The Last Tsar abdicated on 15 March 1917

  1. 1. Doc’s Mission: Ides of March Travel back in time to Petrogard, Russia 15 March 1917 A.D. The day on which the last Tsar, Nicholas II, abdicates.
  2. 2. 1917 A.D. It is 1917. The world’s population is roughly 1.86 billion, although the First World War, the War to End All Wars for the glass is half full people, was taking a chunk out of that; J.R.R. Tolkien begins writing The Book of Lost Tales; in the U.S. imprisoned suffragettes from the Silent Sentinels are beaten in what became known as the Night of Terror; the first Pulitzer prizes are awarded; Mata Hari is arrested for spying; John F. Kennedy was born; a race riot in St. Louis leaves 250 dead. Some things change; some don’t.
  3. 3. Doc’s Mission: Ides of March For his 24-hour bubble in time, Doc finds himself at the Imperial Palace in Petrograd with the Tsarina and her children. Apparently his mission is to protect her and keep her from convincing the Tsar not to abdicate. But some have other plans.
  4. 4. Rasputin’s Prophecy “I feel that I shall leave life before January 1st. I wish to make known to the Russian people, to Papa (the Tsar), to the Russian Mother (the Tsarina) and to the Children what they must understand. The Russian Tsar, you will be killed by the Russian people and the people will be cursed and will serve as the devil’s weapon killing each other everywhere. Three times for 25 years they will destroy the Russian people and the orthodox faith and the Russian land will die. I shall be killed. I am no longer among the living. Pray, pray, be strong, and think of your blessed family.” Assassinated 30 December 1916
  5. 5. Doc’s Mission: Ides of March The Tsarina has her own plans, though. And Doc, bearing an icon from the recently murdered Rasputin, must walk a delicate line between science and prophecy.
