The Russian Empire is the largest country in the world and one of the largest empires in history, stretching from eastern Europe to the Pacific ocean. It is bordered to the southwest by Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Rumania; to the northwest by the Baltic Sea and Sweden; to the north by the Arctic Sea; to the southeast by Korea, Japan, and China; and to the south by India, Afghanistan, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire.
Russia is one of the few absolute monarchies left in Europe, and has been ruled by the House of Romanov since 1613. Over time the kingdom has absorbed most of its smaller neighbours, such as Finland and Poland. The Tsar in 1891 was Alexander III.
