What actually happened to Nicholas II, the last Tsar, and his family?

This book seeks to explain what did really happen and examines the many interesting 'stories' which have accumulated around this horrific event.

Through an in-depth exploration of this event, the author tells: how the bones of the family were discovered; what was learnt from the scientific examination of them; and, how the bones were re-interred with great ceremony. "The Many Deaths of Tsar Nicholas II" discusses the different variants of the story, the stories of survivors and impostors, the continuing scepticism from some people about the authenticity of the relics, and the huge impact of the canonisation of the last Tsar and his family on contemporary political and religious debates within Russia.
