* Grigori Rasputin (Russian: Григорий Распутин; 1869 – 1916) was a Russian mystic who is perceived as having influenced the latter days of the Russian Emperor Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra. In this postcard (1917, spring or summer) one can see the dissent the Russian people felt for Rasputin. Here he is  with the czar and the tsarina.

Postcard, 1977.
My collection.


  1. Very little it changed in Russia in the last century...
    The real chief before was RASPUTIN, nowadays is "RAS" PUTIN...

  2. May i know who the cartoonist of this postcard was and if it originated from the 20th century?

    1. Unknown artist.
      This postcard is from the postcard set "From the History of Russian Revolutionary Postcards" (III, in Russian, Moscow 1977). The Russian Revolution is the collective term for a series of revolutions in Russia in 1917. So this postcard is too from 1917 (spring or summer).
