One question I have after listening to this episode: why did the coronation of Nicholas II lead to an amnesty? Was this a tradition that continued even tough it was obviously a bad idea? I'm not saying all amnesties, but why pardon those who have ever declared they want to overthrow the government?

Seconding Ben's comment. Was also confused by the amnesty. Seems like the coronation of Nicholas II would be a particularly bad time to do it since he hadn't built up all the political capital of a czar and was theoretically weaker.
