During the revolution, members of the imperial parliament gained control of the country.The army leadership felt they did not have the means to suppress the revolution and Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. It is argued that the social and economic factors were the most important catalyst and the main cause of the revolution. Others may argue that the military factors were the downfall and breaking point of the country. Although the military factors were important and did play a huge role, the social and economic factors were perhaps the more important reason. The military issues perhaps would not have escalated the way they did if it was not for existing social and economic problems at home.
Nicholas II had tried his best to regain people’s support and stop the revolution tide through the reforms after the 1905 Revolution. After the 1905 Revolution, the Tsar still had to face the above problems. In order to prolong his rule, he was forced to reform Russia. At first, he agreed to set up parliament, Duma. It made Russia became a constitution country like Britain.
The new Weimar Republic was born in 1918, its construction was against Germany’s defeat and humiliation at Versailles. The legitimacy of the state’s existence was questioned by many and as a result the new democracy was experiencing threats. Threats to the Republic from the political right were clear in the early 1920’s. The demand for reduction of the German army from 650,000 to 200,000, and 100,000 in 1919 was seemingly too much of a strain for a large number of right wing parties, who began to demand that the Versailles Treaty and the new Weimar Republic be rejected. The leaders of this movement were General Ludendorff, Wolfgang Kapp from the Patriotic Party and General von Luttwitz of the Freikorps.

There were signs of an early revolution in the making when the people had had enough off being ruled by an autocratic government. On January 9, 1905 in St. Petersburg, the civilians of Russia peacefully marched to the palace of the tsar with just a simple compromise in which the Russian government was not very fond of due to the fact that they thought an autocratic government was the only government that could rule Russia. They ordered to soldiers to open fire on the demonstrators killing nearly 1,000 people. Russian’s were furious with this and throughout the year, they went on strikes in which one strike paralyzed the country, which then compelled Nicholas the second to grant civil and political freedoms to the people. The document was known as The October Manifesto.
This event led to labor unrest, peasant insurrections, student demonstrations, as well as army and navy mutinies. Although the shooting was not Nicholas II’s fault, he was given the nickname, “ The Bloody Murderer” and stated that he was not going to make any changes for the people. This was the last major event before the Revolution of 1905 officially broke out. New councils created by urban workers in order to better organize strikes were created called Soviets. During this time, Russian cities were dying because all the workers and peasants were focused on rebelling against the government and seizing the land of their landlords, instead of working in the factories and living the life of a peasant or urban worker.
Tsar Nicholas II wasn’t much of a good ruler for Russia; he ignored the fact that Russia wasn’t doing so good and overlooked the industrialization and nationalism that was occurring throughout Russia.

This caused people to revolt as they needed a good strong leader to help Russia survive. The main leader who started China’s revolution was Sun Yat-sen who believed China should adopt a democratic government if it were to survive. The revolutions led by him eventually led to the fall of the Qing Dynasty in China.

Lenin was elected as chairman. Alexander Kerensky, who had managed to escape arrest, assembled troops from the Northern Front. Led by General Krasnov, the Cossacks were defeated by Bolshevik forces at Pulkova. By December 1917 central Russia and Siberia were under the control of Lenin’s government.
Napoleon then had a son named Napoleon II nicknamed the King of Rome. Napoleon then went for Russia trying to attack Moscow; the Russians used a tactic called Scorched Earth. The Russians burned everything on the road to Moscow and half of Moscow leaving Napoleons men to starve and freeze to death in the harsh winter. With Napoleons prize of Moscow being burned he left Russia only to be followed, have most of his men killed, and soon losing all his territories. Napoleon exiled himself and stepped down from power.
Sir Patrick Hastings, the Attorney General, initially advised Ramsay MacDonald, the Prime Minister, to prosecute Campbell under the Incitement to Mutiny Act 1797. The case was handled dreadfully and Ramsay MacDonald faced a motion of no confidence in the House of Commons over the way he had dealt with the case.
