Not sure where to put this topic, so i put it here, sorry.

Did any of the romanov's survive the massacre in 1918 ?. I'm sure i've read that they couldn't account for them all, though i know anna anderson, who claimed to be anastasia, was a fake.

They're all dead, mostly because the Revolution needed them to be dead in order to remove figureheads around which the White Russians could unify. Whoever ordered their deaths and carried them out would have made quite sure they were all (1) in the cellar and (2) shot and (3) dead.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Their bodies were found and buried in St Petersburg I think. If I remember right, after they were shot and the girls bayonetted, they were doused with acid, thrown into a pit, burned, covered over with earth and planks, dug up, moved, reburied.

So I think after all that they were really dead.

It's interesting that so many came forward claiming to be Anastasia. And even more interesting that people were willing to believe.

Hmmm, I wouldn't be too sure about that. Look at the effort it took to kill Rasputin!  :unsure2:

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

Yup. But you know, if DNA testing wasn't around, you could have Anastasias popping out of chimneys all over Europe. Just like a certain S  Claus.  :ph34r:

When I was young (before I realized that my age didn't fit) I used to tell people I was Anastasia.  That the people I lived with were really servants protecting me.  :P  I was a bit of a pain in the ass.

Well, if the royalty checks haven't started coming your way from Disney, then I think it's safe to say you ain't her!

I was watching a documentary not so long ago where they analysed DNA from the bones in the alleged graves of the Romanovs and the result was a positive match.
