About Grigori Rasputin
Grigori Rasputin was a Russian peasant, religious wanderer and mystical faith healer known for his friendship with Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russia and his wife Alexandra Feodorovna.

He was assassinated in 1916 and his corpse dumped into the Malaya Nevka River.
He was the fifth of nine children born to Anna Parshukova and Efim Vilkin Rasputin. He married Praskovia Fyodorovna Dubrovina in 1887 and fathered five children with her.
