True love, good intent.
Can they save autocracy?
Say Bolsheviks, ‘nyet.’
They really aren’t adequate replacements for basic competence at your job. And when your job is autocrat, the consequences of being shitty at it are a little more serious than ‘fired without a reference.’
Seriously. Pretty much every action they took from their wedding onward (proceeding with a ball when a bunch of peasants just got trampled outside? What?) was a terrible one. It’s like the historical equivalent of those infomercial reenactments where people are hilariously awful at basic household tasks.
Also, don’t trust shifty, dirty horndog priests.
