The Exucution of the Romanov Family
Fleming(The author of my book) explains that, Tsar Nicholas(The ruler of The Russian federation) and his family were placed under house arrest after Nicholas had been abdicated in March of 1917 for not effectively controlling the Russian protest that had been going on for a while. The Reason for the riots and the anger against the royal family were for a many different spread of reasons. One reason being that four out of five Russians were peasants and the only "upper class" citizens were the Government and the royal family. On a late summer night on July 17 1918, The family had been awaken,and told there was was violence in Yekaterinburg(The city the romanovs lived in).The royal family, children and all were sent to the basement of the house. Earlier that night the Communist boshliviks party had sentenced the royal family to death, including Anasatsia and Alexi. The Romanovs were then told they were going to take a picture, but soon after boslivik soldiers Burst through the door shot the whole family, Those who survived the gunshot were stabbed with bayonets. After the Romonov Exicution many conspiracy theories broke out about what happened that night. Some believe that Anastasia escaped and survived, and many people all over the world have claimed to be Anastasia( All of them being fake).
