  • Czar Nicholas II
  • I am not ready to rule Russia.
  • Somebody save my son!
  • Bloody Sunday
  • The March Revolution
  • Down with the autocracy!
  • Down with the war!
  • In 1894, Nicholas II becomes the last czar of Russia and continues the rule of autocracy. When he was first appointed to be the czar, he was not ready and did not want to take the position. During his rule, he married Alexandra Feodorovna and together they had one son and four daughters.
  • Bolshevik Revolution
  • We will take over the provisional government!
  • We will fight with the Bolsheviks.
  • In 1905, workers in Russia march towards Winter Palace with a petition they came up with to improve their overall lives. At this time, the czar was not in the palace. His guards did not know how to react, and they start to fire their guns. Many innocent workers were killed and injured. Bloody Sunday was an event that had caused the start of the Russian Revolution.
  • Civil War: Red Army vs. White Army
  • We the Red Army will destroy you.
  • The White Army will win this war!
  • In March of 1917, working women living in Petrograd riot and protest for the shortages of fuel and bread. More than 200,000 people participated in the riot. The czar ordered his soldiers to control the rioters, but they end up protesting with them. Due to this revolt, Czar Nicholas II was forced to step down from the throne and the entire Romanov family was executed.
  • Joseph Stalin
  • Death solves all problems. No man, no problem.
  • Stalin is always right!
  • Shortly after a provisional government was set up after the fall of the czar, Lenin takes over with the Bolsheviks. Once Lenin was in power, he makes some major changes in Russia. Lenin also signs the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk with the Germans in 1918 and gave them a great land of Russia. Anti-Bolsheviks were upset with the changes in Russia and disagreed with the Bolsheviks. The Bolsheviks wanted to eliminate their rivals.
  • From 1918 to 1920, a civil war within Russia had occurred between the Bolsheviks (Red Army) and the Anti-Bolsheviks (White Army). The Red Army was guided by Leon Trotsky. Some supporters of the White Army wanted a czarist rule to return, or a democratic or socialistic government. Due to this war, 14 million Russian lives are lost and the Red Army easily defeats the White Army. Russia is in even greater trouble.
  • After Lenin dies in 1924, Joseph Stalin seizes power and becomes the leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). His last name, Stalin, translated to the "man of steel," and by 1928, he had total control of the Communist Party. He declared himself the dictator of the USSR with full control of everything. Stalin was a ruthless leader and often sought to violence to get what he wanted.
