Tsar Nicholas II and his Family. 100 Years On

Around this time 100 years ago today, Tsar Nicholas II, his wife, their five children, and the few servants still with them, were brutally slaughtered by Bolshevik troops. Whatever Tsar Nicholas did or did not do as Tsar, it was callous and vile, and possibly helped change international opinion regarding the Russian Civil War.
No family deserves such a fate, and I hope many today will, in spite of whatever faults they had, remember them and the good they did, because as a family man Nicholas could not have done better, in that sense he did succeed
