Alexander III of Russia (1845)

Alexander III was tsar of Russia from 1881 until his death in 1894. As ruler, he sought to counteract what he considered the excessive liberalism of his father's reign and pursued a reactionary policy that promoted Russification and the persecution of religious minorities.

Alexander III wanted to preserve the autocratic tradition where the monarch took his order from God. Poor guy, if he only knew he would lose his son, his daugher-in-law and his grandchildren in a basement of the Ipatyev House in Yekaterinburg.

Yelstin torn the house down for fear of it becoming a shrine which of course it promptly did. Now the Church of the Blood stand on the site.

Alexander's daughter Olga, the last of his children to survive, finished her days in Canada, living above a beauty salon in Toronto.
