TheMadMonkRasputin Photo Grigori Rasputin was a Russian monk. He gained a strange power over the Tsar of Russia. It is thought that Rasputin was born in 1872 in Siberia. He wandered the country as a priest and healer, claiming to have almost magical powers. In 1905 he came to St. Petersburg and won the favour of the Tsar and Tsarina, whose son suffered from a rare blood disease. Rasputin seemed to be able to help the boy in ways no doctor could. Through his influence he became very powerful. He used this power badly; he lived wildly, gave the Tsar bad advice and prevented much needed reforms. In 1916 a group of noblemen murdered him.
This quiz is about Rasputin and the people who were influenced by him.

This was an interesting quiz on an interesting subject but my own preference lies with questions not so extremely close to one another that they tend to get picky. I love a lot of your quizzes but not this one.
