Why did the Tsar fall from power
In March 1917 ?
I believe the main reason that the Tsar fell from power was the Russo-Japanese war and the First World War, because Russia lost and it was all blamed on the Tsar. During this essay I will list many other reasons and back up the evidence by explaining why the Tsar fell from power.
As I said in my introduction I believe the main reason which made the Tsar abdicate was the Russo-Japanese war, this started on the 8th February 1904 when Japan made a surprise attack on the Russian naval base at Port Arthur. Many Russians welcomed the war but the Russian army had major problems. Such as finding it difficult to fight a war at a distance, troops and supplies took long to arrive and also the army was badly organised. Two weeks of gruelling battle ended in a Japanese victory. In the end Russia lost Port Arthur and much of Manchuria, The effect of the war demoralised the Russian people. The war with Japan led to many problems at home in Russia; the poor living conditions of peasants and factory workers
