This week, on the Russian History Podcast, we cover the events of the late 16th century, touching on Sweden's tenous grip over it's new province of Finland, whilst back in Russia, we look at the succession crisis that is brewing as a result of Feodor, and by extension, the house of Rurik, not having a legitimate male heir should Feodor die without issue. Spoiler, Feodor dies without issue.
