The Final Chapter / Re: Murder or execution? Thread 2
« on: April 10, 2010, 07:45:36 PM »
In my opinion, it was cold blooded murder, nothing more, nothing less.  Nicholas was out of power, and had been for over year.  He wasn't a threat to Lenin or any of his cronies.  Certinaly OTMAA did nothing to deserve such a horrible fate.  They were given no trial, no chance to speak in their own defense.  Yurovsky just came in, declared some speech, and then he and the rest of his hired thugs started blasting away.  It took twenty minutes for them to kill them all (some of the aformentioned thugs had been hitting the vodka and they were not professional marksmen).  It certainly wasn't quick and painless for the IF.

Also, some more of Yurovsky's thugs, who were waiting in the woods, were under the assumption that the executions would take place out there.  They too had been passing bottles of vodka around and were hoping to "have some fun" with the Grand Duchesses, before killing them (they didn't know they were already dead).  Read into that what you will.

Some people said that Nicholas II was an autocrat.  Well, even if he was, he and his family didn't deserve this.  Even top ranking Nazis got their day in court.

I have a series of stories called the Rex and Hannah Chronicles, it's a spin-off of the TV series Charmed (anyone here familiar with that show).  Anyway, my 13th R&H Chronicles story, Requiem, involved R&H encountering the Romanov's.  If you are interested in reading the story, this link will take you to it.  I hope you enjoy it.
