Best Answer

The execution of Tsar Nicholas II and his family was a well planned, if not well carried out, demonstration of power by the Bolsheviks. Although the execution of the Royal Family might have given the counter-revolutionary cause a martyr, it also showed Russia and the world that there was no going back to the old ways and that the new Socialist worker's state was here to stay.

Why were the Romanovs killed?

Because the people of Russia were tired of the Emperor, so Lenin and his Bolsheviks killed the Romanovs. Tsar Nicholas II and his family were killed because Vladimir Lenin and the Bolsheviks did not want him to be captured from Bolshevik custody and put back on the throne by the White forces during the Russian Civil War. A contingent of the Czechoslovak Legion was known to be in the area at that time and looking to capture the Tsar from the Bolsheviks. Lenin decided the best way to prevent this would be to kill the entire family, especially Nicholas and his son Alexei so that the Tsar could not be put back on the throne and his son could not be declared the new Tsar.

Why did the Bolsheviks go through so much trouble to make sure that the bodies of the Romanoff family would never be found?

The Bolsheviks wanted to ensure that the Romanov family would not be looked upon as martyrs and that the Bolsheviks would not be looked upon as cold blooded murderers. Prior to the October Bolshevik revolution, it was expected that the Tsar and his family would be exiled to Great Britain. The outright murder of the Tsar and his family could have turned public opinion and support away from the Bolsheviks and toward the forces fighting to oust them.
