  • World War I
  • In the late 1800s Russia and Japan competed for control of Korea and Manchuria. They both signed a series of agreements over the territories. Russia broke them, and Japan retaliated by attacking russia. The repeated losses led to a revolt in the midst of war.
  • The Czar Steps Down During The March Revolution
  • On January 22, 1905 about 200,000 workers approached the Winter palace. Carrying a petition with a list of demands for the Czar. In return the Czar's generals ordered the soldiers to fire into the crowd, killing hundreds and wounding thousands. This provoked a wave of strikes and violence across the country.
  • Nicholas II made the fateful decision to put russia in WWI. Russia wasn't prepared to handle the costs, and suffered terrible losses. As in the Russo-Japanese war, Russia's involvement in WWI showed how weak the Czar's rule and leadership was.
