Murder → Murdering of Russian Tsar Nicholas II and his family

Nicholas II of Russia (Nikolay Alexandrovich Romanov) was the last Emperor of Russia, King of Poland, and Grand Duke of Finland. Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra and their children were executed (they were shot) in the house of a Yekaterinburg merchant (Ipatiev house) by Bolshevik revolutionaries on 17 July 1918. Since then, there have been rumours that one or more of the Romanovs had survived the massacre. ...Nicholas was the first to die. He was shot with multiple bullets to the head and chest. The last ones to die were Anastasia, Tatiana, Olga, and Maria, who were wearing several pounds of diamonds within their clothing, thus rendering them bullet-resistant to an extent. They were speared with bayonets. The head of the execution squad was Yakov Yurovsky. Nine bodies were dumped in the muddy forest outside the Russian city of Ekaterinburg, their faces smashed to prevent recognition, their flesh destroyed in a wash of sulfuric acid. The remains of all the family and their retainers with the exception of two of the children were later found in 1991. We do believe that one of Nicholas II's children, Anastasia Romanov, may have survived. You will see in the images: the Ipatiev house in Ekaterinburg in 1918, at the time of the Romanovs' captivity; the death scene; Ekaterinburg (Sverdlovsk) - the Ipatiev House - destroyed on Moscow's order, 1977; diagram of the grave outside Ekaterinburg; the pit during excavation; the tsar computerized; Russian forensics at work; the site of the murders (1991).

In 1991, nine skeletons were found in a shallow grave in Ekaterinburg, Russia. They were believed to be the remains of the Romanov family. The British Forensic Science Service worked with the Russian authorities to investigate. Using samples of the bones, they performed DNA analysis and this established that the bodies were a family group. The forensic team also analysed the mitochondrial DNA, which is easier to extract from bones and survives for longer than chromosomal DNA. This can be used to test relationships between individuals who are several generations apart. By comparing the DNA of the bodies with the DNA of near relatives of the Romanovs alive today, scientists concluded that the bodies were indeed those of the last Tsar and his family.

They didn't spare the lives of the children in fear that the children would eventually overthrow the revolutionaries and rule Russia again
