Rus­sia has been con­tro­ver­sial since way back when, it’s not a modern phe­nom­e­non. The sec­ond of this two-part se­ries about Tsar Ni­cholas II and his wife, the Em­press Alexan­dra, who were bru­tally mur­dered, ex­plores how their bad choices took the Rus­sian Em­pire from be­ing a great world power to the brink of eco­nomic and mil­i­tary col­lapse. His­to­rian Dr Suzan­nah Lip­scomb looks at their in­ti­mate re­la­tion­ship in the years be­fore the Rus­sian Rev­o­lu­tion.
