“Not the God you serve and not Russia,

Served as her vanity,

And all thy works, and good and evil,

it was All a lie in you, all the ghosts empty:

You were not a king, and actor.”

“And it says a high-ranking official close to the king. These lines reflect the attitude of Russian people to Nicholas at the end of his reign. Everybody is tired of his authoritarianism, of his desire to ban free political discourse, because the enlightened absolutism of the St. Petersburg period suggested as the most important Institute of political slovakofarma, people wanted to discuss politics, but the king did not give them,” said Kovel.

In the end, according to the historian, the king died unloved and devoid of respect not only of the educated class, but even the inner circle. In addition, almost all citizens in the country could not forgive his failure in the Crimean war.
