The article is devoted to the researching of the circumstances of the last Russian emperor Nicholas II abdication the throne. The authors thoroughly analyse myth in popular modern near-scientific journalism that the monarch's abdication did not actually take place, but a false document with fake sovereign's signature was presented to the society and the whole world. In the authors' opinion, such a conspiracy theory raises many questions and does not hold up serious scientific criticism. Having studied the sources – direct participants' of the events memoirs, the Emperor's diary entries, analysis of legislative acts regulated the succession system of the Russian Empire, as well as taking into account the revolutionary situation in the country, the authors conclude that Nicholas II abdication was his conscious and voluntary act committed for the saving of the Motherland in the bloody war.
