On April 30, 2008, two skeletal remains found near Yekaterinburg, Russia are confirmed by Russian scientists to be the remains of Alexei and Anastasia, two of the children of the last Tsar of Russia, whose entire family was executed at Yekaterinburg by the Bolsheviks. Their death marked the end of a ruling dynasty that had lasted centuries. Robert K. Massie’s Nicholas and Alexandra examines the stories of Alexei and Anastasia’s parents. In particular, he examines their faults that came at the wrong time for Russia and the world. Where their political ineptitude and religious ferocity failed themselves and their country.
