I would like to suggest that I, Admiral Kolchak, be named hero for all Russia.
If I had been successful Russia would have been democratic in the 1920s. Even so, I have a beer named for me. Does Nevsky have that claim?

in 1240, Alexander became "Nevsky" after his victory over the Swedes  along the Neva river in 1240.  Then in 1703, Peter the Great founded his new capital in the swamp lands along the Neva River. Nevsky started it all and deserves to be the face of Russia! :)
