Empire of The Tsars: Romanov Russia with Lucy WorsleyEmpire of The Tsars: Romanov Russia with Lucy Worsley
BBC Four, 2016 Cancelled/Ended | Documentary, History
Rating: 5/5

The Romanovs are best known to us as the Russian royal family killed by revolutionaries in 1918. But there's more to one of Europe's most powerful dynasties than a tsar who could have been King George V's twin, a "missing" princess, Anastasia, and a mysterious magical man, Rasputin. The Romanovs ruled Russia for more than three centuries, after all, and Lucy Worsley is eager to tell their extraordinary tale. From the reluctant 16-year-old Romanov boy who didn't want to be king, to Peter the Great and Catherine the Great, she documents the royal family's reign and asks how their rule affected the lives of the ordinary people who eventually tore the family's world down. Lucy tells the story of the dynasty that ruled Russia for more than three centuries, including figures such as Peter the Great and Catherine the Great, the struggle against Napoleon in 1812, and the political murders of Nicholas II and his family in 1918.
