Razin, Stenka. Stenka Razin (1630-1671) was a Cossack leader who warred on Muscovites and Persians. In 1908 he was the hero of the Russian creator Vladimir Romashkov-directed film Stenka Razin.

The movie somewhat softened the blood-soaked, murderous rebel leader, although Razin is still shown throwing his Persian mistress into the Volga river when he receives a letter implying her infidelity. Razin appeared in an eponymous 1914 film which made him more bloodthirsty.
