Feodor Nikitich Romanov (1553-1633) was a Russian boyar who after temporary disgrace rose to become patriarch of Moscow as Filaret, and became de-facto ruler of Russia during the reign of his son, Mikhail Feodorovich.
From 1610-1618 he was a prisoner in the hands of the Polish king, Sigismund III, whom he refused to acknowledge as tsar of Muscovy on being sent on an embassy to the Polish camp in 1610.
He was released on the conclusion of the truce of Deulino (Feb. 13, 1619), and on the 2nd of June was canonically enthroned patriarch of Moscow.
