Tsar Nicholas 2nd

The path to the downfall of the tsar in February 1917.

eventimpact on people
1905 Revolution. Tsar orders Cossacks to shoot peaceful protestors, killing 130. This sparked strikes and riots leading to the formation of soviets. This also forced the Tsar to set up the Duma.
1907. Rasputin becomes the royal advisor when he is called to court and is able to stop Aleksei from bleeding to death. Rasputin is of peasant birth and so the Upper Classes are outraged that they have to take orders from a peasant. Movement up through the class brackets was unheard of.
Countryside Reforms. A new system in which rich land owners bought small pieces of peasant owned land to form larger farms which would be more productive. This led to a group of super poor peasants who drifted from villages to cities.
Industrial Revolution. A huge industrial boom in iron and coal led to the growth of large factories in cities. The owners of the new factories contributed largely to a growth in the Middle Class.
War. Poor food production as many peasants left the countryside and moved to cities. Fewer household goods being produced as factory production switched to the war effort. Inflation arose from too much money chasing too few goods, meaning many couldn't afford food or fuel.
War. The Tsar failed to make necessary changes such as the introduction of a Constitutional Monarchy, which would have made Russia much more stable. Nicholas lost support from the politicians in the Duma, and left himself vulnerable.
26/02/1917. Troops in Petrograd are ordered to fire on demonstrators, following orders from the Tsar to 'put down the disorder'. Many troops refused and mutinied the Petrograd barracks, takig their weapons with them to join the protestors.
28/02/1917. The Tsar's train is hijacked and he is forced to abdicate. This provides the chance for a new government that will support the common people of Russia.
