Rasputin's homecountry is Russia, not Serbia. The town he was born in is located in Siberia, the north part of Russia. I know it seems like unimportnat detail, but these two (Serbia and Siberia) are NOT the same things.

Another reason was the Russo-Japanese war which saw the Russians lose this conflict and in the end were widely humiliated and lead to a revolution which was later oppressed and caused the citizens to be angry at the Romanovs

To be honest, the imposters being insane doesn't sound so offbeat to me. Imagine seeing your siblings die right infront of you, being shot yourself multiple times, lieing there in a pool of your and your siblings blood, turning over and seeing their lifeless bodies next to you... I can imagine that this would flip some switches in a persons head...

One thing I love about movies like this is how they inspire people to look behind the cartoon and learn the true history behind them. To me, learning about who the Romanovs really were only enhances the movie, much like the film Titanic does. This was so much fun to watch and thank you for making these videos! (PS I’m a history major, so thank you for admitting you are not a professional historian, and you did a great job with the history!)

Jon, You have reviewed so many different fairy-tales and myths... Do you feel that Disney or other purveyors of historic tales and mythology should continue to make changes to already tales which abound? Or should they hold true to the tales as they were originally portrayed?

There are a few points I think you got wrong. Zar Nicholas and his wife preferred a quiet life rather than one filled with politics. The Zar, while incompetent, was not a cruel and demonic leader. Actually, both he and his wife knew very little of the political state their country was in both before the war and after the revolution. The Zar also was not in command for a large chunk of the war. He oversaw it, but did not make commands nor strategies. When the Zar was out on the field, a lot of the political power fell onto his wife who, believing Rasputin to be a man of miracles, let him convince her in her political decisions, ultimately convincing her husband in the process.

it's strange how much this family always reminded me of my own. my twin sister and I have been obsessed with them since we were little and have always felt this strange connection, particularly to Maria and Anastasia as the actual sisters remind us a lot of ourselves. their deaths have always terrified me as I've always believed that the worst way to die is to know it's coming and not being able to stop it. I still can't believe that they continually tried to kill the children and the images of what went down in the basement has always haunted me.

I know a Hungarian family (they are Eastern Orthodox Christian) and they have three daughters. The oldest daughter is called Anastasia and the middle daughter is called Tatiana, just like the Romanovs, so I thought of them during this.

The Romanovs were not pampered, the family had to make their own beds and clean by themselves. The mother of the girls made them do it because of her victorian ways. None of the girls deserved to die and honestly, even tho the parents weren't the best, I would have given them mercy. UwU

10:17 lol but do you know the story of Franz Ferdinand's assassination? (i understand this is not something to make fun of but his assassins were honestly so incompetent) so he was assassinated by the black hand gang, it was supposed to be during a drive Franz was taking around the city using a grenade but one of the assassins threw the grenade directly at the car, forgetting that it doesn't go off immediately so it didn't kill them but served as a warning. Franz and his wife sped off and one of the assassins was being chased so he took a (cyanide i think) pill to kill himself and jumped in a lake BUT the pill was gone off and only made him vomit, and the lake was like 3 inches deep so the guards got him easily. i actually learned this quite a while ago and i feel like theres more to the story but the next thing i remember is that gavrilo princep, one of the assassins, was outside a shop hours later when Franz car drove down the road (Franz driver wasnt even supposed to take that route) so Gavrilo shot them. eventually some of the captured assassins gave the names of the other assassins.

They did it to eliminate any possible claims to power in the future. The adults were killed. So what? The roots--the children--are still there and would replace their parents. The safest way is to erase the problem completely. Yes, the kids may have not posed a threat then, but when they grow up, it is a different story.

I actually never watched this movie but I really want to, I just watched it to know some history facts. Also WW1 was not just caused by the assassination of Archduke Frans Ferdinand, it was also caused by militarism, secret alliances, nationalism, and imperialism, I learnt that in a long time ago, it was called M.A.N.I.A so you can remember it easily.
