The Tsardom of Muscovy is an Eastern European nation. It achieved independence from the Mongols in 1529 with the help of the English. It was then called the Grand Duchy of Muscovy and was called that until the Anarchy began. During that time, several people attempted to seize control, but Michael Romanov, with the help of William III of England, won and became the Tsar.
Independence from the Mongols
Muscovy became important when the Mongols attacked. Daniel I was one of the first princes to ally with the Mongols in order to raise the city to power. His son Yuriy was given the title of Grand Duke of Vladimir-Suzdal. When Tver rebelled against the Mongols, Muscovy helped put down the rebellion.
Muscovy remained loyal to the Mongols in order to continue prospering, but when the Golden Horde began to face rebellions in the south, the Muscovites also decided to rebel.
