Nicholas II, the last tsar of Russia, never really learned how to be a tsar and never really wanted to be one either. While he preferred to hang out with his little family, his wife, four daughters, and hemophiliac son, rebellion was starting among the common workers of Russia. The Family Romanov discusses Nicholas’s reign, Lenin and the Bolshevik Revolution, the Romanov family, and the end of Imperial Russia. Scattered throughout the book are writings by regular Russians showing what life was like under Tsar Nicholas. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the events of that time period.
