Tsar Nicholas II (Russian: Николай II, Николай Александрович Романов, tr. Nikolay II, Nikolay Aleksandrovich Romanov) (18 May 1868 – 17 July 1946) was the last Emperor of Russia, Grand Prince of Finland, and titular King of Poland, and the first Tsar of the United Subjects of Romanova. His official short title was Nicholas II, Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias, and later on, Tsar Nikolai II of Romanova.

Escape from Russia
As he and his family were being escorted by the Bolsheviks to Yekaterinburg, they were ambushed by members of the Russian-Greenland Legion, troops from the Greenlandic colony that were loyal to the Tsar. After taking care of the Bolshevik escorts, the Russian-Greenlandics secured the royal family for transport to Russian Greenland, where they were warmly received by the colonial government of Oleg Yurievsky-Oldenburg. After a short time in which the royal family was allowed to rest, a referendum was held on whether the Tsar should remain the head of state of the new state of Romanova. An overwhelming 80% of the people voted yes, and Tsar Nicholas was crowned Tsar of Romanova.
World War Two
Nicholas, along with the rest of the royal family (with the exception of Alexi, who was a second lieutenant in the Army), was evacuated from Peter City when the Vichy French in control of Louisville invaded Romanova through Ludvigsgrad Subject. They took refuge in Anjou, and some vital government offices were also temporarily transferred to Anjou for the time being.
Nicholas died peacefully in his sleep in the Gorunov House, which had been gratefully given by wealthy businessman Anastas Gorunov to the royal family, on 17 July 1946. He was 78 years old. His remains laid in state at the Saints Peter and Paul Basilica for ten days, and he was interred in the same basilica after a High Mass.
Dozens of statues of Tsar Nicholas were erected all throughout Romanova. The most famous was an equestrian statue of Nicholas created by famed sculptor Roman Zhapatovoy, which graces the courtyard of the Grand Palace of Ministers. Another smaller version of the statue is located in front of the Ministry of Defense Building.
Tsar Nicholas and Empress Alexandra had five children.
