A: Rasputin was already renowned as a faith healer, and the young prince Alexei had hemophilia. The doctors did not have much success treating Alexei so the Tsar gave Rasputin a try. The boy recovered and the royal family welcomed Rasputin into the court.

How did Rasputin affect WWI and the fall of the Romanov Dynasty in Russia? by Is Q: Apparently Rasputin was a pacifist and tried to convince Tsar Nicholas II not to get involved in WWI? (which presumably would have had catastrophic effects on Britain, France and other countries?) I don't know if that's true or not but I was hoping for some more info, and about his connection to the fall of the Romanovs? thanks very much! :)

A: I should probably sum up what I'm trying to say: The fall of the Romanovs certainly cannot be blamed on Rasputin. Like I mention below, I believe that the main reason was the inability of Nicholas to either crack down like a true tyrant, or yield to the demands of the 1905 revolutionary liberals, and make Russia a constitutional monarchy (like the UK). However, on top of all the grievances the elite in Petersburg, the farce of the holy man straight out of the Middle Ages must have only intensified their feeling that the Tsar must be overthrown. Hi, I have read a slightly different account of this particular character's influence on Russian history, but make no mistake, he was critical in the downfall of the Romanovs. In my undergrad days, I majored in Russian history and I do not recall ever hearing that Rasputin was a pacifist. If anything, Rapsutin was a supporter of the Tsar and mother Russia. The Tsaritsa, Nikolas' wife, was German...this probably had something to do with the implications of treachery, since she was Rasputin's patron. Rasputin is fascinating because of the influence he held over the Romanovs, at a critical time, and because of that, the influence he has had on world history. It was a bad influence on all accounts. Most Russian elites with half a brain hated Rasputin since they could see what he was: a power-hungry con artist who preyed on the Tsaritsa's motherly instinct to care for her hemophiliac son. That is how he first got his foot into the palace at Petersburg. Before shortly he was influencing the Tsar as well, who was not a particularly strong leader. Strong leaders are the only ones who ever survive in Russia. It was in fact Rasputin's advice that Nikolas go to the front in WWI and take personal control of the Russian Army, which was a tremendous mistake, since Nikolas had no military strategic training. The Germans ended up making no headway in the west, but beating the Russians so bad that people started to think Nikolas and his wife were actually German agents who were sabotaging the war effort! Imagine a president in America doing so bad we thought he was deliberately screwing things up because he was a foreign agent! The main reason for the fall of the Romanovs was the series of military defeats: first in the far East to the Japanese, a tiny nation of people who hadn't even had guns a generation before the war. And then World War 1, which was the most brutal war in the history of the world. All of the nations fighting in that war went through massive social upheavals. Russia, though, had been a pressure cooker of revolution for the decades leading up to the war. Russians, for the most part, aren't like us Americans or Britons who value freedom over anything else. The Russians don't mind an autocrat if he is an effective autocrat, and glorifies the Russian people through military, economic, and/or technological feats. Nicholas II was the worst of both worlds--he was a weak leader but determined to rule with an iron fist, and simply did not understand that the 20th century would be different from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Rasputin was the personification of everything that was wrong in the Russian autocracy--backwards, corrupt, irrational. He was an alcoholic, unwashed charlatan who held sway over millions of peoples lives, even though Russia had a fairly capable bureacracy and thousands of well-educated, highly cultured nobles who were interested in local government and the rule of law. Rapsutin was a throwback to the court jester or the mystic of the court--something you may see in ancient Persia, perhaps, but not in a modern European state.

¿Rasputin? by Angelus Q: Who exactly was Rasputin? I've heard of biazarre stories about this name. (For example; i think he was a character in the movie Hellboy, wasn't he?) So please (if you can) tell me who he was, and if you know of any, fictionous stories would be rewarded.

A: Rasputin was born in the Tyumen district of Siberia, far away from the glittering salons in the Imperial Capital of St. Petersburg. Even today he is a shadowy and mysterious character; a person of contradictory personality traits. Was he a miracle worker or just a crafty manipulator of the Imperial Family? While he was alive, witnesses, including doctors and skeptics, concluded he possessed some inexplicable power over the Tsarevich and his deadly episodes of bleeding. This mysterious ability to heal her son was enough to convince Aleksandrathat Rasputin, whatever people said of him, must have been sent by God. In her mind he was he the answer to her fervent prayers for God to save her son. It was impossible for her to believe that he could have been a wolf in sheep's clothing. His influence over politics has been greatly exaggerated. Rasputin was a convenient scapegoat for those who wanted to attack the Tsar's appointments and decisions, but who wouldn't confront Nicholas directly Rasputin was close to the Tsaritsa's closest friend, Anya Vyrubova. Her devotion to him was absolute, which was reinforced after a terrible derailment of the train from Tsarskoe Selo to Petersburg in which Anna was almost killed. Although she survived the accident Anna's condition was so bad her doctors despaired of saving her life; her body was crushed and mangled. Rasputin came to her bedside, stood over Anna as she lay near death. He reached out and held her hand. Dripping with sweat, intensely focused, Rasputin repeated the words, "Annushka, Annushka, rise!". The drama of the moment was incredible. Anna suddenly awoke from her coma, opened her eyes and tried to rise from her bed. It was a miracle. As Rasputin staggered into the next room, he spoke, prophetically saying that although she would live, for the rest of her life Anna would be a cripple. So it came to be. Rasputin tried to ingratiate himself with other members of the Romanov family, but most of them would have nothing to do with him. Olga, Nicholas sister, resented Rasputin's prying into her private life and rebuffed his offers of spiritual help in her marital problems. A number of influential churchmen fell for Rasputin early in his 'career' as a holy man. Later, these supporters in the church hierarchy turned on him and attempted to send him away from St. Peterburg. Rasputin cunningly knew how to undermine his enemies in the church and soon had them exiled or in disgrace. A bishop or monk who opposed him might find themself suddenly sent to a remote monastery or far-away episcopal see. In government affairs Rasputin's power was an illusion, although the Petersburg press crowed about his influence over important government appointments. Gossip claimed he had seduced the Empress, her daughters, and Anna Vyrubova as well. These rumors, which reached the highest circles of society where they were deliciously repeated by Aleksandra's foes, drove Nicholas to distraction. The remoteness and isolation of the Imperial Family made it possible for the general public to believe these crazy stories, but the aristocracy knew they were groundless. Still they derived pleasure from seeing Aleksandra's named dragged through the mud. Rasputin made the talk worse by flaunting the Imperial families gifts, letters and the telephone calls he received from Aleksandra asking for his prayers. People believed he had an uncanny control over the Tsar and his wife. Rasputin enjoyed the celebrity status this reputation gave him. The story of Rasputin's demise is well known. One night in December 1916, Rasputin was invited by Prince Felix Felixovich Yussupov to visit his palace on the Moika Canal. The pretext was the opportunity for Rasputin to meet Felix's wife, Irina, who was a great beauty and niece of the Tsar. Rasputin wanted to meet Irina and was flattered by Felix's attention. Felix claims he had been nurturing a relationship with Rasputin for a number of years before the invitation, although this relationship has never been fully explained. Felix always portrayed his murder of Rasputin as a political act to save Russia. Certainly, Felix had never shown any patriotic leanings before, so his murder of Rasputin is hard to explain from a political standpoint. It may have been there was some other, more personal, reason for Felix's desire to get rid of him. Besides Felix, who was the mastermind of the plot, the Tsar's first cousin and ward Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich Romanov, and a member of the Imperial Duma, Vladimir Mitrofanovich Purishkevich, were also involved in Rasputin's killing.
