Tatarstan

Tracing its history back more than a millennium to the Volga Bolgars, the area now known as the Republic of Tatarstan came under the influence and later control of Moscow in the 16th century. Conquered by Ivan IV, the Kazan Khanate was reformed as the Kazan Governorate in the Russian Empire, where it played an important role in both the geographic expansion and economic development of the Tsar's domains.
