. He saw himself as a soldiera junior officer totally consumed by spit and polish. A handsome man, he was highly nervous and aggressive. Trained as an engineer, he was a stickler for minute detail. In his public persona, stated Riasanovsky, Nicholas I came to represent autocracy personified: infinitely majestic, determined and powerful, hard as stone, and relentless as fate.
He was the younger brother of his predecessor, Alexander I. Nicholas inherited his brother's throne despite the failed Decembrist revolt against him and went on to become the most reactionary of all Russian leaders.
Nicholas I was instrumental in helping to create an independent Greek state, and resumed the Russian conquest of the Caucasus by seizing Idr Province and the remainder of modern-day Armenia and Azerbaijan from Qajar Persia during the Russo-Persian War of 18261828. He ended the Russo-Turkish War of 18281829 successfully as well.
Later on, however, he led Russia into the Crimean War (18531856), with disastrous results. Historians emphasize that his micromanagement of the armies hindered his generals, as did his misguided strategy.
Fuller notes that historians have frequently concluded that the reign of Nicholas I was a catastrophic failure in both domestic and foreign policy. On the eve of his death, the Russian Empire reached its geographical zenith, spanning over 20 million square kilometers (7.7 million square miles), but had a desperate need for reform.
