The consequences of the First World War led to a deep economic and political crisis in Russia.
On 23 February 1917 - the Julian calendar / 8 March Gregorian calendar - the extreme shortage of supplies for the population in particular led to mass demonstrations of the starving population, first in the Russian capital Petrograd (St. Petersburg) and later to a revolution throughout the country.
As a result, Tsar Nicholas II had to resign on March 15,1917. This ended the more than 300 years of Romanov rule in Russia.
