Nicholas II - Tsar to Saint
Tony Abbott, author
Approaching the turn of the 20th Century the age of exploration was making way for a new era of scientific discovery. During this transition in Russia, the last Romanov Tsar inherited the throne in 1894 and having the opportunity for reforms and to play a leading role on the world stage, he took the country instead through wars and empowered a brutal regime which ultimately led to humiliation during World War I, the end of the monarchy and the demise of the Romanov dynasty. This is the harrowing story of the last Russian Imperial Family, modern day saints of the Russian Orthodox Church.
