The House of Romanov was the second and last imperial dynasty to rule over Russia for more than three hundred years, reigning from 1613 until the 1917 overthrow of the monarchy during the February Revolution. The Romanov Dynasty succeeded the Rurik Dynasty after the Time of Troubles. This 300-year chapter saw so many achievements, failures, happy and joyous moments, and sorrowful tragedies.
