The Last Tsar will explore the extraordinary life and death of Tsar Nicholas II and his family -- the last imperial monarch of Russia -- who once ruled over a sixth of the earth's land mass.

The exhibition will delve into their private lives through the use of artefacts, documents and photographs — many of which have never been seen before in the UK — to reveal the unimaginable power and wealth which came to an abrupt end when they disappeared at the beginning of the Russian Revolution.

This fascinating exhibition will explore on the huge influence that medicine had on the Romanovs, from treating Tsarevich Alexei's haemophilia B — a rare blood condition that affected her mental health — to the role of their notorious spiritual adviser Rasputin.

It will also reveal some of the advances that have been made which would likely have transformed the investigation into their brutal deaths.
