Alexander II (Russian: Алекса́ндр II Никола́евич, tr. Aleksandr II Nikolaevich;  29 April [O.S. 17 April] 1818 in Moscow – 13 March [O.S. 1 March] 1881 in Saint Petersburg) was the Emperor of Russia from 2 March 1855 until his assassination in 1881. He was also the King of Poland and the Grand Duke of Finland.


Alexander’s most significant reform as emperor was emancipation of Russia’s serfs in 1861, for which he is known as Alexander the Liberator.   The tsar was responsible for other reforms, including reorganizing the   judicial system, setting up elected local judges, abolishing corporal   punishment, promoting local self-government through the zemstvo system, imposing universal military service, ending some privileges of the nobility, and promoting university education.


In foreign policy, Alexander sold Alaska to the United States in 1867, fearing the remote colony would fall into   British hands if there were another war. He sought peace, moved away   from bellicose France when Napoleon III fell in 1871, and in 1872 joined   with Germany and Austria in the League of the Three Emperors that stabilized the European situation. Despite his otherwise pacific   foreign policy, he fought a brief war with Turkey in 1877–78, pursued   further expansion into Siberia and the Caucasus, and conquered Turkestan. Although disappointed by the results of the Congress of Berlin in 1878, Alexander abided by that agreement. Among his greatest domestic challenges was an uprising in Poland in 1863,   to which he responded by stripping that land of its separate   constitution and incorporating it directly into Russia. Alexander was   proposing additional parliamentary reforms to counter the rise of   nascent revolutionary and anarchistic movements when he was assassinated   in 1881.
