Rasputin - Nicholas II Abdicates

After the Tsar abdicates, he is treated without dignity by soldiers who swarm the imperial palace.  Life for the Romanovs, as they had once known it, is over.

In the privacy of his room, with Alexandra, Nicholas breaks down.  Romanov relatives who cannot escape are shot and killed.

The royal family is ultimately sent to the Ipatiev House in Siberia.  It will be their last home.
