Rasputin was born in un-industrialized Siberia in 1869 to a financially-stable family. Once he was twenty years old, Rasputin married a woman named Praskovya and had one son and two daughters with her. Rasputin worked as a healer and rose to fame for healer the Czar's child, which helped him grow close with the royal family. This close bond with the family enabled Rasputin to heavily influence the decisions that the Czar and his wife made on state affairs. As he had several enemies, Rasputin was shot and killed by Prince Yusopov on December 17, 1916. Rasputin is obviously compatible with Czar Nicholas II since he was able to heal the Czar's hemophilic son.
