this was the overthrow of the Russian government which happened in 1917. Russia entered WW1 in 1914 and by 1917 a lot of people were dying and there was a shortage of food and fuel. People were against sending more men out to war just so they could die so both the men and women started protesting. Everybody hated Czar Nicholas because they thought he didn't care so he was dethroned by the Bolsheviks. Him and his family were exiled to Yekaterinburg, Siberia. It was there in Ipatiev House or the House of Special Purpose where Nicholas and his family were killed by the Bolsheviks in a basment one night on July 17,1918
the people went to protest in front of the Winter palace and a lot of them were shot and killed on the spot. This included several women and children. Nicholas was killed because everybody thought he was a poor ruler, but the truth is he never wanted to be ruler Nicholas' kids were killed because the Bolsheviks were afraid that had any of them lived, they could rise up and take the throne and become very powerful, but the thing about that is only the son could have ruled because females weren't allowed and the chance of him ruling weren't that great since he was born with hemophilia
25 October 1917 is the date of the Russian Revolution (lead by the Bolsheviks), and WWI started in 1914 and ended in 1919. So, to answer your question, no, it was during.
Oh right thanks, but what was the aim of this revolution?
Thank you so much, this is exactly what I wanted.
