Summary
A hundred years after his murder, Rasputin continues to excite the popular imagination as the personification of evil. Numerous biographies, novels, and films recount his mysterious rise to power as Nicholas and Alexandra's confidant and the guardian of the sickly heir to the Russian throne. His debauchery and sinister political influence are the stuff of legend, and the downfall of the Romanov dynasty was laid at his feet. But the true story of Rasputin's life and death has remained shrouded in myth. Drawing on a wealth of forgotten documents from archives in seven countries, Smith presents Rasputin in all his complexity -- man of God, voice of peace, loyal subject, adulterer, and drunkard
