Alexander Nevsky was a 13th-century Russian political and military leader and strategist. He not only defended his people from the German and Swedish invaders, but also, with the help of skillful diplomacy, saved the independence of Russia from the Golden Horde.

The first major victory of Alexander over the enemies of Russia took place in 1240, when Russian troops defeated the Swedish expedition on the banks of the Neva, and brought recognition and political weight to Alexander. It was thanks to this success that he later received the nickname “Nevsky”.

The following year, Alexander had to fight off a new blow – the knights of the Teutonic Order invaded Russia. He defeated them at the head of the Novgorod army on the ice of Lake Peipus, and this glorious victory went down in history as the “Battle on the Ice”. She put an end to the plans of the Teutons to continue moving to the East and showed that Russia had become a serious military force.

The next task before Alexander was set by the Mongol Empire – the “unstoppable” Golden Horde. Here he acted as a skilled diplomat and peacemaker, maintaining Slavic unity despite the pressure of the Mongols and the proposals of the Pope Innocent IV for an alliance. Alas, his death turned out to be fatal for the union of Russian principalities, which soon broke up into smaller specific principalities. Alexander is revered as a great commander and zealot of the Orthodox faith. In 1547, he was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church under Metropolitan Macarius, and later the leaders of the state turned to his history more than once – for example, Stalin called him a “people’s hero”.
