I have no idea what Anastasia is doing or pointing at, but her continuous head tilts look like she's trying to interrogate the woman in front of her.

At this time, fathers learned to their children how to smoke

Tsar Nicholas II jokingly allows his daughter, the Grand Duchess Anastasia, to smoke.


Actually Nicholas allowed his daughters to smoke; giving them cigarettes which they said were gifts, and would smoke them happily. I think there's a picture of Olga smoking too. But yeah, they didn't smoke them jokingly. Maybe for this picture, as Anastasia may have been a bit too young for the time, but I don't think Nicholas is letting her jokingly allow her to smoke in this picture.

There are some photos from 1915/16 with the girls lying in a bale of hay and one of them (Anastasia I think) was smoking. I don't think anyone yet understood the health risks that smoking presented back at that time.

I think that's the picture I mentioned of Olga smoking but no, they didn't know.

Maria and Anastasia would love Facebook.

I'm trying to find the post somewhere, where I talk about what their Twitters would be as it kind of would be the same but with a few differences. But here's one:



Describe all their reactions! I'll weigh in soon but I'm currently trying not to fall asleep.

Tatiana Nicholaievna / Re: Fake Tatiana

Vague resemblance ,but not much . Just another one to add to the collection of rubbish imposters (ie all of them). Isn't it seemingly easier for females to pass themselves off as other females ,as opposed to males attempting to do the same ?

Is there any evidence that this woman even claimed to be her? It's like people calling Larissa Tudor insane for claiming to be Tatiana, but she never did, someone else dragged her into the Romanov claimant pool just because she looked like her.

The ROC continues to:

1. Refuse to recognize that the remains which have been scientifically identified as Nicholas and Alexandra's son and their daughter (we assume to be Marie). As a result, the Church has left the remains unburied and unacknowledged.

and

2. Refuse to recognize that the remains which were discovered in 1991 and scientifically identified as Nicholas, Alexandra, and three of their daughters. As a result, the Family were not buried under their Christian names at their funeral.

The latest news on the subject is ..... the ROC will recognise the remains if 'comprehensive proof' is provided . They are closely involved in the lab investigation - they weren't first time around - and are not in any rush to bring the issue to an end in time for any anniversary (so they say). They want the final say on their authenticity . They are dealing with 'holy relics' and not 'ordinary people' (I beg to differ, but that's another story). They have doubts and many questions that need answering  . They are still questioning how the Tsar can have had such appalling teeth ! Yes , really . Have they not read accounts of his aversion to dentistry and his chain smoking ? Or any accounts of his personal life for that matter ? One wonders .  On the plus side the investigation seems likely to be completed in 2018.

Unfortunately, many people who are made saints are portrayed as 'angels' in their real lives and have to be seen as pure, innocent, individuals. They may have not been 'ordinary' people-no matter how much they wanted to-but they were people. The Church seem to forget that.

But we all know that she was never Tatiana.

None of them were, at the end of the day.

She bears some passing resemblance in my opinion...particular that second photo.

Certainly more than most of the Romanov impostor claims.

The nose, lips and cheekbones in particular.

Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna / Re: NEW LETTERS about Ella and Wilhelm
« on: November 30, 2017, 04:35:11 PM »
Ella's letter on 30 March 1878 is very different - that is, her style of writing - to her other letters to Wilhelm before and after that date. Has anybody else noticed?

I would think that someone is just "building up a case" here. Is it just coincidental that this "new letter" appeared just when the interest on the subject started growing -a whole year after the first post?

My opinion is that these letters -and especially the last one- is just not Ella. Maybe she did change drastically when she grew up. I don't know. I would be happy to be sure if these letters are real. But comparing them to how we know Ella, she is very different there:

I kiss you, your arm, and where you liked it best,
.

I think (maybe I'm wrong) that she would faint even just at the thought of writing something like that -whatever that might have meant.

So, I'm wondering:

I've got one more letter I didn't share before.

Why now all of the sudden??

I believe Missy is writing a book and she's been given access to new material to help write it?

New pictures and letters turn up all the time; in March this year the original handwritten Act of Independence of Lithuania was found in Berlin, so anything can happen! But can you, Missy, take pictures of said letters? If you could share what they said with us, then I'm sure you can share the actual papers.

Can this source saying she was the woman mentioned in the paper as 'Tatiana' be trusted? It's the first time she's ever been mentioned as a claimant, but I remember reading that Tatiana herself read that article in 1917 and her whole family thought it was amusing.

These usually go in the 'The Myth and Legends of Survivors', but how do you know she claimed to be Tatiana? I typed her name in and the 'fact' doesn't come up.

(To everyone, this Maria was the wife of Alexander Borovsky, a Russian pianist)

Nicholas II / Re: Daily Mail - Romanov Fortune
« on: November 29, 2017, 12:25:18 PM »
The article is long on hyperbole and short of actual facts. The "fortune" it turns out wasn't "Nicholas II's" it was Imperial Government gold being moved for safety from Petersburg as the Russians started being beaten by the German army. The jewels found in the Tobolsk Monastery in 1933 were personal property of the IF, so unrelated to the gold bullion. The "Siberian" orders are utterly unrelated. Essentially a useless article.

Wouldn't be surprised, after the article about them reopening the investigation into finding out if the execution was ritual killing by Jews even when we know it isn't is just...sigh.

Nicholas II / Daily Mail - Romanov Fortune
« on: November 28, 2017, 09:24:15 PM »
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5103369/KGB-file-claims-soldier-hid-26-boxes-Nicholas-II-s-gold.html

Apparently there was a Romanov fortune, just buried deep in the ground rather than in a bank in rainy England.

Also, while I'm posting, they are also for no other reason then to be anti-Semitic, trying to prove that their execution was a ritual killing.

Firstly, Anastasia wasn't a Walt Disney film it was a Fox film the writer could have researched it. Secondly, we don't know what exactly happened between Maria and Ivan Skorokhodov, all that we know is that someone happened that made Alexandra and Olga snub Maria and the guards to change. So they're taking creative liberty with this.

The bad feeling about this movie is getting worse.

They are doing a piece on the Russian Revolution and just got to the part about the IF. It's very interesting. Metropolitan Hilarion who was interviewed said 'There is a very strong chance the Church will recognise the so called Yekaterinburg remains as the bones of the Royal Family'.
