On the night of July 16 to 17, 1918, in the basement of the Ipatiev House in Yekaterinburg, the Imperial Family of the Romanovs was shot: Nicholas Alexandrovich, Alexandra Feodorovna, and their children Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, and Alexei, along with Yevgeny Botkin, their personal physician, and three servants. In 1981, the Romanovs were numbered among the ranks of martyrs by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, and in 2000 they were canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church as Royal Passion-Bearers.
