Russian History Trivia Questions

1. 1894, when Russia's last Tsar ascended to the Russian throne reluctantly and began his doomed rule. What was the name of this Russian Emperor?

From Quiz
Russia in Revolution 1894-1924

Answer: Tsar Nicholas II (Romanov)

Tsar Nicholas II grudgingly accepted power at the age of 26 in November of 1894. His nepotistic practices, extreme repression and general distaste for rule would all contribute to his downfall in the early 20th century. Alexander III, Nicholas II's father, whom he replaced as Tsar, is credited with increasing repression throughout Russia, lowering the democratic freedom of peasant communities and initiating increased action against political opponents. Alexander II, known as the Tsar Liberator due to his emancipation of the serfs (enslaved peasants) in 1864 was the grandfather of Nicholas II. Despite his unique wish to increase liberal freedom in Russia, he was assassinated by the terrorist organisation The People's Will in 1881 causing Alexander III to increase repression on his succession. Tsar Peter the Great was Tsar in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, being great due to his construction of St. Petersburg, a Russian navy and vast administrative reforms to modernise Russia. Not only that, but he was the first Russian emperor who established the Romanov family as the absolute rulers of the largest nation by land in the world.

2. The Seventeenth Century has been described as the Age of the Cossacks. What is the usual translation of this term in reference to the people to whom it was applied?

From Quiz Go East, Young Cossack!

Answer: Free people

In a feudal society, most people had a standing defined by the duties they owed to others, and that others owed to them. The Cossack groups that developed into autonomous communities in southern Russian and Ukraine did not fit into that social structure. In defense of their independence, they developed into military communities. In many ways, their social structure resembled that of the seafaring pirates, but their activities were land-based. Having them onside was of great assistance for the Tsars trying to expand the territory which they controlled, spreading eastwards from Europe across the top of Asia to the Pacific Ocean.

3. The USSR had been slowly stagnating for years. One of the reasons for this was:

From Quiz The Dying Bear: The Collapse of the Soviet Union

Answer: The structure of industrial planning hadn't changed since Stalin died

In the Soviet Union, strict control of the economy was maintained by GOSPLAN, a committee of Communists in charge of setting targets on everything created by industry, from tanks to bras. This policy had first been implemented by Stalin and nobody had bothered to change it since. Party officials liked having control and the politburo back in Moscow wanted to keep them happy. However, Central Planning proved a problem in the late 20th Century; GOSPLAN simply couldn't adapt to change very quickly. An example of this occurred with the production of bras; GOSPLAN carefully worked out the numbers of the different bra sizes that would be needed. However, their hard work was completely undone due to the changes in physical shape of Soviet women. Despite all their careful planning, their were still shortages in the most popular sizes.

4. What attracted the North American Finns to Karelia?

From Quiz Missing in Karelia, USSR

Answer: The promise of a better life

The North American Finns were booted out of Finland for union activities. They came to North America but were recruited by the fledgling Soviet state promising them a better life. They were also members of the Communist Party or various factions of it while in North America. Thousands settled in the area over the years.

5. According to papers stored at the Head Office of Rolls Royce in Derby, before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, who was the last Russian to buy one of their cars after the Bolshevik Revolution?

From Quiz Russian Civil War

Answer: Vladimir Ilich Lenin

Lenin purchased the last Rolls Royce to be sold in Russia for over 70 years. As it was armour-plated, he felt at ease driving around Petrograd in it without risk of assassination.

6. Nicholas II was crowned the Tsar of Russia in 1894. What did the public call this Tsar?

From Quiz Russia and the USSR

Answer: Little Father of Russia

Crowds flocked to St. Petersburg to see Nicholas crowned. There were so many people, that a police report said 1,200 people were crushed to death as the gathering surged forward to see the Tsar, whom they called 'Little Father of Russia'. He was the last Emperor of Russia. Nicholas II abdicated following the revolution of February, 1917. During his period as Tsar, he was known for regularly rejecting requests for reform. He was an autocrat - there were no limits on his power.

7. Who was in charge of the Soviet Union during the Cuban Missile Crisis?

From Quiz Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, or Gorbachev?

Answer: Khrushchev

In 1963, Khrushchev sent missiles to Cuba, which was under the dictatorship of Fidel Castro. In response to this news, John F. Kennedy, the president of the U.S. at the time, took action to prevent this from taking place. Khrushchev at first refused to order the ships carrying the missiles to turn back, and JFK set up a blockade around Cuba to stop Soviet ships. In the end, the Soviets turned around and agreements were made regarding both American and Soviet missiles.

8. Saint Petersburg was founded by Peter the Great and was the capital of the Russian empire for more than two hundred years. In which year was it founded?

From Quiz History of Saint Petersburg

Answer: 1703

A couple of weeks later he laid down the Peter and Paul Fortress which became the first brick and stone building of the new city. He named the city after his patron saint, Saint Peter the Apostle.

9. Although "Novgorod" means "new town" in Russian, the city actually predates Moscow by almost 300 years. The earliest written references to Novgorod place its founding in ...?

From Quiz Novgorod the Great

Answer: the ninth century (800s)

Historians aren't completely sure which "old" city the people who named Novgorod more than a millenium ago had in mind. According to one version, the city itself was founded only in the 10th century, not far from a nearby stronghold. A 65-ton bronze monument was erected in the Novgorod Kremlin in 1862 to mark Russia's 1000th anniversary. 129 historical figures are represented, including princes and tsars, military leaders, writers, artists and composers.

Answer: Ivan V

20. Which Tsar freed the serfs?

From Quiz Imperial Russia II

29. What was the primary motivation for the expansion of the Tsardom of Russia to include Siberia?

From Quiz Go East, Young Cossack!

Answer: Trade for furs and ivory

While the prospect of free land did encourage the population movement that followed the conquest of Siberia, the original interest was engaging in the valuable fur trade, and the prospect of ivory to be gained from the Pacific walrus. Russians expanded eastwards with much the same energy as American and Canadian settlers used in expanding westwards. The Stroganov family of merchants were major financial contributors to the expansion, and helped recruit the Cossacks to carry it out. During the 18th century, exploitation of mineral resources became a major focus as furs became both less available and less valuable as commodities. The first prisoners were sent to serve their sentences of hard labour in Siberia in 1754 - they had to walk there, a journey of up to three years, during the course of which many died. Siberian prison camps gained a new notoriety in the 20th century, when Stalin reopened the gulag system which had been closed down after the Russian Revolution.
