    Reform would of solved most issues, though I doubt russia could of supported a monarchy politically unless they initiated a complete economic and political overhaul which most likely would of resulted the Russian Monarchy stepping down.

    Though the war drastically sped this up.

    If he was Jewish he wouldn't have been killed. He was murdered by Jews. The communist revolution was a way for Jews to seize power and they hand their hand in all the persecution and genocide that went on around that time. You're not allowed to know this, because it makes Jews look like the villains they are and holohoax victims they claim to be. Nicholas Tsar was known as an anti-Semite, in that he didn't want his country to be taken over by the Jews. He was also a Christian, of course after the revolution look what the Jews did to Christianity.

    Hindsight is of course a wonderful thing!

    If he had been even moderately more reforming, that may well have been enough. Even a hundred years earlier the Russian economic system was seen as very backward e.g. by Russian writers. It's also been mentioned that the Tsar distanced himself from his people - his wife encouraged an imperious attitude in him rather than risking him looking soft.

    As for him personally surviving (rather than the title of Emperor) - Britain could so easily have rescued his family but left them to their fate which was rather tragic.
    This. The second part is especially disappointing considering that his family did ask the UK for help and we ignored it.

    I don't understand why the Tsar is always presented as a tragic ruler and that it's a shame he was never able to escape Russia. He was a despot who stifled attempts at making Russia a functioning democracy, against the will of its people. One of the reasons for why his offer of passage to Britain was retracted was because of his huge unpopularity in this country.

    Indeed. It's quite telling that while in revolutions in other countries, counter-revolutionary forces remained loyally committed to their deposed monarchs for many years afterwards (e.g. the Jacobites, the French Royalists, etc), the Russian White Armies could hardly care less that the Tsar had been killed.
