I love You history Rasputin is fantastic fugure in history
Excellent! A great, brief history of the “mad monk” – and what an interesting character he was, to be sure! His final letter certainly sounds like he knew he was being lined up for assassination, and possibly that he either suspected the tsar was behind it, or had influence over those who were. I really enjoyed this illustrated post (and a good conspiracy theory!).
Glad you enjoyed it! This short story barely scratches the surface, of course… but if you’re interested to read more, there’s an excellent book that just came out on the subject. http://douglassmith.info/books/rasputin
