June 13, 1918 – near the Russian city of Perm, Bolsheviks murdered the first member of the Russian Imperial family, who was none other than the Grand Duke Michael, in whose favor Emperor Nicholas II abdicated the throne in the spring of 1917. Though Michael did not accept the throne, he was, according to some historians and jurists, factually the last possessor of the Russian throne. Thus the Romanov dynasty began with Michael and ended with Michael. In some sense, we can consider this as a symbolic end of the Old Russia. The Grand Duke’s remains are still not found.
