Well, he didn’t really have a lot of choice in the matter.
He took personal control of the war effort, which had caused a lot of deprivation as it developed into a war of attrition. This meant that domestic affairs were left to his wife, who was of German descent and therefore did not have the trust of the people. She was also heavily criticised for her reliance on Rasputin, of whom the people were also highly suspicious.
Events culminated in the February revolution when Nicholas was forced to abdicate………and the subsequent deterioration to the execution (murder?) of him and his family.
