Tsar Nicholas II and family

Categories: Royalty, Tragedy

The Russian Imperial Romanov family were murdered in Ekaterinburg on the 4th July 1918.

Tsar Nicholas of Russia (1868 - 1918) ruled from 1 November 1894 - 15 March 1917. WW1 led to the February Revolution in Russia in 1917. The Tsar abdicated but he and his family were imprisoned by the revolutionary government, exiled to Siberia, and murdered in July 1918.

The family were Emperor Nicholas II, his wife Empress Alexandra and their five children: Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, and Alexei.

In 1981 they were recognised as martyrs by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia. In 2000 they were canonised by the synod of the Russian Orthodox Church but not given the status of martyrs, since their deaths did not result immediately from their Christian faith.

Nicholas and Alexandra were both first cousins of King George V, who failed to help them when necessary.
