The Last Imperial Family of Russia: Villains, Victims or Saints

The official view of the Last Imperial Family of Russia has changed dramatically during the last few decades. Previously vilified, they are now viewed as martyrs and ‘Passion-bearers’, as victims of the disastrous circumstances in Russia at the end of World War I. We look at the family within the context of their daily life and physical environment, and consider the reasons for this dramatic reinterpretation of history.
