Anyone know the story of Czar Nicolas II and his family/doctor? For those of you who don't he was the Czar of Russia leading up to WWI. The Bolsheviks, a militant group arising through Russia's civil turmoil, seized power by murdering Nicolas II and his whole family. Nicolas' doctor, whom he hired to help his son with (I believe) his inability to easily create blood clots (forgot the name of the disease though). As all the executions were going on, this guy was supposedly shot, stabbed, burned, poisoned and drowned. His body was never recovered though, if I'm not mistaken. The idea being though, he was immortal... kind of.

ANYWAYS...

Does anyone know if this has been made into a movie (yet)? To me, at least, this would be a crazy flick. Although, I'm kind of envisioning it as more of a Bourne Identity meets WWI in Russia.

Thoughts?

I think white people are better than black people.
While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

Anastasia. There are also various adaptations of the story of Rasputin, the "aide" you're referring to. And yes, his body was found - he didn't die of the poison, two gunshots, stab wounds, blood loss, or drowning (he was thrown in a river.) He died of hypothermia.
whatthefedit: He also had the craziest eyes. Ever.

Yes the story of Rasputin has been adapted many times over.

And I believe it's spelt Tsar.


Both spellings are accepted.

It can be either way, I think Czar is closer to the Cyrillic.


TS, come on, everybody knows Rasputin. Did you know his penis is embalmed in a museum somewhere?

Anastasia wasn't strictly speaking about the actual events surrounding the massacre of the Russian royal family, rather built on the true story of a girl who claimed to be a survivor of the massacre, Grand Duchess Anastasia.

DNA evidence proved her to be a liar after her death.
