The Kerensky Provisional Government was the temporary government in charge of Russia, after the abdication of Nicholas II on March 13th, 1917.[1]

It was initially headed by Prince Lvov, a relative of the Tsar, and consisted of members such as Paul Miliukov, Alexander Guchkov, Alexei Brusilov, and Alexander Kerensky.

In July 1917, Lvov's refusal to pull out of the First World War made him unpopular with the people, so he was replaced by Kerensky, who was popular due to his political past.

In November 1917, the Bolsheviks seized power, and ousted the Provisional Government.
