Why didn't the Russians like Czar Nicolas II?
Czar Nicolas II was disliked because he had no idea what his people wanted. Up until WWI he removed himself from the public by isolating himself and his family in their palace. He did nothing to stop the spread of communism, anarchism, and nihilism in his cities and based his decisions on the advice of corrupt and partially insane advisers (Rasputin). During WWI he managed his nation's resources so badly that Russian soldiers often lacked boots and guns. Eventually, his people had enough, and turned to leaders they didn't fully understand (Vladamir Lenin, Joseph Stalin) and killed the entire Russian royal family.
