The Russian Revolution began as a result of the failed government that Czar Nicholas II ran. It was a wave of political and social unrest throughout Russia, which sparked hatred in people's hearts. It was the result of all the catastrophes that Nicholas II brought: failed leadership, inflation, poverty, hunger, the Bloody Sunday, WW1, Russo-Japanese War, etc. Workers were also upset with the low wages and unsanitary work environments. Family workers were upset and started to have riots and strikes, these riots ended bloody because soldiers were ordered to kill the citizens. Czar Nicholas was abdicated and Lenin, and the Bolsheviks, took over the government. Approximately 7 million people died in the whole Revolution.
