• The tragic fate of Anastasia Romanova: firing squad and the false resurrection of
One of the most famous in the history of the impostors were False Dmitry, swindlers, who in search of easy money, with varying degrees of success disguised himself as a son of Ivan the Terrible. Another "leader" in the number of "phishing web" of children has become a family of the Romanovs. Despite the tragic loss of the imperial family in July 1918, subsequently many have tried to pass themselves off as "survivors" heirs. In 1920, there was a girl, I assure you that it is in Berlin - the youngest daughter of Emperor Nicholas II, the princess Anastasia Romanov.
Interesting fact: after the execution of the Romanovs in different years there were "children", who allegedly managed to survive the terrible tragedy. History has preserved the names of 8 Olga, 33 Tatiana, 53 Marius and as much as 80 Alekseev, all, of course, with a prefix of the false. Despite the fact that in most cases the fact of imposture was obvious, the case of Anastasia - almost unique. Too many doubts have been around her person, and too plausible seemed her story.
For a start it is worth recalling the very Anastasia. Her appearance in the world has become increasingly frustrating than joy: everyone was waiting for an heir, and Alexandra for the fourth time she bore a daughter. Nicholas II himself warmly took the news of his fatherhood. Life flowed Anastasia size, she was educated at home, loved dancing and had a friendly easy character. As expected from the daughters of the Emperor, reaching 14th birthday, she has headed the Caspian Infantry Regiment 148. During World War I Anastasia took an active part in the life of a soldier, to cheer the wounded, she organized concerts in hospitals, wrote letters under dictation and send them to relatives. In a peaceful everyday life, she is interested in photography and loved to sew, has mastered the use of the telephone and having fun communicating with friends.

The girl's life was cut short in the night from 16 to 17 July, 17-year-old princess was shot along with other imperial family members. Despite the inglorious demise, about Anastasia has long talked about in Europe, her name has become almost world-wide fame when, after 2 years, in Berlin, it was reported that she was able to survive.

I found a girl who pretended to be Anastasia, accidental: police saved her from suicide, outposts on the bridge, when she wanted to commit suicide by throwing himself down. According to the girl, she was surviving daughter of Emperor Nicholas II. Her real name was - Anna Anderson. She insisted that she was saved by a soldier to shoot the Romanov family. In Germany, she made her way to look for relatives.

Heirs of the Romanov family were 44 people, some of them made a declaration of non-recognition of Anastasia. However, there were also those who supported it. Perhaps the cornerstone of this issue has become a legacy: this Anastasia assumed all the gold of the imperial family. The case eventually went to trial, the litigation lasted for several decades, but none of the parties could not provide sufficient conclusive evidence, so the case was closed. Anastasia Opponents argued that it actually was born in Poland, worked in a factory for the production of bombs, and it has received numerous injuries, which later were given for bullet wounds. Point in the history of Anna Anderson put the DNA analysis carried out in a few years after her death. Scientists have shown that an impostor had no relation to the family of the Romanovs.
