Tsar Nicholas ll of Russia. Nicholas II – (The Romanov dynasty) is remembered because of his poor ability to govern Russia. The decisions of the Tsar provoked the Russian Revolution of 1905. The Tsar Nicholas II's ignorance led to 'Bloody Sunday'. The events of bloody Sunday resulted in resentment for the Tsarist government, the articulation of revolutionary ideas, and the influence of leadership on revolutionary movements.
Alexandra, empress of Nicholas II, was very unpopular in Russia but had a very happy marriage. Her son had hemophilia and a man named Rasputin used this to manipulate her. Her and her immediate family were later killed during the Russian Revolution.
On becoming, at 26, the 18th in the Romanov line to rule Russia since 1613, Nicholas immediately took as his czarina Alexandra, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria. He proved a better husband than monarch. Comfortable only with his family and inner court, Nicholas was easily swayed by advisers like the semiliterate faith healer Rasputin. Isolated from his subjects, he had no grasp of the vast unrest that would lead to the Russian Revolution - and to the violent end of the Romanov succession.
