Was he such a bad guy, or even bad at all ?
He is the queen's lover
Rasputin said you cannot know sin until you have sinned,he was a big advocate of leading a debauched life so that you could then have a platform on which to base a pure life? Does this sound like the rhetoric of a good man, to you?
That's not a fact. He did have a lot of influence over her, part of that was due to concern over her hemophiliac son. And it she wasn't a "queen". She was Tsarina Alexandra.
He was not a good person, and only served his own interests, from all of the accounts I have read.
