The first third of the 19th century is a chronological period of time when one can speak of Bey-Bulat Taymiev, if not as a ruler, then unequivocally as the leader of the Chechen people who had indisputable authority, the leader of all social and political processes and fateful events to take place in Chechnya. Bey-Bulat Taymiev was from the village of Mayrtup. He was born in 1779 and was highly respected by his people. The first third of the 19th century was the period of his military and political activities. Bey-Bulat Taymiev was an educated person. The North Caucasus was a territory where the interests of the three leading powers of Iran, Turkey and Russia collided. Towards the late 18th century, a generally peaceful period of Russian-Caucasian relations was in place. Russia established itself in the North Caucasus by signing agreements with Ossetia when the Vladikavkaz fortress was built, the Dagestani feudal lords, plain Chechnya, Ingushetia signed a number of agreements, and the North Caucasians calmly looked at how the Caucasian military line was being built along the rivers. It was a peaceful expansion of Russia in the Caucasus. As for further actions and events following the annexation of Georgia to Russia, Chechnya, Dagestan and Kabarda became an internal territory between Georgia and Russia. Naturally, at any cost, Russia intended not to concede these territories to anyone. During this period, Bey-Bulat Taymiev, a politician and military leader, put forth all his exertions to prevent the subsequent hostilities.
