Konstantin Pobedonostsev
« on: April 25, 2011, 05:28:31 AM »
I wonder about his role in the politics of Alexander III. and Nicholas II.
I know, that he had an important role during Alexander III. and I also read, that during the first years of his reign,  Pobedonostsev was highly appreciated by the Dowager Empress and he could keep his influence on the young Tsar but later on was dismissed.

Overall, how would you consider his influence on this era? I found somewhere, that for example Tolstoy formed Anna Karenina's narrow-minded, hypocrite husband after P. but also read that as for Dostoevski, he quite liked Pobedonostsev (not sure though...even forgot where did I read that).

Can we possibly say, that in this era, there was a "slavophile renaissance" and P. was it's flag-bearer?
Was he dismissed at the end or retired?
