Alexander Kerensky, Prime Minister of the Russian Provisional Government, Russia, 1917 Featured 29 Nov 2008 Print

Alexander Kerensky, Prime Minister of the Russian Provisional Government, Russia, 1917

Alexander Kerensky, Prime Minister of the Russian Provisional Government, in his office in the Winter Palace in Petrograd (St Petersburg), Russia, 1917. Kerensky Kerensky (1881-1970) was one of the most prominent leaders of the February Revolution in Russia in 1917, which led to the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II. In the Provisional Government established after the revolution, he held the posts of Minister for Justice, then Minister for War, and, from July, Prime Minister. After a failed coup attempt led by General Kornilov in August, he also appointed himself commander-in-chief. The Provisional Government was unstable however, and Kerensky's refusal to pull Russia out of the First World War and his distribution of weapons to the Petrograd workers during Kornilov's coup brought about its downfall. The October Revolution brought the Bolsheviks to power and Kerensky was forced to flee into exile. He lived in France until 1940, from where he was forced to flee again, to the USA, when the Germans invaded in World War II.

Sitting of the agricultural commission of the First Duma, St Petersburg, Russia, 1906

Sitting of the agricultural commission of the First Duma, St Petersburg, Russia, 1906. The Duma, the elected legislative assembly of the Russian Empire, was established as a result of the Russian Revolution of 1905. Tsar Nicholas II (1868-1918), who opened the Duma, was determined to retain his autocratic power over the government of Russia however. Shortly before the Duma opened, he passed the Fundamental Laws, which stated that the Tsar's ministers could not be appointed by and were not responsible to the Duma. Increasing tension between the Duma's members and Nicholas's ministers led to the assembly being dissolved within ten weeks of its opening.
