(July 29, 1871 - December 30, 1916)
Grigory Rasputin was born July 29, 1871 in the village of Pokrovskoe Tyumen region. As the place of his birth was almost unattainable for the majority want, then the life of Grigori Rasputin at home remained only fragmentary and inaccurate information, the source of which was basically himself. It is likely that he was a monk, but it is not excluded that Rasputin - just a brilliant actor who perfectly portrays his election and the close communion with God.
. In 18 years, Rasputin made the first pilgrimage to the monastery in Verkhoturye, but vows not given
. In 19 years he returned to Pokrovskoye, where he married Praskovia Feodorovna. In this marriage were born three children - Dmitry in 1897, Maria in 1898 and Barbara in 1900.
Marriage is not chilled the ardor of Grigory Rasputin pilgrim. He continued to visit various holy places, even went so far Athos monastery in Greece and to Jerusalem. And all this on foot!
After such trips Rasputin imagines himself the elect of God, announced that he was a saint, and at every step, telling of his miraculous gift of healing to bring. Rumors of a Siberian sorcerer began to spread in Russia, and soon no longer Rasputin pilgrimage, as people tried to get to him. Many of his patients came from distant lands. It should be noted at the same time that Rasputin was never studied, did not even have a rough idea about medicine, was illiterate. However, he played his role perfectly: indeed helped people, he could reassure those who were on the verge of despair

. In 1905, Rasputin was in the capital of imperial Russia, and in very good time
. The fact that the church needed to "prophets" - people who would believe the people. Rasputin was just out of this category - a typical appearance of a peasant, a simple question, a sharp temper. But foes say that Rasputin used religion only as a smokescreen for his cynicism, lust for money, power and sex.
In 1907 he was invited to the imperial court - just in the midst of one of the bouts of illness, the Crown Prince. The fact that the imperial family hid hemophilia successor, fearing social unrest. Therefore, they have long refused the services of Rasputin. However, when the child's condition became critical, Nicholas surrendered.
All the subsequent life of Rasputin to St. Petersburg was inextricably linked to the treatment of Prince. However, not limited to these. Rasputin gained a lot of friends in the highest strata of society in St. Petersburg.
