General M.A. Annenkov (1835-1899) was an important figure in the history of the Russian conquest of Turkestan in the 19th Century. He was the builder of the strategic Transcaspian Railway in its initial stages through what is now Turkmenistan, which made possible the bloody defeat of the Turkmen at Geok-Tepe in 1881. He also played a major role in the Pendjeh Crisis of 1885, when Britain and Russia nearly went to war.
