A special commemorative plate marking the eight months that Tsar Nicholas II and his family were held under house arrest at Tobolsk has been issued in Russia.
The center of the plate features the Russian Imperial family, while the images surrounding their photo depict various places around Tobolsk which are associated with them.
The dates on the bottom of the plate reflect their time at Tobolsk, 13 August, 1917 to 13 April, 1918.
