Stolypin served as Chairman of the Council of Ministers under Emperor Nicholas II in Russia between 1906 and 1911.
He is widely known for his agrarian reforms and his push for changing Russia’s electoral legislation.
Stolypin also dissolved the Second State Duma in 1907 in a move that put an end to the 1905 Russian Revolution.
