Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

In Chapter 3, we learn that Tsar Alexander and Empress Marie are initially opposed to Nicholas' match with Alix of Hesse (later Alexandra) because they are anti-German. Analyze and explain how their opposition to this match--and her nation of origin--foreshadow the difficulty Alexandra has with her in-laws during the first few months of her marriage, her problems fitting into Russian society, as well as Russian hatred of her during World War I. Support your arguments from the text.

Essay Topic 2

Analyze and demonstrate how the assassination of Austria's Archduke Ferdinand by Serbian revolutionary Gabriel Princip, which leads to World War I, contribute to the downfall of the Russian military and, ultimately, the monarchy. Support your statements with the text.

Essay Topic 3

Compare and contrast the characteristics of Russia's autocratic monarchy with those of its constitutional monarchy, and analyze whether or not Nicholas' attempt to hold onto as much autocracy as possible after the passage of the Imperial Manifesto contributes to the end of the Romanov dynasty and, therefore, Russia's monarchy. Back up your work with examples from the text.
