The Last Czars Review

Hindsight is 20/20. It can also change the course of history if we are unwilling or unable to make changes while the door is still open.

The Last Czars (2019) is a six-part Netflix miniseries that tells the story of the end of the Romanov family and dynasty. Combining interviews with historians and filmed footage, it is a slow downhill ride towards a fate that could have easily been avoided. Starring Robert Jack as Czar Nicholas II of Russia, Susanna Herbert as Czarina Alexandra Feodorovna, and Oliver Dimsdale as their children’s tutor, it opens with the question of the woman who claims to be Anastasia, youngest of the Grand Duchesses.

I liked this series. It has a nice balance of a fictional narrative based on documented events and experts adding extra layers of historical truth. It is engaging, entertaining, and a reminder that sometimes being hard-headed is not always a wise decision.

Do I recommend it? Yes.

The Last Czars is available for streaming on Netflix.
