Our World - In Search of a Lost Princess

Popular belief has, until recently, been that Anastasia Romanov and her young brother Alexei escaped the assassination when the rest of the Russian Imperial Family was murdered during the Russian Revolution. The reason was, that there where always 2 bodies missing.

Today, people are coming to believe that because the 2 'missing bodies' had been 'located', the whole of the Romanov family were killed.

The Russians authorities claim conclusively that that those two missing bodies have been proven, by DNA testing, to be Maria and Alexei.Case closed!

We dispute that claim on several grounds.


When the Tzar and his family were slaughter by the Bolshovics. He was the richest man in the world. His death meant his fortune went to the State, the USSR, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the USSR. The country today known as Russia. There is no way Russia is going to entertain any claim against that fortune. The easiest way to stop any potential claim is for the world believe that no heir survived.

They say the DNA testing was confirmed by international experts. But these experts only had material to work with that the Russian authorities supplied.

Also the Russian authorities do not have a good track record when it comes to telling the truth. Just look at history and the events of today.

In our story the grandchildren of a woman living in South African claimed that their deceased grandmother was the Grand Duchess of Russia. She was presumed to be Anastasia. They claimed she escaped and lived out her life in fear and hiding as a commoner in South Africa.

After exhuming the woman's remains from a secret grave, we took the remains to four universities including Oxford University in England, to test their claim.

Astonishingly the results concluded that is was not Anastasia who escaped the revolutionaries' bullets but her sister Maria. Which is interesting because since this documentary was first aired on National Geographic the Russian authorities say the missing daughter was Maria - but that she was dead and found in a grave with Alexei, as mentioned above. Convenient.

Watch the documentary, weigh up the evidence presented in it and then think about how trustworthy the Russian authorities with so much to lose if we were right.

A multi award winning documentary.

Also worth considering this comment by 13minutestomidnight

"I'm just going to copy my previous answer to this statement.

Again: conclusive DNA analysis is impossible on badly chemically and fire damaged bones buried 90 years ago. The bones might be the Romanovs or they might not be, but it would be impossible to determine by DNA analysis due to the high risk of cross-contamination - particularly from the nearby Romanov mass-grave - and DNA degradation.

Remember, this documentary just showed that complete, whole untouched bones laid in a single grave 30 years ago were already at such high risk for contamination that one per-eminent University wouldn't touch them and Oxford found completely different DNA results for the skull and bones.

If someone had tried to use a DNA analysis of 90-year old mixed bones piled into the same grave and badly chemically and fire damaged in their thesis at my old medical school they would have been failed. How the Americans and Russians got away with it in the media staggers me.

Oh, and this was back in 2007, so no, there was no revolutionary DNA testing advancements that would have made this practicable."

i believe Anastasia was really alive. but because her uncle and the rest of
the imperial family who are after their thrones, they manipulated the
results of the DNA to make her feel like an impostor to the eyes of their
people.. terrible. she was just wanting to introduce herself as the lost
princess, but she didn't have any intentions to take back what supposed to
be hers. ridiculous relatives she has. if the grandmum was still alive, she
can atest to that. because she knew everything that even just the family
should know.

I have some insider knowledge that y'all might like, not that I've ever met
anybody in this clip, but I did live in South Africa for years, and think I
can provide a decent enough explanation for this latest new addition to the
"Collective Anastasia Farces.
Common amongst persons of European ancestory living far-flung corners of
the world, thousands of miles from where their ancestors came from are
family legends about their fore-fathers is the tradition of embellishing
their ancestors importance, with many foreign whites firmly believing their
ancestors were, at the very least, landed gentry.
Here's a good example.....
I lived in a SA town called East London, renamed from it's original name,
Port Rex, a name too contoversial to retain, as it referred to the towns
founder, George Rex, who's father was alleged to have been the lawfull son
of King George III and his (secret marriage) to Hannah Lightfoot, who was
paid off to leave the country and begin a new life in the Cape, an open
secret to local societry at the time. His half-native descendants remain
the true heirs to the British throne. Regretably, evidance for these
legends is somewhat thin, but they do provide a great example of the type
of legend that permeate among Europeans abroad, and its a much better story
than this Anastasia crap (and why aint there no You Tube on this far better
But back to the facts, the Granny in question, I don't believe, ever
intended these claims to be made . She claimed to have been a Duchess, but
not one she choose to name. Well, thats similar to saying that "back home I
was a Princess"....it's not a claim to any title, more a familar way
elderly grannys from a far away country to paint a picture of their distant
past to amuse, entertain and embroider fables from a distant place for the
kids. The grandchildren in this piece also state "They never took it
seriously at the time"....interesting. Then there the missing photo that
might have included Romanov's. Lost, unsurprinsingly, am I not alone in
recalling seeing items in my grandparents home as a child, then seeing them
20 years later, and them appearing entirely unlike whatever memeory I might
have had about that item ?
Then the evidance that Granny Elena was very weary of the police and
advised the children to ensure they never came to the attention of the
police. Well, my granny advised me to do the exact same thing. She wasn't a
Grand Duchess, but she was from Stepney, so no surprise there !!!!

Pierre Gillard, the teacher who knew the fifth children said an a
statement: Anastasia and Maria were talking french, english and russian.
Not german and polish. So, If Anna Anderson was the real Anastasia, why was
she talking only german and polish? And there were reason about defending
Anna Anderson, to get the upper hand on the german investments of the
russian tsar? What languages were talking that other Anastasia. Because,
right now, we are dealing with three possibilities: Anna Anderson story,
the other grand duchess who died in Newport, USA, in 1997 and this south
african. And that might be plausible, since South African was part until
the mid-twenty a german colony? What I founded strange, the bulglar
happened after the death of the other Anastasia in 1997? And why the
Patriarch's orthodox didn't participate to the ceremony in 1997? So, those
are my questions for now ? So, those that mean there are three potential
heirs to the imperial russian throne?

There's a version of that in the Philippines. There was a Russian woman out

They suspect she's from a royal family and they said there was a lof of

Not to be mean Anastasia is maybe died and escaped but then died many years
later Cause it happen about 95 years if she was still alive she will be a
111 years old and the imposter Ana Anderson after her flying to new York
she had like her jaw wide open cause her jaw was broken or something but
after her death in 1984 since then she is not the real Anastasia but now in
Russia they still have a search on still but in 1997 the movie Anastasia
came out to inspire the story. Even though not the real story it will be to
much blood to make it a kids movie in conclusion Anastasia is the missing
grand duttchs

I've watched this several times and find it facinating. Why does the
documentalist assume that only one daughter survived? I suppose because of
the official written account. If this family was murdered then where is
the photographic evidence? I would have thought there would be photographs
taken of their dead bodies so where are they? Anna Andersons court case to
prove her identity was supposedly one of the longest running court cases of
the 20th century so why did she bother with it if she had fabricated the
story. I find it hard to believe that she made it all up and have no faith
whatsoever in the DNA findings.

My Mum was born in 1911, and went to a convent school in Brentwood Essex.
She used to say that Anastasia, also went to school there. I didn't know

The DNA Argument doesn't work, you test this woman's living descendants DNA
against the living relatives of the Russian Romanov's, and the related
British Royal family and German relatives family members, you wont get
100% match but you get some % of correlation or not. If they could confirm
King Richard III identity based on an 800 year old descendant I think a
mere century old difference would easier to prove or disprove any

all this is very sad and the fact remains that all the bodies have been
accounted for so we are told.This story is particularly disturbing because
it is difficult to believe that soldiers etc could have been so cruel to
the russian royal family and that the russian government at the time were
so cruel.The tzar had already abdicated so what threat were they to the
army and governing body.No one deserves that kind of hideous brutality and
treatment. It deeply disturbs me every time i see it knowing that it should
and need not have happened. What is worse , by far the worse, that Our dear
King George should have and quite rightly given them sanctuary in this
country and it need not have happened. He was and should be regarded just
as responsible as those that shot the russian royal family. He for sure is
just as guilty as if he had pulled the trigger himself,and it all could
have been avoided. I hope to god their souls are now at rest, and that god
will hold them very dearly and close to him.

Maybe maria did survive?. Maybe its not her remains?. The photos fit cause
the old lady is maria and that's how she knew so much about what happened.
Since she was so guarded and secretive to a point, then it doesn't surprise
me that they are not her remains. They said she wanted her family,
grandchildren safe, so would you go as far as hiding your body or making
sure that when you die, your body is never found so to stop any proof of
DNA???? What would happen if Maria was found dead or alive? What would
happen to her, her family, her blood???? I believe its maria, I also think
maria is buried somewhere unknown and somehow they have managed to have a
body where she was meant to lay with her husband. She doesn't want to be
found otherwise she would have come out. Let her rest in peace, Let
Anastasia rest in peace. They are all together now as they say.

Автор Hayley Blackrose ( назад)
The guy that was suppose to help the family led them right into a
slaughter. I think the main reason people keep saying Anastasia survived is
because people wanna hope that something good might have happened that
night instead of admitting that there was no survivors and that the family
was massacred. I saw something like this on the history channel but they
claimed that it was Anastasia's body they couldn't find. Now in this they
say it was Maria's. We are being given two different answers in this
mystery..More then likely they were all murdered and while it was tragic
and something that still lives in the hearts of many people, I'd prefer if
Historians would stop trying to create this fairy tale of a lost Princess.
The Disney movie was just that. A made up movie. It was a good. It was
based on a woman who had lost her memory and never gained it back, people
believed she was Anastasia they believed it so much that when she died as
an old woman they put Anastasia's name on her grave. However there have
been claims before that Anastasia's body was found and that its believed
that some of the men took her and maybe Maria too out and raped them then
killed them. Weather that happened or not I don't know. But if both their
bodies were found why are they saying here that Maria's body was missing?
Honestly that's the first time I've heard that one. As for Alexei its said
that he had a blood condition where if he started to bleed it was hard to
stop it so if he got shot he certainly was killed. I'm sorry but either
find the truth or leave this mystery alone! This tale is tragic enough
without historians tossing countless theories of what may or may not have
happened at us along with false hope that Maria or Anastasia survived. It
would be nice if she did and that she was able to live a happy life but we
will never know for sure.. But one thing is clear. Her sons went through a
lot of trouble to hide her body. They clearly thought she was Maria and
that the secret needed to be buried with her.

If I can comment, although all of your musing regarding the bones/DNA/etc
may be true. The fact that she knew the story, as said, before published
ACCOMPANIED, with the fact her facial structure matched up so closely with
Maria ACCOMPANIED with the fact Maria was the supposedly missing body, ALL
TOGETHER is what seems the most compelling. Everyone seems to be mentioning
one, or the other, or the other, but what of the fact of all three? Perhaps
she was just a kook, what are the chances said kook both knew that part of
the story so well AND matched so well in bone structure? Especially given
the timeframe, AND the fact they were in south Africa, even if this story
was known before publishing in suspiciously high detail which match up so
well, how would it have traveled to some suspiciously similarly structured,
height, and age woman in South Africa?! Im sorry but it seems VERY
compelling to me.

The real problem here isn't whether or not this woman or any other was a

anyone currently living to prove anyone of Tzar Nikolai left an heir...that
