This is the well-known ending: Nicholas and Alexandria, the last Tsar and Tsarina of Russia, were murdered, with their family, by members of the Revolution. But why? And what happened before? Find out about the Romanov family, the experiences of the peasants in Russia, and how the two worlds collided.
If you got your knowledge of this family from 20th Century Fox’s animated film Anastasia (have teens your age even seen that film? but then again there is the musical which I’m sure is closer to the film than the real story), anyway, if you have seen the movie of musical, you are in for a rude awakening. The real story of this famous family is a lot more horrific than the beginning of the movie portrays. The history of the Romanov’s is an interesting one and there are pictures to aid in the history.
