 Nicholas I of Russia - LoveToKnow 1911
In January 1822 it was decided in a family council, with the knowledge though not in the presence of Nicholas, that Constantine's petition to be relieved of the burden of the crown, for which he felt himself unfitted, should be granted.
It was not, however, until August 1823 that the emperor drew up the necessary papers, in the presence of the metropolitan Philaret and other witnesses, and deposited them in sealed packets, to be opened at his death, with the council of state, the senate and the holy synod.
No steps were taken to open the sealed packets, and he himself took the oath to Constantine, and, with characteristic contempt for constitutional forms, usurped the functions of the senate and council of state by himself ordering its imposition on the regiments stationed in St Petersburg.

The battle of Bassignano was lost by Constantine's fault, but at Novi he distinguished himself by such personal bravery that the emperor Paul be-stowed on him the title of cesarevich, which according to the fundamental law of the constitution belonged ogly to the heir to the throne.
It was owing to the opposition of Constantine that the Polish army took no part in this war, so that there was in consequence no Russo-Polish comrade-ship in arms, such as might perhaps have led to a reconciliation between the two nations.

 Kate Pickering's BA Essay
Furthermore, Constantine was even less forgiving of Catherine's excesses and personal vulgarity than Alexander, and seems to have associated the republicanism with which his education was imbued entirely with her, and thus dismissed it.
Constantine's reputation among contemporaries and historians alike has been that of a tyrant, obsessed with military minutiae and cruelly authoritarian; in person he was considered rude and boorish.
Constantine seems to have taken an -- admittedly vague and incipient -- position between the two: his view of revolutionary liberalism was certainly in line with that of Nicholas and Michael, yet he seems to have managed to separate this concept from the idea of moral and social progress.

Deviant behavior of Grand Duke Constantine Pavlovich as the trigger of his success and failure (on materials of Russian and Polish literatures)
Constantine Pavlovich Romanov, the brother of two Russian Emperors - Alexander I and Nicolas I – was mainly known for his abdication from the throne in 1825, which led to the Decembrist rebellion later that year.
However, when Constantine was Commander-in-chief of the Polish army (1815-1830), his way of treating (or, rather, mistreating) his inferiors, received a totally opposite reaction.

A party too in Russia itself, headed by the Tsar's brother Constantine Pavlovich, was clamorous for peace; but Alexander, after a vain attempt to form a new coalition, summoned the Russian nation to a holy war against Napoleon as the enemy of the Orthodox faith.
The heir presumptive, Tsesarevich and Grand Duke Constantine Pavlovich had in 1822 renounced his rights of succession, but this act was not publicly announced, nor known to anybody outside of few people within the tsar's family.
