Nicholas II was the last emperor of Russia ruling from November 1st, 1894 until his forced abdication on March 15th 1917. Peasants demanded food from him which led to the Czar's police force firing into the open crowd. This event was later called "Bloody Sunday". The citizens lost all faith in their Czar after he failed to provide for his people, and he got people killed during the war. He was eventually abdicated to give way to new government.

The Bolsheviks, also known as the "red army", gave their selves the name because they wanted to portray strength in spite of their smallness. Bolsheviks were considered radical socialists who wanted to force communism on the country. The Mensheviks, also known as the "white army", were moderate socialists who wanted gradual change. They opposed the extreme views of the Bolsheviks. A fight ensued between them, and in 1922 the Bolsheviks won the civil war.
