I love elaborate statuary like this! Out of curiosity, why is there such a statue of Czar Nicholas? Didn't they, like, revolt against the guy?

This is Nicholas I, that was Nicholas II, but I don't get it-- they didn't like either of them, hehe

Was Nicholas I or Nicholas II the one that was dethroned in the Bolshevik revolution? (I get all these kings with the same name mixed up.) Why didn't they like the other Nicholas?

Yeah, Nicholas the II was Anastasia's dad ;) The earlier Nicholas was pretty much just a tyrant, but I don't know much about him.

He probably hasn't had a movie made about him. Maybe that's why neither of us know anything about him.
