Rasputin: manipulative

Rasputin was supportive of the authoritative monarchy, which would be his recommended style of government. One of his main goals was to build upon his relationship with the royal family; he tried to work his way into the good graces of tsarina Alexandria in order to build upon the amount of input he had regarding the future of Russia. Rasputin's legacy is a very unique one; he is remembered as a holy man. One of his major accomplishments is being able to make himself into a man that could have some sort of input relating to the state of his beloved country. He is believed to have had some sort of healing capabilities regarding Alexis, Nicholas II beloved son (which is why Alexandria adored him so greatly).
