• The formation of statehood in Yakutia

    Local toyons fairly quickly entered the system of centralized power. In 1677, after 40 years since the beginning of the construction of Yakutsk, the first large Yakut embassy headed by the grandson of Tygyn, Mazary Bozekov, went to the tsar to Moscow. The most prominent toyons of the local clans bowed to Fyodor III Alekseevich, the elder brother of Peter I. The ambassadors achieved great preferences for the Yakut people.
