Nicholas II inherited the Russian throne in October of 1894, after Alexander III (his father) died suddenly. Nicholas ruled Russia for the next 24 years. This course follows the events of the reign of Nicholas II, including the Revolution of 1905, World War I, and his abdication. Also discussed will be his relationship with his wife and family, and how they helped contribute to his decision-making and eventual downfall.
