autocracy
where the Tsar’s powers were not shared or limited.

• The Tsar’s autocratic powers were believed to have been
granted by God
. They were implemented through an intertwined system of
government and bureaucracy
, enforced by strict
police oppression
and legitimised by the
Orthodox Church
.

• Tsar Nicholas II was a reluctant leader who began his rule in 1896 after the unexpected death of his dominating father, Alexander III, continuing the Romanov Dynasty begun in 1613 by Michael Romanov.

• The
social system
featured the
privilege
of the upper classes and the
exploitation
of the urban industrial workers and rural peasants.

reforms
