Nicholas & Alexandra (Romanov)
Russia's last Czar and his Czarina. Nicholas II (born 1868, ruled 1894-1917) was a great-grandson of Nicholas I and the oldest son of Alexander III. His Danish mother was a sister of Queen Alexandra of England, wife of Edward VII.
In the summer of 1914 Russia and the other great European powers became involved in World War I. It proved to be a disaster for the imperial government. There were corruption at home and defeat on the war fronts. The Russian Revolution came in 1917. Troops in St. Petersburg attacked and looted the Winter Palace. The emperor abdicated both for himself and the sickly Alexis, leaving the throne to his brother Michael, who disappeared during the uprisings and was never heard from again. The imperial family was kept under guard until they were finally sent to Siberia. There, on July 17, 1918, in the town of Ekaterinburg, Nicholas, Alexandra, and their five children were brutally murdered by the new Bolshevik rulers.
