The Czar of the Russian Empire is the former title held by the Head of State of the Russian Empire, until the end of the empire in 1948, as a direct response to the Year of Three Czars, with the death of Czar Micheal II of Russia, and the accession of George of Russia, the illegitimate son of Micheal (who Nicholas II had approved to be the heir apparent for his brother, Micheal), and then Andri, who was a nobleman voted upon by the nobles to be granted the throne, but he said he would only accept if the people agreed. This lead to the referendum held to decide the future of the state. The result was a slim (53% majority) that called for a republic to be formed, and the monarchy was virtually abolished.

Nicholas II, Emperor and Leader of all Russias and Its People 399px-Nicholas II of Russia painted by Earnest Lipgart 6 May 1868 4 June 1897 19 January 1940 An attempted coup in 1899 nearly resulted in his death, but he accepted his position as a Constitutional Monarch fairly early in his reign, and lead Russia to its great victory in the Second Global War, despite early setbacks. His son, Alexi, died of hemophilia, so passed the crown to Micheal, his brother.
Micheal, Emperor and Leader of all Russias and Its People Micheal II of Russia 22 November 1878 19 January 1940 16 October 1948 A womanizer before he ascended the throne, his only son was born illegitimate while his wife was still married (though in divorce proceedings) of her husband. This rocked the Empire, and the heavy handed tactics to respond to the Second Bolshevik Revolt turned most of the Empire against him. However, he was able to rally his people in the Third Global War, and died the year of the victory, which shocked and saddened the Empire.

When his father died, he was quickly named the heir and accepted, but riots, strikes, and an attempted coup tried to overthrow him. At last, on 9 August 1948, he stepped down, and his cousin Andri was named to the throne, who refused to accept unless the people agreed. The referendum came down to abolish the monarchy, and George went into exile in France and Germany.
