1). royalty.ged NAME Aleksandr II, Czar of Russia. BURI PLAC St Peter & Paul Cathedral, St Petersburg, St Petersburg, Russia MARR PLAC Tsarskoe Selo Military Chapel, Tsarskoe Selo, St. Petersburg, Russia. 81. The Augustan. Aleksandr IV IINikolaievich 1855 1881 . Called The Liberator . The disaster of the Crimean War was attributed by Aleksandr to internal weakness, which was due to the inefficient agricultural system. This he blamed on serfdom. In 1861 he freed the serfs, providing them with land allotments for which they would pay over a period of 49 years. The program of land redistribution was hamstrung by the nobility however, and was never satisfactorily carried out. In many respects, serfdom continued under different guises. Aleksandr IV was a reforming Tsar, and in many ways a liberal one. His attempts to rationalize the jEmpire were not always successful, however, and a policy of reconciliation with the Poles was rewarded with a new uprising. In Asia, a very aggressive policy was followed. The Treaty of Nerchinsk was violated and China was forced to yield large portions of Manchuria Amuria and Ussuria . Most of Russian Central Asia or Russian Turkestan was conquered during this period. Aleksandr s reign was characterized by a great increase in radical political activity, pressure for a constitutional regime, revolutionary sentiment, the Narodnik to the people movement on the left, the Panslav movement on the right, and anarchism. The anarchists took to a futile and useless policy of terrorism. Ultimately, this faction was successful in assassinating the Tsar. The Augustan, Vol. XIV, No.s 5 & 6. Reign 1855 1881 On March 3, 1861, over the strong objections of the landowning nobility, Alexander II freed the serfs and began a program of dramatic reform. He abolished corporal punishment, restructured the judiciary and the educationoal system and denied many of the privileges the nobility had enjoyed. In fact, the emancipation of the serfs brought financial hardship to many landowning families. Tsar Alexander II could not admit that reform had failed and that his regime was ingrained with terror, choking in bureaucracy, drowning in ignorance and greed. He grew more rigid, more craniy, more repressive and now the deadly spiral spun faster and faster. More young men and women arrested more violence against the state more attempts at assassination more assassinations more arrests more executions. Tsar Alexander II was assassinated by revolutionaries. NotesHarrison E. Salisbury American Historian
