- 3 hr 9 min
Tsarevich Alexei was born back in the early 1900s during the Russo-Japanese war, and as he grows up he is warned about the futile war by both Count Witte and Grand Duke Nicholas. Meanwhile, Tsarina Alexandra befriends a Siberian peasant, Grigori Rasputin. He claims to be some sort of holy man. It follows them throughout their lives all the way up to World War I. Under Rasputin's influence, Alexandra actually makes a lot of poor decisicions which causes her to slowly start to loose control on the home front. After the fall of Russia, the family that was with Dr. Botkin is sent to the Ipatiev House in Yekaterinburg, where their conditions only become more harsh under the rule of Yakov Yurovsky.
