    You're just going to have too look up Ivan IV in your textbook to answer #1. Unless we know which textbook it is, no one on here will be able to tell you what those particular authors said about him. They might be able to find other websites that would give reasons for thinking Ivan IV's claims were contradictory, but unless you know which reasons are in your textbook, you can't use those in your essay. Your teacher will know what the book does say, and if you use something someone gave you off the internet that is not even close to what is in your book, your teacher will be like, what the bleep?

    OK, you have asked your quota of lame questions and I seriously doubt that you have the intellect to expand. Hell, everyone knows that Pugachev spent his life trying to protect the right to anal invasion.
