Our World - 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."

Guys y'all need to wake up and smell the roses,all of them were killed none
survived, because even though some of the girls got back up,they were hit
with bayonetts and with the guns that their executioners had,and even if
they were just in komas,they were immediately thrown into a shaft with bags
over their heads ,and were burnt okay my gosh . however their still is

Tsar Nicholas II, Alexandra, their four daughters - grand duchesses
Anastasia, Maria, Olga and Tatiana - their son the Tsarevich Alexei and
four royal staff members were murdered in the cellar of a house in
Yekaterinburg in 1918.

One night they were lined up as if for a family photo, and then a Bolshevik
firing squad killed them in a hail of bullets, according to witness
accounts. Those who did not die immediately were bayonetted.

The royal couple and three daughters were formally reburied on 17 July 1998
- the 80th anniversary of the murder. They were canonised by the Russian
Orthodox Church in 2000.

Alexei and Maria are also likely to be canonised before the 100th
anniversary in 2018. Their remains are currently kept at the Russian State

Автор StorytellerMedia ( назад)
But the DNA tests did not convince some Russian Orthodox Church members,
because the remains of two - Tsarevich Alexei and Grand Duchess Maria -
were found only in 2007, at a different spot in the Urals.

The Investigative Committee, a state body, says new checks are needed in
order to authenticate the remains of those two.

Russia plans to rebury Alexei and Maria alongside the rest of the family in
St Petersburg's Peter and Paul Cathedral. But for that to happen the Church
wants to be certain about the remains.

Автор StorytellerMedia ( назад)
Russian investigators have exhumed the remains of the last tsar and his
wife, as they re-examine their 1918 murders.

Samples were taken from Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra, and from the
bloodstained uniform of Alexander II, Nicholas's grandfather, killed in

The Romanov family members, who were killed by revolutionary Bolsheviks,
are buried at a St Petersburg cathedral.

The Orthodox Church wants to confirm family links before other relatives
can be reburied with them.

I don't think she made it up. I think it was HER truth. She probably
believed this with all of her heart. The mind does amazing things to
protect itself against trauma. Who knows what this lady really lived
through. She probably was paranoid if she lived through the revolution.
Maybe she was a member of the Romanov staff, maybe she was just a Russian
refugee who was very mentally ill from her experiences. I don't know, but
DNA or not, it's fascinating. As for the Virginia based Anna Anderson; my
Aunt knew her and she, (Anna), completely believed without a doubt, that
she was The Grand Duchess Anastasia. But as my aunt explained to me; the
idea of her being Anastasia was suggested to her by others. She didn't know
who she was. If you had the choice of being Jane Doe or The Grand Duchess
Anastasia, which would you choose. The knowledge she had regarding the
Romanov family is hard explain if she wasn't Anastasia though and it's not
above any government to fabricate facts (fake DNA results) to suit the
needs of their country. Several staff members were executed with the
family. I don't recall ever hearing what happened to their bodies or when
or if they were found and identified. A very interesting and possibly true
story, no doubt, but one that is also as old as time. Everyone loves a good

The scull of an old lady will be very shrunk in comparison to young lady's

Photographs, especially in old times, did tend to distort faces, especially
closer to the sides of the picture faces would get rounded or stretched by
a lense. A lot depended on how well the photographer copied the negative
onto the photo paper: he could acidentally change angle of photo enlarging
lense on a photo enlarger, or wet photo paper would dry unevenly while
hanging on a string. Plus, overtime photograph itself could go through
process of drying and expending from humidity and drying unevenly again. To
compare skull measurements with such photos or compare photographs to other
pictures, taken by different photographers in different climates is a waste
of time.

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?

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

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.
