While ruling, Tsar Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra believed in autocracy. They were also sure that the right to rule was given by God. However, the industrialization grew and a corrupt system must be put in the appropriate place preventing the downfall of this dynasty. The problems with peasantry were added and the tsarist regime was neglected to provide reforms and poor tips of the uncultured and illiterate man. In this situation the revolution was inevitable. Tsar Nicholas II with his wife Alexandra were at the beginning of the downfall of the Romanov dynasty what led to the Revolution in Russia on 1917.
Unfortunately, Tsar Nicholas II couldn’t deal with the tasks which belonged for him as for the independent ruler of a vast empire. His father died in October 1894 and after it Nicholas II said that he was not ready to become a tsar. He also said that he had never wanted to become a tsar. Nicholas had great personal wit and charm, but in fact, he was also so indecisive, naïve and she. He wasn’t open for contacts which concern his subjects. Nicholas was happy to be in the family circle, and he was so close to the members of his family. He loved his wife Alexandra most of all, saying that she attracted him with the strength of the character.
Tsar’s wife Alexandra was so open, warm and caring about her family, but at the same time she was obstinate and withdrawn. These features of her character made her to be unpopular in the high society of Russian Kingdom. She had German roots and that is why some people distrust her and not accept her in their companies.
Both tsar and his wife strongly believed that continuance and prosperity of Russian Kingdom was higher than the autocracy. They considered that the right to rule Russia was appointed them by God. British Ambassador to Russia, Sir Arthur Nicholson, described Nicholas in 1906 as uneducated and gentle emperor. He also mentioned that tsar was weak in every situation excepting his own autocracy. Such kinds of characteristics were not beneficial for the Alexandra and Nicholas, because they wanted to realize some reforms in Russia. By the way, both of them strongly believed in the tree things which were sacred to them. It is said about Nationality, Autocracy and Orthodoxy. In fact, these ideologies left a little space for new ideas and plans, which were not realized in the full measure, as it was planned at the beginning. As result, those actions of Nicholas led to the downfall of the Russian Kingdom.
