In the summer of 1553, Ivan proposed a pilgrimage to Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery, near the present-day village of Kirillov. While on the Sora River, the royal boat was hit by a wave, it overturned and the Tsesarevich was dropped by his wet nurse. The adults managed to escape, but by the time they got to the baby, Dmitri had drowned. “The Chronicle” records that Maximus the Greek, who had recently visited Ivan, foresaw the death of the Tsesarevich. According to Andrey Kurbsky, Maximus had told Ivan that “he should not go such a long way with his wife and newborn lad”.
