Grigori Rasputin


Russian mystic and advisor to Czar Nicholas II’s wife Alexandra Fedorovna. The Russian people frequently blamed him for Russia’s misfortunes at the start from the 20th hundred years and several historians believe he performed a significant function in raising the Tsar’s unpopularity, which result in the Feb Trend of 1917. He was signed up for the Verkhoturye Monastery, but hardly ever completed his schooling. He was regarded as able to treat the hemophilia of Alexei, the kid from the Tsar of Russia. His little girl Maria Rasputin became a memoir article writer. The events from the Feb Revolution set in place Vladimir Lenin’s rise to power as well as the establishment from the Soviet Union.

1 Has four children: Dimitri, Matryona, Maria and Varvara.
2 Brother of Maria and older brother named Dmitri.
3 Father, Efim, mother, Anna.
4 He was reputed to have been dispeptic, which could account for why poisoning didn't work on him.
5 He was initially poisoned with cyanide. Then he was stabbed and shot several times. Believing he was dead, his assassins bound him, wrapped him in a cloth and submerged his body in the freezing waters of the Neva River. When his body was finally found it seemed that he had miraculously struggled to free himself of his bonds - which means that he had finally died of drowning. No police investigation into the assassination was ever conducted.
