It was fascinating to me to see how the canonization of the Royal Family came about. Even though the Russian bishops voted for it, Alexei the previous Patriarch of Moscow was violently opposed to it. But then a Russian physician awoke one morning  on the anniversary of the October revolution to see that an icon he kept of the Tsar was streaming myrrh. It was moved to a Moscow church where many witnessed the miracle and it was even covered on CNN. That was when the Patriarch caved and canonized the family. This is another interesting site on the "Royal Russian martyrs": http://www.serfes.org/royal/anothermiracle.htm
