Ivan Groznyy II: Boyarsky zagovor

But as the widower
I shall keep
the widower's portion

the towns along our borders.
From there

I will watch over the security
of the State

and guard the integrity of
Russian frontiers

And I shall stamp out treason!
I have no confidence
in you boyars

Therefore as God created man
in his own image

so I have created men in mine.
They will carry out my orders

and only they will enjoy
my confidence

that is why I have christened
them Oprichniki

These plans come not from God
but from the devil
He who defies
ancestral traditions

shall not remain sovereign
for long

Fyodor Kolychev!
Say no more
