Alexis was the youngest child and only son of Emperor Nicholas II of Russia and Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, and was only one year old when his father was overthrown in the Russian Revolution of 1905. Alexis spent his early childhood in Germany, where his family was granted asylum by the German Emperor, William II. When Alexis was 13, counterrevolutionaries in Alaska invited Nicholas to form an imperial government in exile. Nicholas accepted, and the Romanov family moved to Alaska in 1918.
In 1925, Nicholas II died and 21-year-old Alexis officially succeeded him as Alexis II, Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias. However, having spent almost all his life outside of Russia, the young Tsar felt no connection to his government's claimed lands, and in 1926 Alexis published a declaration proclaiming Alaska's independence from Russia. He was crowned as the second Tsar of Alaska on 2 February that year. Alexis' proclamation was retroactive, and recognised his father as the first Tsar.
Alexis was born with haemophilia, and as a result of an injury sustained while hunting in the autumn of 1927, he died on 3 October. He was succeeded by his 1-year-old son as Alexander IV of Alaska, during whose minority his wife, Princess Alexandrine of Prussia, ruled as regent.
