Strangest Deaths Ever (Views: 158618)

#10 Ra-Ra-Rasputin (Image 1 of 10)

If you were a child in the 90s, you'll have seen Anastasia, so you know who Rasputin was. What you might not know is that this guy was just as hard to kill in real life as he was in the movie. Now, since the eyewitness accounts vary, we can never be absolutely certain as to what happened, but the commonly accepted story is this: worried about Rasputin's influence over Tsarina Alexandra, members of the extended Romanov family potted to off him using cyanide. However, after consuming the pastries and wine containing the poison (supposedly enough to kill five men), Rasputin was still kicking. So they shot him and left him for dead in the living room. But when they came back in to check on him, he was STILL alive. So they shot him again (either two or three more times). And bludgeoned him with a rubber clubbed. And bound him and wrapped him in a sheet and dumped him in the river. And when his body was pulled from the river two days later, it revealed that he had somehow managed to free one of his arms.
