Movie Details

The story of the Romanovs, the last tsar and tsarina, is a tale of a handsome ruler, his beloved wife, princes, princesses, a mad monk, and a grand palace, set against a later scenario of brutal murder. Jeremy Irons is the narrator for National Geographic's National Geographic Video: Russia's Last Tsar. Some of the photographs, formerly suppressed, were taken by the tsar himself or his daughter, Anastasia. The execution of the tsar and his family marked the beginning of communism in Russia. Their bodies were discovered in 1991 and positively identified with DNA testing, but the youngest, Anastasia and Alexei, were never found. ~ Alice Day, Rovi
