I don't think he was that significant other than being a great advisor to the 2 previous czars, he was elderly by the time the last czar came to power and Nicholas did not seek his counsel much. Pobedonostev saw the political landscape changing and retired. He died a little more than a year after the revolution started and was very elderly and frail by then I think one theory is if Nicholas had listened to him, he might have been able to put down the rebellion and survive. Others doubt it.

Pobedonostsev was actually a hardline orthodox conservative who was one of the tutors to both Tsar Alexander III and his son Nicholas II of Russia. Pobedonostev was hired to tutor both tsars about the important role of the tsar and their responsibility of being tsars, maintaining the orthodox church and the autocracy. Pobedonostev was a very destructive force who taught both tsars the dangers of reform and liberal ideas.
