The fate of the last tsar surpasses even fiction with regard to dramatic and tragic occurences, and about a year ago I started reading all I could get hand of (and that's pretty much) about tsar Nicholai II and his family. Tsar Nicholai, his wife and all their 5 children were killed in Ekaterinburgh on the 17th July 1918.
Nicholai had 3 brothers, Alexander died as a baby from pneumonia, Georgi died from Tuberculosis aged 28 (childless), Michail married a commoner and had a son Georg, Count Brassow (1910-1931), who died childless.
So Nicholai's mother Marie (1847-1928) survived her 4 sons, and none of their children had children. But Nicholai also had two sisters Xenia and Olga.
Xenia married Grand Duke Alexander Michailovitch and they had 7 children:
