Power point presentation #1 is entitled The History of Russia – Ancient Russia and contains 19 slides.

Early Russia was not exactly "Russia," but a collection of cities that gradually coalesced into an empire. The early history of Russia, is one of migrating peoples and ancient kingdoms. In the early part of the 9th century, a Scandinavian people known as the Varangians crossed the Baltic Sea and landed in Eastern Europe.

The leader of the Varangians was the legendary warrior Rurik, who led his people in 862 to the city of Novgorod on the Volkhov River. From Novgorod, Rurik's successor Oleg extended the power of the city southward. In 882, he gained control of Kiev, a Slavic city that had arisen along the Dnepr River around the 5th century. Oleg's attainment of rule over Kiev marked the first establishment of a unified, dynastic state in the region.

Kiev became the center of a trade route between Scandinavia and Constantinople, and Kievan Rus', as the empire came to be known, flourished for the next 300 hundred years.

Power point presentation #2 is entitled The History of Russia - The Fall of the House of Romanov and contains 29 slides.

The Romanov Dynasty also known as “The House of Romanov” was the second imperial dynasty (after the Rurik Dynasty) to rule Russia. The Romanov family reigned from 1613 until the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II on March 15, 1917, because of the Russian Revolution. The last Romanov Tsar, Nicholas II, a direct descendant of Empress Catherine the Great, ascended the throne when his father, Tsar Alexander III, died unexpectedly at the relatively youthful age of 49.

Nicholas did not want to be Emperor and was not a good leader. He made two major mistakes that lead to the family’s downfall: His son Alexei, was plagued with hemophilia which became a closely guarded state secret forcing the family to withdraw from public. To make matters worse, after a peasant monk, Rasputin, prayed for the boy he became better. The family was overjoyed and considered Rasputin to be God sent and embraced his counsel fully. Rasputin was more than likely mentally imbalanced but became a close family confident.

Nicholas II leadership in World War I was a disaster as millions lost their lives. This created unrest throughout the country which lead to the Russian Revolution and the family’s capture and execution, ending a 300 year old dynasty.
