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. of The Holy Bible And Cross

MR CARSON: Why don’t you stay and have something to eat?

ETHEL: Mr Branson’s been telling us the news from Russia.

MR CARSON: And what news is that?

BRANSON: Kerensky’s been made Prime Minister, but he won’t go far enough for me. Lenin denounces the bourgeoisie along with the tsar. He wants a people’s revolution. That’s what I’m waiting for. Won’t be long now.

MR CARSON: And what happened to the tsar?

BRANSON: Imprisoned in the Alexander Palace with all his family.

MRS PATMORE: Oh, what a dreadful thing.

BRANSON: They won’t hurt them. Why would they?

ANNA: To make an example.

BRANSON: Give them some credit. This is a new dawn, a new age of government. No one wants to start it with the murder of a bunch of young girls.
