Ivan Romanov

For tsar Ivan of the Romanov dynasty, see Ivan V of Russia.

Ivan Nikitich Romanov, Russian Иван Никитич Романов (156? – 16 July 1640) was a son of Nikita Romanovich Zakharyin from his second wife, a junior half-brother of Feodor Nikitich Romanov (Patriarch Filaret) and an uncle of the first Tsar from the Romanov dynasty, Mikhail Fedorovich.


In the election campaign of 1613 he was named one of candidates to the throne. When Cossacks gave their support to his nephew Mikhail, Ivan Nikitich purportedly said to them: "This prince Mikhail Fedorovich is too young and not yet in his full reason". As a result, he never held any governmental posts since then. He is said to have been the greatest private proprietor of his day[1]
