Last of the Czars: The Shadow of Rasputin

After four daughters, Czar Nicholas II and Alexandra finally had a son, the long-awaited heir to the Russian throne; what they kept secret was that Alexei was born with hemophilia. As this program shows, the royal couple’s desperation to save their son led them to put their total trust, politically as well as medically, in reputed mystic Gregory Rasputin. With World War I raging and Alexandra thought to be a German spy by the Russian people, the Czar’s reputation was further damaged by the rumors surrounding Rasputin. Firsthand accounts, diary entries, rare footage, and some of the Czar’s own photographs bring to life this strange chapter in the Romanov saga. A Discovery Channel Production. (47 minutes)
