Rasputin: Dark Prophet
It was a world full of myth, mystery and mysticism at the turn of the century and into this new world stepped a fascinating wizard, Rasputin. He was a master of hypnosis, mesmerism, trickery and deception that caused fits of spiritual excitement among his followers, but was he a mystic or a con man? He mesmerized Tsar Nicholas II, the last monarch of Russia which many say eventually led to the downfall of the last Russian dynasty. Was he ultimately assassinated for knowing too much? This is the story of Rasputin, his deviant nature, and his magical ability to control others.
