Peter the Great ruled Russia from 1682–1725 and in that time brought about many changes to Russian culture, altering the orthodox traditions that had been observed since the fall of the Byzantine Empire.The three major social classes present during these reforms experienced changes in varying degrees according to their proximity to the tsar and urban settings where reforms could be more strictly enforced.
After 1731, property rights were expanded to include inheritance in land property.
The law mandated that if a man was survived by unmarried daughters, the eldest girl would inherit his estate, while the remaining sisters would divide his movable property.
His married daughters would receive nothing, however, since they would have received dowries at the time they married.
The law was supposed to help the tax revenue for Russia by banning the allowance of noble families to divide their land and wealth among multiple children.
This law effectively ended the practice of excluding women from inheriting patrimonial estates.
The Petrine reforms of this century allowed for more female participation in society, when before they were merely an afterthought as wives and mothers.
