Depriving the king of life – of course, the murder of the murders. To decide on such a step, need a good reason. Why, in the words of a contemporary of the Emperor Paul, the Russians looked at the monarch, as on the menacing meteor, eagerly awaiting his last minute? Why, when the news of the death of the first person in the state, the people in the streets wept with joy, embracing each other as the day Light of the Resurrection? Because he reigned for a very short time! There is a certain mystery, and that mystery was the Emperor himself: the people's advocate and the cruel despot, a reformer and destroyer, my dear cavalier and whimsical tyrant, quick-tempered stubborn and unpleasant.
