The insane Protopopov, Minister of the Interior, seized upon the death of Rasputin to increase his influence and consolidate his position with the Tsarina.

A granddaughter of Queen Victoria of the United KingdomAlexandra was, like her grandmother, one of the most famous royal carriers of the haemophilia disease. Her reputation for encouraging her husband's resistance to the surrender of autocratic authority and her known faith in the Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin severely damaged her popularity and that of the Romanov monarchy in its final years.
A fairytale match, the story of Nicholas II and Alexandra is one of love and strife. Constantly embroiled in familial and social politics, the couple remained in love until their tragic end exactly years ago. Despite their young age, it was love at first sight for both.
