The execution of the Romanov family was a pivotal event within the Russian Civil War, when the entire family of the deposed Romanov Tsar Nicholas II was executed save his daughter Anastasia.[1]

During the Russian Civil War, the White Army aimed to overthrow Vladimir Lenin's socialist party and to re-establish Tsar Nicholas II's reign by saving him and his family. However, the Red Army, led by Lenin's Bolsheviks, knew about the White Army's plans and hurried to Yekaterinburg, the place where Nicholas II and his family had been imprisoned, and then executed the Romanov family.[1]

The act was witnessed by the Assassin Nikolai Orelov who managed to save Grand Duchess Anastasia's life.[1]
