Ivan the Terrible

My name is Ivan and in Mexico sometimes when I introduce myself they ask something like: "Oh so you are like Ivan the Terrible" and I was always concerned who was this person and here it is:

Ivan the terrible, was the Grand Prince of Moscow from 1533 to 1547 and Tsar of all Russias from 1547 until his death. His long reign saw the conquest of the Khanates of Kazan, Astrakhan, and Siberia, transforming Russia into a multiethnic state, spanning almost one billion acres, approximately 4,046,856 km2 (1,562,500 sq mi).

Historic sources present disparate accounts of Ivan's complex personality: he was described as intelligent and devout, yet given to rages and prone to episodic outbreaks of mental illness. In one such outburst he beat and without forethought killed his groomed and chosen heir Ivan Ivanovich. This left the Tsardom to be passed to Ivan's younger son, the weak and intellectually disabled Feodor Ivanovich.

But anyway, I'm not like him. He was too crazy. xD
