Nicholas II of Russia and his family

The last emperor of Russia, Nicholas II and his family. His wife Alexandra Feodorovna whom he married in November 1894 and his children Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia and Aleksey. Nicholas II ruled the Russian empire from 1894 til 1917 when he abdicated following the February Revolution. The whole family including the family's doctor, cook and chambermaid were killed in the same room in the night on 16/17th July 1917 by the Bolsheviks.
The card was sent to me by Maya (Makovka) for the Postcrossing Favourites Tag.
