Book Summary

Nicholas II, the last czar of Russia, was crowned ruler of one-sixth of the earth's surface in 1896.  He ended his life under armed guard in a small house in Ekaternburg, where on the night of 17 July 1918, along with his wife Alexandra, their children and their servants, he was shot by the Bolsheviks.

This magnificent volume draws on a wealth of previously unpublished material to tell the tragic story of the last of the Romanovs as it has never been told before.  With more than 630 irreplaceable works of art, costumes, photographs, and private and state documents, and drawing from Nicholas and Alexandra's own personal letters and diaries, it reveals their luxurious world and loving family life--and the horror of their final years--in moving and compelling detail.
