The populace expected that on the death of Alexander, his liberal-minded brother Constantine Pavlovich would ascend the throne in accordance with house law.

The second novel, focusing on Alexander Griboedov's last days, was published in 1929 and was by far his most successful project.
This "scientific" novel reveals an analogy between the reigns of Nikolai I and Stalin, and it incorporates a great deal of auto-referential material, especially concerning the compromise both Griboedov and Tynianov made with repressive political regimes.
By contrast, the novel Pushkin, which Tynianov had been writing for ten years but left unfinished at the time of his death in 1943, is the least experimental of his works.

In 1829, the poet Alexander Griboedov, Russia's ambassador to Teheran, gave sanctuary to several Armenians who had fled the Shah of Persia's harem.
When the Shah learned of the "defections", he ordered Griboedov to return the runaways but the ambassador refused, knowing that such a move would condemn the Armenians to death.
Bilateral historical ties as well as cultural and religious similarities are too strong and it seems likely that Armenia will retain its status as a privileged ally for many years to come.

The popularity of Mushtaidi was not left unnoticed by General Alexander Paskevich, the Chief Governor of the Caucasus, who was conquering the Caucasus with sword and fire, joining it bit-by-bit to the Russian Empire.
Mushtaidi managed to drive away Abaz-Mirza, the Iranian prince and the ruler of southern Azerbaijan, and Alajar-Khan, the Tevrizian commander, and was instrumental in annexing this region to Russia.

After the assassination of the czar-liberator Alexander II in 1881, the boundaries of self-government were tightened and liberties cut back, again, very much like the change that followed the transfer of power from Yeltsin to Putin.
This being Russia, he is not quite a "private" eye: employed by the Moscow police and later, as an "official for special assignments" (chinovnik po osobym porucheniyam), by the Moscow governor general, he is more like Simenon's Commissaire Maigret.
Fandorin attempts to put into practice a radical--for Russia--idea first articulated by Chatskiy, the hero of Alexander Griboedov's classic 1820s play Gore ot Uma (translated as "Woe from Intelligence"): "To serve the cause, not the individuals" (sluzhit delu, a ne litsam) and to "serve" (sluzhit') but not be "subservient" (prisluzhivat').
