February revolution in Russia (1917) largely was the result of the confrontation between Monarch and the Fourth State Duma. Such kind of uncertainty and inefficiency in the administration of the Supreme power in terms of the outbreak of the Great War led to a confrontation between Emperor and State Duma. At that moment the Palace party lost all social support, and the Government could no longer govern the state. In the wake the natural revolutionary events led to the overthrow of the monarchy in general.
