haha oh Rasputin. what an interesting guy. did you know they tried to kill him a few times but he kept coming back? thats a pretty crazy story.
I think its rediculous how the Romanov family believed he was healing Aleksei's (I don't know if that is the correct spelling) hemophilia. Although given the state of Russia at the time (isolation from advancemnt in general) I suppose it is understandable that they would think something like that.
This was well written, it summed up Rasputin nicely (especially for only 6 words!)

Rasputin is fascinating.
This is pretty neat.
A six word story.
You chose an excellent topic.
Great work!

I love this guy. I just watched a History Channel thing on him. Truly a man in history that isn't talked about as much, but should be. Way to fit this into six words. Here's to hopin' you win the contest.
