Religious Figure
    (January 22, 1869-December 29, 1916)
    Born in Pokrovskoye, Siberia
    Birth name was Gregory Efimovich Rasputin
    Spiritual advisor to Czarina Alexandra Romanov
    A number of highly respected men in the Russian Orthodox Church fell for Rasputin soon after an appearance at the Imperial court. A holy man he called himself, which in itself was a fallacy, for Rasputin was neither a monk nor a priest. He was, in fact, a starets, an unordained, wandering holy man.
    He and Alexandra urged the Czar to take total command of the Russian army fighting in World War I, from the Czar's relative, the Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaievich.
    He told the Czarina that if she ever did him harm or abandoned him, that Russia would pay deeply for it.
    Prince Felix Yussupov and other relatives to the Czar attempted to murder Rasputin. He was led to the cellar of Yussupov's mansion and fed cakes and wine laced with poison, but these had no affect on him. Yussupov then shot Rasputin at point blank range and Rasputin collapsed on the floor. When Yussupov went to tell his fellow conspirators Rasputin was dead, they sent him back to make sure. On returning to inspect the body, Rasputin suddenly regained consciousness. The Prince fled the cellar, screaming for help. When Yussupov and Grand Duke Dmitri returned, Rasputin was gone. They found him in the yard crawling towards the gate and proceeded to shoot and bludgeon him. They then bound him and tossed him into the Neva river.
    Rasputin's prophecy about Russia paying for his death came true, the Russian army was obliterated by the Germans in WW I.
    The people of Russia began to despise the Royal Family, and eventually the Communists overthrew the government and the Soviet Union was born.
