In this episode Lucy Worsley explores the complicated history of the Russian Revolution. She dresses up as Tsarina Alexandra.
Worsley kicks off this episode with the start of World War I and the Russians were suffering. The October Revolution is more complicated than what you originally thought. The Revolution was fueled by the growing anger towards the Romanovs because of the bloody suppression he took part in. Alexandra was mistrusted by the Court, as well as the complicated relationships between the royal families of Europe.
She also covers Rasputin and the gossip that surrounded him, and how the Tsar and Tsarina's relationship with him made the Russian people distrust the family. One of the historians discussed the rumors that surrounded him and Alexandra and concluded there was no affair between them.
Also factoring into the Russian Revolution was how the War turned against the Russians and the key to the Russian Revolution were the Women.
