Nicholas II / Re: Nicholas II was Unprepared to Rule. Why?
« on: March 30, 2013, 02:08:31 PM »
I just watched Nicholas and Alexandra and I have also been reading about the Windsors.
While the Windsors adapted to the modern world and the concept of a constitutional
government, the Romanovs could not grasp that.  Many were still living as if they were
in the days of Napoleon.  Nicholas himself embraced the concept of autocrat, not
because he was himself dictatorial, but because that was what he had come to
see as the role of the tsar.  A lot of the majesty of their rule was the fact that they
were all-powerful.  Had Nicholas embraced the concept of the Duma, I think things
would have been different.
