Dolia is an old smallest Russian measure of mass (weight) equal to the weight of one grain of farro, or 0.0444g; it was the basis to all other measures of weight. Was the last Emperor of the Russian Empire , ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of Imperial Russia from being one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. A confirmed autocrat, much like his father, a highly educated, very intelligent, and profoundly religious man, Nicholas continued the work of his predecessors, which brought rapid economic and trade growth. However, he lacked his fathers strong will and was unable to rule Empire with an iron fist. Facing enemies abroad and at home engaged in a yet another attempt to save Europe from itself in WWI Nicholas was overthrown in a coup d'état by his own high command. Coup d'état was almost immediately followed by the first Russian revolution that transferred power to a Provisional Government, which was immediately overthrown by yet another coup d'état that brought criminals like Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin to the top of the Russian power pyramid. In the end, Nicholas II lost faith and abdicated in favor of his brother Michael.
Just one year later, on the night of 16/17 July 1918, together with his wife, Alexandra, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria of Great Britain, four daughters and a son he was executed by communists in the basement of Ipatiev House in Yekaterinburg. Today, a Cathedral stands on the site of the Ipatiev House, where the Romanovsthe last royal family of Russiawere executed. In retrospect, if not for the Tzars abdication, Russia might have survived the unrest, came victorious out of the WWI and avoided some 100 years of communist yoke.
