Factual error: The Imperial Family was executed in July of 1918. In actuality, 11 people were killed in Ekaterinburg. These were: Nicholas, Alexandra, Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, Alexei, Dr. Botkin, Anna (a maid), Khartinov (a servant), and Trupp (a servant). However, at the end of the film, only the 7 members of the family and Dr. Botkin are shown to be executed. I realize this film was rather lavish, but if it was intended to be a semi-documentary, all the victims should have been portrayed at the end.
Tsar Nicholas II: The Russia my father gave me never lost a war. What shall I say to my son when the time comes? That I had no pride? That I was weak? I've always thought God meant me to rule. He put me here. He chose me, and whatever happens is His will. We shall fight on until victory.
Count Witte: There will be no victory. Only strikes and riots. You must give your people a little of what they want, sir. Not all. Just, a taste.
