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.

Nicholas II did try to prevent WWI. In his last communication to the Kaiser, he asked his cousin to take their dispute to the Hague. Cousin Willy did not reply.

Nicholas II became bloody Nicholas do to the the Russo-Japanese was which was a disaster to Russia and Nicholas. Of course it did lead to the creation of the Duma ect.

If you want to see how inept the Russians were see the youtube presentation " The Russian 2nd Pacific Squadron Voyage of the Damned' while it is LOL funny it is also true see the books:
The Fleet that had to die
The Tide at Sunrise
The Tsar's Last Armada

As for the start of WW I see on youtube:
National WW I Museum and Memorial
Chris Clark The Sleep Walkers
Max Hastings Catastrophe

The protests that led to "Bloody Sunday" were because of the surrender of the fortress of Port Arthur by it's inept commander.

That's quite a big generalization, many more causes can be linked to the Bloody Sunday like the long insatisfaction towards monarchy, the poor social conditions of the worker class, etc. The end of the Russo-Japanese war was included, but it should probably be seen as a catalyst and not the only cause. History is always more complex.
