Hey I was just wondering where the Russian Tsars lived circa 1400, in the Winter Palace or in the Kremlin? Thanks!?

    Neither, There was no Tsar untilm 1547 and Saint Petersburg was not founded until 1703 and the Winter Palace was not built until 1732.

    Kremlin 1400 was centuries before the Winter Palace was built.

    There was no winter palace or kremlin, they had other palaces that they lived in.

      Wrong! The current Kremlin in Moscow was built in 1480, replacing an older fortification. A tower and a fortified bridge from the older Kremlin still exists in Alexander Garden, just in front of the Trinity Tower.

    Ivan III Vasilyevich "Grand Prince" rather than a Tsar, reconstructed the Kremlin and resided there.

    The first Russian Tsar was Ivan IV, who adopted the title in 1547.

    Regarding the buildings:

    A fortified residence has existed on the site of the Kremlin since at least the 1090s, though it wasn't called "The Kremlin" until the first half of the 1300s.

    The Winter Palace was built during Peter the Great's "westernization" efforts, with construction completed in 1712.

    Which means that, by the time the first Tsars came along, the leaders of Russia had been living on the site of the Kremlin for about 400 years, and in a building named that for more than 200. They would keep doing so for another century and a half.
