The "Time of Troubles" (1598-1613) was 15 years of political crisis in Russia. It began with the fall of the Rurik dynasty in 1598, and ended with the rise of the Romanov dynasty in 1613.

This period was plagued by peasant uprisings, foreign interference and multiple attempts to seize the throne. There were extreme economic and social disruptions in the central and southern regions of Russia.
