How on Earth did he go from "the Advocate of Universal Peace" in 1899 to "Bloody Nicholas" in 1905?

Six short years and so much changed.

But even as Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia in 1914, Nicholas was asking that the matter be referred to the Hague.

Too bad nobody was listening.  Millions of young lives would have been saved and the history of the last 100 years might have been a lot less bloody.

This year we are celebrating 120 years of the first international peace conference.

An initiative of Tsar Nicholas II which has allowed the creation of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague.

One of the great decisions of Tsar Nicholas II, although it did not prevent the Russo-Japanese war and the First World War.
