I knew the minute I began writing "sentry" someone would correct me :-) Yes you're right of course, Aide-de-camp makes more sense. I was just looking for someone ordinary to go and fetch the Tsar. Thanks Ann!

For the next scene we focus our attention, again, to the political unrest within the country. We begin with a conversation between the Tsar and Minister of National Enlightenment Nikolay Bogolepov. The words “February, 1901 – Moscow” scroll across the screen…

February, 1901 - Moscow

Nicholas: I’ve listened to the advice of my ministers…including you Bogolepov. Was outlawing public drunkenness a worthwhile measure?
Bogolepov: It has not lived up to the intended effect your majesty. The taverns are still filled with students.
Nicholas: I’m not yet ready to call it a mistake. Do you know what they call alcoholism in our country?
Bogolepov: Yes your majesty, the “Russian Disease”.
Nicholas (pacing around the room): I don’t know what to make of these students. Russia tends to produce creatures with effete bodies and souls, torn away from their milieu and not knowing what to do with themselves.
Bogolepov: I agree your majesty. They are also enticed along the wrong path…incited and led astray by a few dozen scoundrels and rascals.
Nicholas: The Russian education system is full of rigor mortis. We ought to be modeling ourselves after the British.
Bogolepov: Yes I do have some ideas for systematic improvement. I do not see any reason why we cannot revamp the system and root out the bad elements of our universities at the same time.
Nicholas: It’s a discussion worth having. I welcome your advice Bogolepov.
Bogolepov: I'm honored your majesty.

The following scene is a brief conversation between Bogolepov and his assistant, discussing a recent student uprising at the University of Kiev and the appropriate disciplinary action…

Assistant: Minster Bogolepov this is the list of students responsible for the recent disturbances.
Bogolepov (reading): How many?
Assistant: One hundred and eighty three.
Bogolepov (looking up with some amazement): Minster Witte needs to realize that these half measures are not working. We either need to allow for the free speech of students, and all of their misguided protests and propaganda, or we need to come down hard on them. “Temporary Regulations” are not the answer.
Assistant: Kiev University students are notoriously unruly sir.
Bogolepov: Then it’s about time they be taught a lesson. Apparently they’ve made poor students but perhaps they’ll make good soldiers.
Assistant: Conscription sir?
Bogolepov: Yes Dmitri, see to it.

The scene quickly shifts to a few days later. We see Bogolepov exiting his office doors and walking in the direction of home early one evening. There are street demonstrations as protesters are shown parading around on this the fortieth anniversary of Tsar Nicholas II’s “Emancipation of the Serfs”. A revolutionary is suddenly shown running up to the minister and just as Bogolepov has time to turn and acknowledge the fast approaching footsteps he is shot in neck at point blank range. Witnesses see the incident. The killer Pyotr Karpovich would quickly be tracked down while others surround and try to assist the fallen minister who is shown lying lifelessly on the street, grasping at the wound to his neck.

Next scene shifts to the Mariinsky Palace and a meeting room where the State Council is in session. A man who has entered the palace and dressed in the uniform of an adjutant is stopped by a sentry…

April, 1902 – Mariinsky Palace, St. Petersburg

Sentry: Wait a second, who are you?
Sefan Balmashov (smiling): Oh hello I apologize, my name is Boris Sokolov (fake name).
Sentry: State you business officer.
Balmashov: I am told Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich is visiting from Moscow and I have been given orders by my superiors to deliver this parcel.
Sentry: I’m sorry but I cannot let you simply pass without checking that package.
Balmoshov (rolling his eyes): Very well.

The sentry takes the package from Balmoshov, cuts it open with a knife and then checks through the contents. He sees some books and a couple of small valuables...

Balmoshov: Please be careful there are valuables in there
Sentry (handing the unsealed packaged back over): Alright. End of the hall, make your last left, down the corridor and it’s the first door on your right. Be sure to knock before you head in.
Balmoshov: Very well thank you.

Balmoshov is shown following the sentry’s instructions down the hall but he ignores the room with the closed door that he was instructed to knock on. Instead he continues to walk through the palace and eventually hears the voice of two men in conversation around the corner. He takes a peak and notices one of the men is Dmitry Sipyagin who breaks off the discussion and proceeds to walk alone down the hallway directly towards Balmoshov. In slow motion we are shown Balmoshov walking around the corner and down the hallway still with package in hand. Sipyagin nods and smiles as he passes the man who he assumes is an officer. After passing each other Balmoshov drops the package which draws the attention of the minister who turns around. He catches a quick glimpse of his assassin pulling out a concealed pistol and has time only to pass a look of terror on his face before being shot once in the chest. He falls to the ground in a heap of agony, spitting up blood. Balmoshov is prepared to fire another shot to finish off his victim. Just then however he hears the voices of guards, who themselves have just heard a shot fired, storming down the hallway. Balmoshov elects to turn and run instead as the camera focuses in on the dying moments of Sipyagin. The scene fades out.

We then shift to another impending assassination, this time of the Governor-General of Finland, Nikolay Bobrikov. Two men chat amongst themselves at a secret Finnish nationalist meeting...

June, 1904 – Helsinki, Finland

Man #1: Did you hear Bobrikov is preparing a random inspection of businesses and factories in the city?
Man #2: Who the hell does he think he is?
Man #1: He’s the Governor-General, that’s who.
Man #2: It’s madness. We have been living in oppression for five years now. Ever since that idiot Tsar Nicholas signed that manifesto and appointed Bobrikov as his Finnish watch dog.
Man #1: Yes, they care nothing of our culture. It’s a continuing of the policies of his father…Russification.
Man #2: Bobrikov is a henchman. He’s made it this long because he is feared. But people won’t stand to be afraid forever. You wait and see!

The two men pay notice to someone else entering the room. Tall, good looking, and appearing to be in his late-20s…

Man #2: Who is that…he looks familiar
Man #1: That is Eugen Schauman. He clerks in the Senate and I understand he has arranged for student marksmanship classes.
Man #2 (smiling, sarcastically): Training revolutionaries?
Man #1: Soldiers I would think.

Next scene we see Bobrikov walking along towards the Senate building entrance. Near a railing off to the side stands Schauman. He’s finishing up a cigarette and shouts out “Mister Governor-General”. Schauman walks over to Bobrikov who slows down recognizing the clerk approaching him with what he assumes is important information or perhaps a hand shake. In slow motion we see Schauman pull out a pistol and instantly begins firing shots. The first two deflect off of Bobrikov’s decorative medals and epaulets, but the third bullet lodges in his stomach knocking the staggering Governor-General to the ground. In the background we see guards pulling out their guns and running towards to murder scene. But before they have the opportunity to catch up to the shooter Schauman turns the gun on himself and fires two shots into his chest in an act of suicide.

One last fatality is that of Vyacheslav Plehve, the Minister of the Interior. we cut to a scene where the Tsar is congratulating Plehve on being named to his new post upon the death of Dmitry Sipyagin…


July, 1904 – St. Petersburg

Nicholas: Congratulations Mister Minister of the Interior. I wish we could be doing this under better circumstances and not so soon after Sipyagin’s tragic death.
Plehve: Thank you your majesty
Nicholas: It is only natural after an assassination to be filled with concern. But let me impress upon you that it is of the utmost importance that you not concede your duties to fear.
Plehve: Of course your majesty. As former police director I feel I have a keen understanding of these radical’s initiatives. They can be rooted out and marginalized.
Nicholas: Please see to it that they are. They are the enemies of all of Russia. Not only the autocracy.

Flash forward two years later to Plehve riding in his carriage down a street in St. Petersburg. He checks his watch and gazes out of the right side window. Suddenly from the left side an explosive is tossed into the carriage. Plehve only has time to look over at the fleeing assassin and down at the smoking bomb with a look of horror before it explodes. We see the top and right side of his carriage blown to bits.

Lastly we catch back up with the Tsar who has just been informed of yet another assassination of a government official. Nicholas’s seems to be acting surprisingly reserved considering the wave of attacks. His demeanor is listless and ambivalent…

Sergei Witte: Your majesty we need a new approach to handling this wave of civil unrest.
Nicholas: We catch these men and we punish them. You aren’t suggesting that I have every square inch of the Empire policed are you?
Sergei Witte: I suggest that you either issue added protection for government officials or address the concerns of the individuals who would do us harm.
Nicholas (glaring up at Witte from the paperwork on his desk): What are you suggesting?
Sergei Witte: They seek reforms your majesty. It might be a necessary step in order to quell the growing violence.
Nicholas: You suggest I bring in terrorist representatives and plea bargain to their demands?
Sergei Witte: Your majesty…
Nicholas (interrupting): Offering them my ear and my time is to offer them legitimacy. I’d be saying that it’s alright to continue to assassinate government officials because eventually you’ll get your way.
Sergei Witte: I beg your pardon sir, but how does this end? These terrorists, these men who have committed these acts, they aren’t going away. Every time they remove one government official you appoint a new one who takes their place and nothing changes. The same policies that have sent one man after another to his untimely grave puts the life of his replacement in jeopardy. The ministers are both fearful and furious. This you must understand.
Nicholas: It’s God’s will Witte. I honor the sacrifice of these men. These are trying times but they won’t always be.
Sergei Witte: Bogolepov, Borbrikov, Sipyagin, Plehve…plus dozens of other officials. All within the past few years. This is not the work of a few angry yet isolated fundamentalists…it’s the product of a growing trend.
Nicholas (gets up and walks to the window, peering out): My grandfather was a reformer, yet he was killed just the same. Am I to issue reforms and be killed? Or am I to be firm and be no more likely to end up dead? The Lord has a path for all of us. For me, for you, for the ministers...for Russia.

The scene shifts to Nicholas reading a letter delivered to him from his sister-in-law Princess Elisabeth of Hesse. He is now alone in his study. We show him reading the following…

Nicholas (reading): “I greatly fear additional attacks. Who knows who might be next dear Nicky! Don’t be so gentle, all think you are wavering and weak. They no more speak of you as kind and it makes my heart ache so too too bitterly.”

Nicholas is shown crumbling up Ella’s letter in disgust and tossing it into a waste basket. The scene fades out…

Doh! More than a little blooper, lol, thanks Tim...and for your compliments!

As I keep reading along it's amazing all of the things I want to go back and include even if they aren't essential to the overall storyline. Just today I was reading about a conversation between Minister Plehve and Ulysses S. Grant's grand daughter Julia where he seems to have foretold his own death by assassination shortly before it actually happened. Again, nothing critical to the main plot but something that could make for a pretty compelling scene.

I swear you are taking a script writing course on the sly! Great stuff!

What I find amazing in that conversation between Minister Plehve and Ulysses S. Grant's grand daughter,
is his calm acceptance of his fate...it's only worth mentioning it  so he can explain his future  absence from her tea table .

Princess Julia Cantacuzene : Minister Plehve, I look forward to seeing you here at my tea
again when we return from the country.

Minister Plehve: Madame,  I'm sure to be here....if I'm still alive

And of course I have you to thank for that as well Anne :-)

Yes it's quite a little conversation between the two of them. I'll have to consider including it but it was never my intention to develop the Minister as a real character and certainly not Princess Julia. Amazing all of the new bits and pieces of information you find just by reading continuously...

Well I think we could probably keep that to one 2 1/2 movie but I like the idea. Its really a perfect idea for an historical film. The story of Nicholas II's reign and the fall of the Russian Empire, told by the intelligent, witty and attractive grand daughter of a famous US President and General. One offering a unique (and American) perspective as the tragic events unfold. A member of the court married to a Prince and having first hand stories to tell of her contacts with the Imperial Family, ministers, etc. What's not to like?

The only thing missing really is detailed analysis of Rasputin since she admittedly never met or saw him. But that can be gotten around. If this "Nicholas & Alexander" screenplay falls flat maybe I'll try to turn Princess Grant-Cantacuzene's memoirs into something :-)

Alexandra's mysticism deepens as the anxiety and pressure builds to produce an heir. Next scene takes us to Alexander Park where Alexandra and sister Ella are taken on a carriage ride. The first part of the discussion revolves around the developing family controversy surrounding Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich and his relationship with Olga Karnovitsch. The subsequent marriage a year later would prompt Tsar Nicholas to exile his youngest uncle in disgust. Paul's children from his previous marriage to Princess Alexandra of Greece would subsequently be placed under the care of Grand Duchess Elisabeth and husband Grand Duke Sergei. The latter part of the conversation features Ella questioning her sister about the presence of Monsieur Philippe at the court. Alexandra is cagey and mostly dismissive...

August 3, 1901 - St. Petersburg

Alexandra: The rumors I keep hearing are simply awful. The Grand Duke Paul still pursues this commoner woman.
Ella: Alix you must understand that for a long time now he has been a broken man. Fathering two children all alone. In Olga he is not only courting a potential wife but the mother Dmitri, Vladimir and Marie never had.
Alexandra: His wife has been gone for ten years. In that time he was not able to find a suitable companion of royal lineage? Ten years! Paul Alexandrovich is a Grand Duke…uncle to the Emperor.
Ella: It’s love dear sister. You must know this as well as anyone?
Alexandra: It’ll bring shame upon the royal family. Nicky cannot allow it.
Ella (after a lengthy pause): Alix this might be a wise time to mention something else that has been on my mind. Grand Duke Paul is not the only one who is the subject of rumors lately.
Alexandra (dismissive laugh): Oh what are they saying about me now?
Ella: You have been speaking with that holy man lately, yes?
Alexandra: Monsieur Philippe?
Ella: Yes, the Frenchman.
Alexandra: He’s been a great help to Nicky and I during this difficult period.
Ella: There are many stories going around. That he’s not a real doctor and a charlatan. He associates with many questionable characters. Worst of all he’s being seen as wielding too much influence on the Imperial Family.
Alexandra: Nonsense. He is perfectly harmless. All of these rumors are no doubt coming from jealousy and inquisitiveness.
Ella: Have you seen him lately?
Alexandra: Nicky and I have seen him several times…but this is no ones business. Philippe offers up good spiritual guidance and influences us not at all in the matters of state.
Ella: Nicholas Nikolaevich brought him to your attention yes?
Alexandra: Nikolasha barely knows him. It is Nicky and I who sought his advice.
Ella: I’m only thinking about your standing in the court and with the people Alix. I worry. Perhaps too much…but that’s what big sisters are for, no?
Alexandra (smiling): Yes sister dear…could we please talk about something more cheerful? It is such a lovely day afterall.
Ella (concerned smile): Yes of course.

Scene cuts away and we pick things up with a brief conversation between the Imperial couple of Father Ioann of Kronstadt. It is shortly after the birth of their fourth daughter Anastasia and Nicholas and Alexandra are beginning to wonder whether they are cursed to never produce a natural heir...

Nicholas: Father it is important that you understand how truly blessed we feel to be the parents of four beautiful daughters.
Alexandra: Yes Brother Philippe declared that this is a special sign from God. The stars promised a boy. A daughter can only mean that the Lord has prepared a special destiny for this child.
Father Ioann: I agree. God has a special destiny for you also your majesties. That you have not produced a male child and heir to the imperial throne after four attempts confirms this. This is a sign. The Lord is issuing a challenge to you and your faith. Only when your faith is strong can you be truly righteous.
Alexandra: What more can we do father?
Father Ioann: In your discussions with Monsieur Philippe has he mentioned the great Seraphim of Sarov?
Nicholas: Yes, in passing at least. We are aware of some of his teachings.
Father Ioann: He is a true saint and miracle worker. Even in death God is said to work miracles through him and guides those who submit to his blessings.
Alexandra: He has been dead for many years, yes?
Father Ioann: Seventy to be exact. But he continues to have a great deal of followers. It might be wise to visit his home and final resting place in Sarov to pray. Pray not only for spiritual guidance, but for an intervention. One that will produce for you a son.

July 16, 1903 - Sarov

Next we catch up with he family traveling to Sarov on the advice of Kronstadt and Philippe. They are attending a service at the Dominion Cathedral where the Orthodox Monk Seraphim is being canonized a saint by the church. Seraphim was a major influence on the life and teachings of Philippe and on the growing religiosity of the Imperial couple. We start by showing Alexandra and Nicholas speaking to one another shortly before their train arrives in Sarov…

Alexandra: This will be a wonderful a gesture. Brother Philippe and Father Kronstadt was right about Seraphim. His sainthood is long overdue to be recognized.
Nicholas: Yes it’s the right thing. For seventy years he’s been regarded as a figure of cult worship. For now on he’ll be recognized as a prophet and saint to all of Russia.

The train pulls into the station and we cut to a scene of the royal family being greeted by a massive and overwhelming crowd. Nicholas is introduced to the officiate of the ceremonies, Metropolitan Anthony…

Anthony (bowing): Your majesties it is honor to have you with us on this most auspicious of occasions.
Nicholas (shaking hands): Thank you…I am thrilled to see so many in attendance. How large do we expect the crowds to be?
Anthony: There are at least 150,000 your majesty. By the time of the service this evening we believe the numbers could grow to twice that.
Alexandra (excitedly): Incredible!
Nicholas: Yes, splendid!
Anthony: Please come now…we are serving tea. Allow us to get you and your little ones settled in comfortably.

Next scene takes us to 6pm that evening. The bells ring out in preparation of an all night vigil. Hymns can be heard and Seraphim's coffin is exposed for public veneration. We see the family kneeling and praying at the cathedral. Outside meanwhile we are shown the masses of common Russia citizens doing the same. “Praise Ye the Name of the Lord” is then sung and the cypress coffin opened. The Metropolitan clergy and royal family are shown blessing and venerating the relics. Nicholas and Alexandra are then shown briefly speaking with attending members of the clergy after the ceremonies have finished...

Nicholas: I’m humbled by the outpouring of enthusiasm from the people.
Alexandra: These are the true Russian people.
Anthony: It’s an experience that all here in Sarov and from far beyond were moved to be part of. We are all very fortunate to have you as our leaders your majesties. God has blessed Russia with Tsar Nicholas and Empress Alexandra. As Seraphim himself would say, “acquire a peaceful spirit, and around you thousands will be saved.”
Alexandra (moistened eyes and whispering in her husband’s ear): Philippe was right!

Later on aboard the train heading back towards Tsarskeo Selo we are quickly shown Alexandra reading a book of Seraphim’s prophecies and religious teachings. Nicholas is shown standing at a cabin doorway gazing upon his two sleeping eldest daughters Olga and Tatiana, ages eight and six and a half respectively. Nicholas closes the door and turns his attention to his wife across the room…

Alexandra (looking up): Are the children still stirring about?
Nicholas: No they are asleep now.
Alexandra (focusing back on her book): Good.
Nicholas: What are you reading my dear.
Alexandra: It’s a book of Seraphim’s prophecies. The Department of Police were kind enough to give it to us knowing we were making this journey.
Nicholas (sitting down across from his wife and lighting up a cigarette): Does anything in particular move you?
Alexandra: Oh Nicky it is amazing. I feel like our lives are in these pages and I cannot put this book down! Listen to this (flipping back several pages)….”At the beginning of this monarch’s reign there will be national disasters, there will be an unsuccessful war, and great confusion will ensue within the government. Father will rise up against son and brother against brother. But the second half of the reign will be bright, and the sovereign’s life long.”

The two stare back at one another in silence with a look of surprise and inquisitiveness on their faces. The only sound in the room is the ticking of the clock on the wall as the scene fades to black…

Those are fine scenes there , Edubs, on the circumstances surrounding the asassinations of Bogolopev,Sipyagin, Bobrikov  and Plehve. I must admit the details of those killings had escaped me til now. The histories I've read have simply just mentioned them. So, what have you been reading ?
In any case, your scenarios are nicely fleshed out and I hope and assume near to the historical reality. I'm glad I'm still learning this way.. Keep it coming!
