You can use this same strategy next year when you strategically delegate work to the newbies. His straightforward, abrupt manner savoured sometimes of gruffness, while his direct, unadorned method of expressing himself harmonized well with his rough-hewn, immobile features and somewhat sluggish movements.
His education was not such as to soften these peculiarities. A sebaceous cyst on the left side of his nose caused him to be mocked by some of his contemporaries, and he sat for photographs and portraits with the right side of his face most prominent. I was struck by the size of the man, and although cumbersome and heavy, he was still a mighty figure. There was indeed something of the muzhik [Russian peasant] about him.
The look of his bright eyes made quite an impression on me. As he passed where I was standing, he raised his head for a second, and to this day I can remember what I felt as our eyes met. It was a look as cold as steel, in which there was something threatening, even frightening, and it struck me like a blow. The Tsar's gaze! The look of a man who stood above all others, but who carried a monstrous burden and who every minute had to fear for his life and the lives of those closest to him. In later years I came into contact with the Emperor on several occasions, and I felt not the slightest bit timid.
Though he was destined to be a strongly counter-reforming emperor, Alexander had little prospect of succeeding to the throne during the first two decades of his life, as he had an elder brother, Nicholas , who seemed of robust constitution. Great solicitude was devoted to the education of Nicholas as tsesarevich , whereas Alexander received only the training of an ordinary Grand Duke of that period.
This included acquaintance with French , English and German , and military drill.
Alexander I of Russia
Alexander became Tsarevich upon Nicholas's sudden death in ; it was then that he began to study the principles of law and administration under Konstantin Pobedonostsev , then a professor of civil law at Moscow State University and later from chief procurator of the Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church in Russia. Pobedonostsev instilled into the young man's mind the belief that zeal for Russian Orthodox thought was an essential factor of Russian patriotism to be cultivated by every right-minded emperor.
While he was heir apparent from to Alexander did not play a prominent part in public affairs, but allowed it to become known that he had ideas which did not coincide with the principles of the existing government. The union proved a happy one to the end; unlike his father's, there was no adultery in his marriage.
The couple spent their wedding night at the Tsarevich's private dacha known as "My Property". Later on the Tsarevich became estranged from his father; this was due to their vastly differing political views, as well was his resentment towards Alexander II's long-standing relationship with Catherine Dolgorukov with whom he had several illegitimate children while his mother, the Empress , was suffering from chronic ill-health.
On 1 March O. Alexander's father, Alexander II , was assassinated by members of the terrorist organization Narodnaya Volya. As a result, he ascended to the Russian imperial throne in Nennal on 13 March Alexander's ascension to the throne was followed by an outbreak of anti-Jewish riots.
Alexander III disliked the extravagance of the rest of his family. It was also expensive for the Crown to pay so many grand dukes each year. Each one received an annual salary of , rubles, and grand duchesses received a dowry of a million when they married. He limited the title of grand duke and duchess to only children and male-line grandchildren of emperors. The rest would bear a princely title and the style of Serene Highness. He also forbade morganatic marriages , as well as those outside of the Orthodoxy. On the day of his assassination Alexander II had signed an ukaz setting up consultative commissions to advise the monarch.
On ascending to the throne, however, Alexander III took Pobedonostsev's advice and canceled the policy before its publication. He made it clear that his autocracy would not be limited. All of Alexander III's internal reforms aimed to reverse the liberalization that had occurred in his father's reign. The new Emperor believed that remaining true to Russian Orthodoxy, Autocracy, and Nationality the ideology introduced by his grandfather, emperor Nicholas I would save Russia from revolutionary agitation.
Alexander's political ideal was a nation composed of a single nationality, language, and religion, as well as one form of administration. He attempted to realize this by the institution of mandatory teaching of the Russian language throughout the empire, including to his German , Polish , and other non-Russian subjects with the exception of the Finns , by the patronization of Eastern Orthodoxy , by the destruction of the remnants of German, Polish, and Swedish institutions in the respective provinces, and by the weakening of Judaism through persecution of the Jews.
The latter policy was implemented in the " May Laws " of , which banned Jews from inhabiting rural areas and shtetls even within the Pale of Settlement and restricted the occupations in which they could engage. Alexander weakened the power of the zemstvo elective local administrative bodies resembling British parish councils and placed the administration of peasant communes under the supervision of land-owning proprietors appointed by his government.
These "land captains" zemskiye nachalniki were feared and resented throughout the Empire's peasant communities. These acts weakened the nobility and the peasantry and brought Imperial administration under the Emperor's personal control. In such policies Alexander III had the encouragement of Konstantin Pobedonostsev , who retained control of the Church in Russia through his long tenure as Procurator of the Holy Synod from to and who became tutor to Alexander's son and heir, Nicholas.
Pobedonostsev appears as "Toporov" in Tolstoy's novel Resurrection. Other conservative advisors included Count D. Tolstoy minister of education, and later of internal affairs and I. Durnovo D. Tolstoy's successor in the latter post. Mikhail Katkov and other journalists supported the emperor in his autocracy. The famine of — and the ensuing cholera epidemic permitted some liberal activity, as the Russian government could not cope with the crisis and had to allow zemstvos to help with relief among others, Tolstoy helped organize soup-kitchens, and Chekhov directed anti-cholera precautions in several villages.
In foreign affairs Alexander III was a man of peace, but not at any price, and held that the best means of averting war is to be well-prepared for it. Diplomat Nikolay Girs , scion of a rich and powerful family of Scandinavian descent, served as his Foreign Minister from to and established the peaceful policies for which Alexander has been given credit. Girs was an architect of the Franco-Russian Alliance of , which was later expanded into the Triple Entente with the addition of Great Britain. That alliance brought France out of diplomatic isolation, and moved Russia from the German orbit to a coalition with France, that was strongly supported by French financial assistance to Russia's economic modernization.
Girs was in charge of a diplomacy that featured numerous negotiated settlements, treaties and conventions. These agreements defined Russian boundaries and restored equilibrium to dangerously unstable situations. The most dramatic success came in , settling long-standing tensions with Great Britain, which was fearful that Russian expansion to the South would be a threat to India. Peter and Paul Cathedral.
