This is a 29 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the History of Russia - The Fall of the House of Romanov. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as needed.
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, as a result 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 young 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.
