Czar Nicholas II was first taken by the forces of the Russian

Provisional Government after he was forced to abdicate his throne.

Later after the Bolshevik Revolution, he was taken into Bolshevik

custody. In July 1918, the Czar and all his family were murdered by

the Bolsheviks.

It should be remembered that the Bolsheviks never overthrew the

Czar. He was already out of power by the time the Bolsheviks took
