Foreword


The story of False Dmitri is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in history. The historical documents of this time period are largely untrustworthy because a great deal of literature served as propaganda. Witnesses of scandalous activity often lied or stayed silent for the sake of their own lives. Other people were tortured until they agreed to a specific account of events. I certainly do not claim to know the truth behind the mystery of the first False Dmitri, nor the full extent of the personal lives of people like Xenia Godunova or Dmitri Pozharsky. As for the possibilities, I tried to address them all with this novel while staying true to the reasonably known facts.
