The Fall of the House of Romanov

The House of Romanov ruled Russia for over 300 years, but it was at their decline that things really got interesting. They were like the Kardashians, but with even more vodka.

The events surrounding the family's execution at the end of their imperial rule served as the inspiration for the '90s animated feature Anastasia, and plenty of characters involved were like real life video game heroes and villains—Rasputin gave us nightmares when we were kids, and we'd love to fire a cannonball through his virtual face in a February Revolution-themed game set in 1917 Russia.
