This miracle cemented Gregor's relationship with the royal family, especially with the Tsarista, who was grateful to Gregor for her child's life. Once Winter felt he was in the Tsar's good graces, he did away with the Tsarista and her young son by making it look like they had been murdered by one of the boyars. Outraged, the Tsar slowly removed all of the established nobility from his inner circle, until only Gregor remained.
