No communist group overthrew Czar Nicholas IV in March or in any other month in 1917. The communist group then known as the Bolsheviks overthrew the Russian Provisional Government headed by Alexander Kerensky in October, 1917. Tsar Nicholas II had abdicated the throne in March 1876 as a result of the demonstrations, strikes and riots that were taking place in Petrograd and other cities. He wasn't overthrown by any group. He simply lost control of the government and abdicated the throne.

Anyway, the French, Chinese and March Revolutions all overthrew the monarchy of the country in favor of a different form of government. All the countries wanted republics. None gained republics for long. China and Russia turned communist in a Civil War and Bolshevik revolution respectively. And as for France, well, a short man with a short temper took over.
