Aleksandr Aleksandreyevitch Dmitrov (Russ: Александр Александреиевич Дмайтров) (4/10/1912-8/12/1964), better known as Alexander II of Alaska, was the sixth Tsar of Alaska, reigning from October 28, 1960 until his assassination on August 12, 1964. His reign is noted for a series of grand and ambitious social schemes he himself masterminded and a distinct movement toward the Tsar reaffirming his power in government, which was a trend his father and predecessor, Alexander I, had shied away from. Alexander II struggled with his popularity - the elite disliked him for his radical reforms, and the lower classes felt that he was out of touch with their pressing needs. He was assassinated by Marxists while speaking to striking shipyard workers in Kodiak on August 12, 1964
