    Murder of Romanov Royal Family
    The Romanov Family ruled in Russia from 1613-1917. The family included the father, Nicholas II Romanov, his wife Alexandra and their 5 children. Nicholas II was not a well-respected ruler and was opposed by the working class. Revolts broke out and Nicholas was forced to resign as Tsar which caused fear in his family's safety. On July 17, the family was told to wait in a basement to be escorted to a safer place. The family was killed by the "guard", and buried. Who gave the order is still argued.
