Pyotr Nikiforovich Kryokshin (1684-1763) – government official of the Peter I’s era, historian, collector of handwritten documents on Russian history, one of the first biographers of Peter I (author of “Tale of Conceiving and Birth of Peter I”, “History of Russia and the Good Deeds of Emperor Peter the Great”, “Conversation about Peter I in the Underworld”, etc.). He had official access to the documents of the Cabinet of Peter I kept in the Peter and Paul Fortress, and other archives. Despite the documentary basis, P. N. Kryokshin’s works were a blend of truth and fiction. Specifically, professor of Russian history of St. Petersburg State University N. G. Ustryalov has pointed out that “he made predictions, invented speeches, fabricated facts. It’s hard to imagine that someone could lie to his contemporaries and descendants as shamelessly, as Kryokshin did”.
