Transcript of The Family Romanov

The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion, & The Fall of Imperial Russian
Growing up with a Tsar as a father, Nicholas was treated as though he'd never rise to power, therefore he was never trained to be a reputable ruler. This set a poor foundation for his ruling. After marrying Alexandra, a princess from Germany, Nicholas decided to ignore any of Russia's issues and move away from the problems. This caused conflict to arise without anyone there to resolve it. Nicholas had many failed attempts to "solve" the revolution, including killing his own men, losing all the faith from his country. Without patriotism, the Romanovs were exiled, incarcerated, and ultimately executed.

The author is limited on the information know, since she does not know the thoughts and feelings of the characters. Having their story told in the third person allows the reader to get a "full picture" view instead of being persuaded to be biased towards a specific side.
"From then on SDs who followed Lenin were Bolsheviks. Those who disaggreed were Mensheviks. But all were communists, intent on creating-in one wat or another-a completely, and classless society."
