 Paul I of Russia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Paul I of Russia (Russian: Pavel Petrovich, Павел I Петрович) (October 1, 1754 - March 23, 1801) was an Emperor (Tsar) of Russia (1796 - 1801).
Paul was born in the Summer Palace at St Petersburg.
A common unresearched view of Paul I is that he was mad, had a mistress, his acceptance of the office of Grand Master of the Order of St. John furthered his delusions, and that these eccentricities and his unpredictability in other areas led to his assassination.

Paul was born in 1963 in New York City, attended St. Bernard's School, Exeter Academy and the University of California “ Berkeley; he received his doctorate from the London School of Economics with a thesis on his hero, the great Russian reformist Prime Minister Piotr Stolypin, who was murdered in 1911(?).
Paul always said he felt he was one of the Russians and joked that he even walked the way the Russians did.
Paul keenly felt the suffering of ordinary Russian people, remarking how he would see men weep with despair in the subway at the end of a working day, and wondering how they managed to survive.

 Headlines & Bottom Line
Paul represented the Russia that could be —the one he believed in - and his death is a grim reminder of the Russia that is today.
Paul is receiving apt recognition for his exceptional work as journalist, writer, and warrior for the truth.
I hope that part of Paul’s legacy will be to provoke the Russian government to recognize that it is not acceptable to allow gangsters to kill with impunity and that it is in Russia’s best long-term interest to enforce the rule of law and guard freedom of expression.

While absent from history annals, this very different view of Tsar Paul is supported by the crowds who attended his funeral as well as the 50th anniversary of his tragic death, and by the fresh flowers and burning candles which, until the Revolution, were always found by his grave in the Sts.
At an early age Paul is described as being sincerely religious, of an excellent and upright character; he was a voracious reader, had a remarkable memory, and was gifted with an aptitude for science and languages.
On their return to Russia, the Grand Ducal couple settled at Gatchina, a large and flourishing estate which Paul rather sensibly viewed "as a miniature version of the Empire he one day would rule, a mini-kingdom in which to test his ideas about government, economy, and reform....

 National Catholic Reporter: The perils of accomodation: Russia and John Paul II   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
The great irony of John Paul's "Russia policy," according to observers here, is that the pope who began by rejecting John XXIII's and Paul VI's Ostpolitik--a policy of softening tensions with the Soviets, which a young Karol Wojtyla saw as lacking nerve--is today recycling that Ostpolitik in an ecumenical key.
There is a consensus that John Paul has gone to extraordinary lengths to advance relations with the Russian Orthodox, whose doctrinal and liturgical traditions he obviously reveres--so much so, in fact, that some Catholics fear the local church is being sacrificed in the bargain.
Protestantism in Russia is growing by leaps and bounds, they say, while the Catholic church sits on the sidelines for the sake of a murky ecumenical moment that never seems to arrive.

Paul's two books--Godfather of the Kremlin: The Decline of Russia in the Age of Gangster Capitalism, a biography of now-exiled billionaire oligarch Boris Berezovsky, and Conversation with a Barbarian (published in Russian, not English), concerning organized crime and Russia's war in Chechnya--are examples of the dangerous digging and reporting in which he engaged.
As Paul made clear at Forbes Russia's launch, he thought that Russia, despite setbacks, was entering an era in which a lawful, innovative, opportunity-enhancing, free-enterprise kind of capitalism was beginning to emerge.

McCartney and his wife, Heather Mills, attended a ceremony Thursday at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, Russia's oldest musical institution, where the 60-year-old singer-composer was named an honorary professor.
Despite the conservatory's high-culture aura — luminaries such as Dmitri Shostakovich studied and taught there — the audience greeted McCartney with applause as loud and long as any pop star could want.
