History Fact

Rasputin survived being poisoned and being shot.

Grigori Rasputin was a Russian mystic and supposed holy man. He became friends with the last Russian Tsar and Tsarina.


Over time, he came to influence the Russian royals much to the displeasure of many members of the Russian nobility.


This, combined with his drunkenness and lechery, led to several Russian nobles forming a plot to assassinate the man.


They invited him over to one of their houses, gave him cakes and wine laced with cyanide all to no effect, and then shot him in the chest.


To their horror, Rasputin started to cough and they realized he was still alive!


How did they fix the problem? The nobles shot Rasputin two more times – once in the head. Finally they threw his body into the frozen Malaya Nevka River.
