He could have become a really enlightened monarch and brought Russia to the rails of the common European civilization. Fyodor Alekseyevich Romanov had everything to do that, except for health. When he ascended the throne, many people would say: “He will not live long.” And he himself realized perfectly well that he had few time left… The desertion of the throne caused great disturbance among the boyar clans. Tsarevna (Princess) Sophia Alekseyevna made her way to power by using armed guardsmen and became a regent representing two minor tsars, Ivan and Peter. This was a crude lawless act…
The most vivid pages of Russian history and the establishment and consolidation of Russian state power are associated with the eighteen Russian Tsars of the House of Romanov which include such historic names as Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Nicholas I and Alexanders I, II and III. The dynasty ended with the brutal assassination of the last Tsar, Nicholas II and his family by the Bolsheviks in Ekaterinburg in 1917.
The Romanov dynasty played a hugely important role in world history, and the series highlights the life stories and characters of the tsars, recounting their rise to power and their contribution to the dynasty, their merits and their faults, their achievements and mistakes, their victories and defeats in war.
The series also examines the Russian form of Caesarism as a system of state administration — its advantages and drawbacks and how the Russian state changed under the Romanovs rule.
THE ROMANOVS is told in eight epic one-hour episodes using a unique combination of magnificent CGI animation and dramatic reconstruction with careful and accurate attention paid to each period.
