Peace of Stolbovo, February 1617

The Peace of Stolbovo ended the Swedish-Russian War of 1613-1617. The treaty effectively recognised the status quo at the end of the fighting. Gustav Adolf of Sweden regained Ingria and Kexholm, denying Moscow access to the Baltic. Ingria and Kexholm had only recently been conquered by Moscow, during the Swedish-Muscovite War of 1590-95. In return Novgorod was returned to Russia. The Peace of Stolbovo allowed Tsar Michael Romanov, the first of his dynasty, to concentrate of the threat from Poland (Polish-Muscovite War, 1609-19).
