Settling the Score: Peter the Great

Upon further review, Peter the Great's Jewish ancestor is possible... but not clear. The Slavic Encyclopedia calls him a Crimean Tatar, not a Karaite. And all the Karaite sources seem to be a copy-and-paste of the same text, with no accreditation. So switching to "Not a Jew", until further notice. Thanks, anon poster!
