Even after the Revolution spurred the Tsar to decree limited civil rights and democratic representation, he worked to limit From the February revolution to the October revolution these liberties in order to preserve the ultimate authority of the crown. Lenin and the Bolsheviks were keenly aware of this vulnerability and timed their October Revolution to take advantage of it.

Though the February Revolution was a popular uprising, it did not necessarily express the wishes of the majority of the Russian population, as the event was primarily limited to the city of Petrograd. There were great shortages of food and supplies, which was difficult to remedy because of the wartime economic conditions.

The failure of the all-out military offensive in July increased discontent with the provisional government, and disorders and violence in Petrograd led to popular demands for the soviet to seize power. Old marriage and divorce laws were discarded, the church was attacked, workers' control was introduced into the factories, the banks were nationalized, and a supreme economic council was formed to run the economy. Lenin had been living in exile in neutral Switzerland and, due to democratization of politics after the February Revolution, which legalized formerly banned political parties, he perceived the opportunity for his Marxist revolution. The second was this October revolution.
