Re: Russian abdication

I have always been very surprised that Empress Marie Feodorovna and Nicholas' sisters made it out alive.
And that long standing anger and resentment is
what led to the murder/execution of not only Nicholas and Alexandra but of their 5 children as well.
After reading in Former People of the fates of the upper classes who stayed in Bolshevik Russia, it came as a ghastly realization to me that the poor Imperial Family actually got off comparatively easy. The bitter and grueling persecution and punishment of many individuals and families extended over decades.
