Abstract


P. A. TOLSTOY: THE LIFE OF A RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR IN ISTANBUL IN A HISTORICAL –FICTIONAL CONTEXT (1702-1714)
The correspondence of Russian diplomats-ambassadors (’’stateynıye spiski’’) and the notes of travelers, who were in search of new territories, give place not only to sacred places and relics of Christianity, but also to impressions about Istanbul. With the political and commercial relations between Russia and Turkey getting stronger in the 18th century, Petro the Great had to assign an experienced diplomat, who would be in good terms with the Ottoman administrators. Petr Andreyevich Tolstoy, chosen by the tsar, performs his missions successfully between 1702-1714 in Turkey. The 12 years period with highly intense relations and difficulties becomes the centre of attention for Russian historians and writers. In our study, the time that Petr Andreeviç Tolstoy spent in Ottoman fields and in Istanbul are studied, depending on the reports of the ambassadors in state archives, the historical-fictional work of investigator N. Pavlenko “Vokrug Trona. Ptentsi gnezda Petrova. Strasti u trona” and the historical novel of Y. Fedorov “Poruçaet Rossiya”
