    Do your own homework. Yahoo! Answers was not produced to have a cheat-sheet from their users. You have a textbook for a reason: It's there so you can learn and if not lazy, to study. Then you could of figured out your question all by yourself. You can't relay on the people on the Internet, because some cases they won't answer. And there you will be, alone and regretful. Get used to studing now; to be less lazy in the furture, and to have good education. You can thank me later.

    Duh, I'm extremely nice, so this ONE time, I'll give you some facts. But do NOT get used to it.

    The two Ivans were amongst a series of Russian rulers battling for their Christian kingdoms, and against muslim invaders. They weren't always successful since they were constantly being attacked by western kingdoms like Sweden and Lithuania, and by muslim khanates from the south and east. They were also threatened by their own greedy friends and relatives.

    Look up "Ivan" in Wikipedia - they're all listed there:

    Sorry if this offended you, I mean the first part. I just... well I have a friend and she always cheated on her homework, and look where's she got to: No husband, no children, alone, worthless job.

    I just don't want to see anyone suffer like her. So, I was trying to help you.
