Nicholas II abdicated following the February Revolution of 1917. Nicholas II; his wife, Alexandra Feodorovna; his son; his four daughters; and loyal servants were executed by the Bolsheviks on the night of 16/17 July 1918. This led to the canonization of Nicholas II, and his family as passion bearers, a category used to identify believers who, in imitation of Christ, endured suffering and death at the hands of political enemies, by the Russian Orthodox Church within Russia, on 15 August 2000.
