It was literally the Russian Revolution.
The immediate cause of the first revolution in March 1917 was the disastrous impact of the First World War.
the people of the north came to invade russia
The First World War brought shortages and famine to Russia. TheTsarÃ¢??s incompetence turned the military against him after hepersonally took control of the army, making it …appear as if thedefeats could directly be blamed on him. After losing control ofthe people, the military and the Duma, he was forced to abdicate inMarch, 1917.
The March Revolution or Russian Revolution of 1917 resulted in theoverthrowing of the tsars and the feudal system of society inRussia. It also paved the way for the Bolsheviks… (Socialists) totake power later that same year.
No, it wasn't, because a true Marxist Revolution would have been where a proletariat of workers in an industrialized country seized the means of production from their owners, …establish a socialist system then create a government to keep it that way. In Russia at that time there was no true Marxian proletariat because Russia was not industrialized. The March Revolution began by peasants and workers demonstrating against the Tsarist government, causing it to topple then simply imposing another government (the Provisional Government) in place of the Tsar's. No means of production were seized; no workers became empowered and the means of production remained in the hands of their owners. That is not what Marx had in mind.
What effect might the March 1917 revolution in Russia have had on the decision of the US to join the war?
The leadership of the US likely wanted to enter World War 1 fromthe beginning of the war, but lacked public support. The sinking ofthe Lusitania turned public support in favor… of going to war. It isunlikely that the Russian Revolution had an impact on either thepublic or the leadership's willingness to go to war, as Americanforeign policy was still very isolationist.
The Russian Revolution forced the czar to resign in March 1917.After he left power, a provisional government was formed by theDuma, the Russian parliament. The provisional gov…ernment was itselfoverthrown in October 1917 by the Bolsheviks, led by VladimirLenin. This instigated the Russian Civil War, as the Bolshevikforces fought to overthrow the Russian factions opposed to them.The Civil War lasted until 1922. The Bolsheviks were victorious andtheir victory led to the formation of the Soviet Union.
After seeing that he could not stop the food riots, the Tsar, Nicholas II, abdicated for himself and for his son; therefore ending 300 years of Romanov rule.
The March Revolution was the uprising which forced Czar Nicholas II to abdicate the throne and allowed the Mensheviks to take control and set up a Provisional Government to ru…le until a permanent government could be formed.
The Provisional Government under Prince Georgy Lvov came to power immediately after the March Revolution. Three months later Alexander Kerensky took over the Provisional Gover…nment. In October, Vladimir Lenin took all power when he and the Bolsheviks overthrew the Provisional Government.
Because the Tsar's soldiers opened fire on women and children protesting for bread. This then lead to inflation and a shortage of bread, which was then rationed. Then caused t…he Russian revolution.
In War and Military History
March 1917 March 1917 saw major changes in Russia. Rasputin was dead and Lenin was out of the country. By the start of 1917, the people of Russia were very angry. Why? the… First World War had cost Russia millions of lives. those not actually fighting had to face serious food shortages. the winter of 1916-17 was very cold and fuel was in very short supply. cold and lack of food create an environment that leads to trouble for those blamed for these problems. By March 1917, discontent came to a head in Petrograd - this was St. Petersburg but the name sounded too German so in 1914 the name was changed to the more Russian sounding Petrograd. Petrograd became St. Petersburg. March 4th : workers in the city's largest factory (the Putilov engineering factory) demanded a 50% wage increase so that they could buy food. The management refused so the workers went on strike. March 8th : 30,000 workers were locked out of work. They were not paid and could not afford any food now. The strikers persuaded other workers to come out on strike. Demonstrations occurred throughout the city. Nicholas II was in Petrograd at this time but he left to inspect troops at the war front thinking that the demonstrations were the work of hooligans and that they would end shortly. He was very wrong. March 9th : the riots got worse and were getting out of hand. Nicholas was informed about the situation and the Russian Parliament (the Duma) pleaded with him to order the release of emergency food supplies. He refused and ordered that the riots should be put down by March 10th !! March 10th : the police tried to carry out the orders of Nicholas. Unfortunately, people got killed and the rioters became even more angry. The rioters opened up prisons and released those in them. For the first time there were calls for the tsar to quit. The head of the Duma informed Nicholas that law and order had broken down as soldiers brought in to put down the rioters had, in fact, joined them !! Nicholas then did something very foolish. He ordered that the Duma was no longer to meet. March 11th : the Duma disobeyed Nicholas - this is usually considered the first act of the Russian Revolution. The members of the Duma met in chaos. One person in the Duma, Alexander Kerensky, shouted out that 25,000 soldiers had mutinied and were marching to where the Duma was meeting to support them. With this support, the Duma decided to form a temporary government (the Provisional Government) to take the place of the tsar. In a bizarre move, Alexandra, the tsar's wife, phoned him to tell him that he had nothing to worry about !! March 12th : The leader of the Duma was a man called Rodzianko. He persuaded Nicholas that things had got very bad for the royal family. Nicholas then decided to return to Petrograd to restore law and order. The Provisional Government by this time had got some degree of control and they stopped the royal train outside of Petrograd. The government wanted to talk terms with Nicholas. The first plan was for Alexis - the son - to take over but Nicholas refused this as he felt that the boy was too weak. The throne was offered to Grand Duke Michael but he did not want it. It became clear to Nicholas that the Provisional Government did not want a tsar and he was forced to give up the throne. Thus royalty came to an end in Russia. There had been a tsar since 1480. Now in March 1917 the title came to an end. Do note that for the whole of this important event, Lenin was out of Russia. Even he was unprepared for this. What became of the royal family ? Once the communists had taken over in November 1917, the royal family became a problem as there were many thousands who still believed in royalty and were willing to fight to have the family restored to power. To stop this from happening, an order was made for them to be executed. In the summer of 1918, the Romanov family was under house arrest in Ekateringburg. It is said that they were told to get ready to go to Germany because they were to leave Russia. They were taken to a cellar and shot by the Communist secret police. Their bodies were thrown down a series of wells in a forest so that it was impossible for any relics of them to be found.

There are a great number of long-term and immediate causes. The most prominent: the way that Russia's leadership and the Tsar personally was handling a (losing) war, causing m…assive loss of life; but mainly, the breakdown of Russia's wartime economy with resulting food shortages and steeply rising prices.
