Since the reign of Ivan the Terrible, the Russian Tsars had followed a fairly consistent policy of drawing more political power away from the nobility and into their own hands. This centralization of had been accomplished in two ways: Either by simply taking power from the nobles and braving their opposition or by compensating the nobles for decreased power in government and then giving them greater power over their land and its occupants.
From Ivan the Terrible, to Catherine the Great, the Russian Tsars enjoyed virtually autocratic rule over their nobles. things only got worse under the reign of Nicholas who eventually abdicated as Russia formed weal provisional government.
During the struggle for power the Bolsheviks gained increasing support from the ever more frustrated soviets. On October 25, led by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, they stormed the Winter Palace and deposed the Kerensky government.
They succeeded in taking Russia out of the war, though on very unfavorable terms. Within months civil war broke out throughout Russia and for the next 3 years the country was devastated by civil strife. By 1920 the Bolsheviks had finally emerged victorious.
