Tsar Peter the Great

Tsar Peter the Great, Emperor of Russia, arrives at Gedesby Inn late at night. He throws the innkeeper, Jens Pedersen, and his wife out of their bed so he can sleep in it. Jens Pedersen and his wife are our 8th great grandparents. Next day the Tsar heads to Nykøbing Falster where he eats in what later became known as "Czarens Hus" (House of the Tsar) before eventually ending up in Copenhagen for meetings with the Danish king.
