By the time he died in 1725, Russia was considered a leading Eastern European state. Peter the Great reigned as Emperor of all Russia from 1721-1725. In 1721, he proclaimed Russia an Empire. He centralized government, created an army and navy, subjugated the Church to the state, introduced new territorial divisions of the country and nurtured the advancement of science. Peter the Great married twice and fathered 11 children. He is buried in the Cathedral of the St Peter and St Paul Fortress in St Petersburg.
