Okay, I got a few minutes.  But, just out of plain respect and common courtesy I ask that after I post my theory that no one insult me or post bad things on this thread, that is just rude and it forced me to delete a former thread of mine that had my theory on it.

I think that the Romanovs were not assasinated.  I think that that first site that Annie posted actually may have the Romanovs.  Published in a United Kingdom newspaper entitled, The Mail, Charles Arnold-Baker wrote on, (if my memory is correct), September 16, 1996.  He stated that the ship the HMS Lord Nelson was sent immediate orders to pick up to Romanov grand duchesses at the Black Sea Ports.  I researched the ship and I cannot find where the ship was around the time of the murders.  The two grand duchesses were than dropped off in Oran, French North Africa.  I believe that the family split up so that they will not be caught together and met with the Dowager Empress in France, because she always thought that her Nicky and grandchildren never died.  I believed that the two grand duchesses picked up where Olga and Tatiana, being the oldest they could of fended for themselves until they met in France.  To explain the bones, I believe that the bones are actually those of other Romanov and Hesse relatives that died around the same age.  For example, I think it was Alexander I or II when his coffin was opened in the 1920's by the Soviet Government, it was found to be empty.  Could his bones could have been substituted for Nicky's?  Examine the pictures on that site and you will see striking resemblences and I seldom found differences in the comparisons.  Alexei's nose is exactly the same as that of Mr. LoPresti's grand uncle.  That is only my theory, I am waiting for my email to be returned from Mr. LoPresti to see of my story fits his theory.  

That is only mine and my friend's theory, but I would like to hear comments on it, through private messages only though as I do not want to be offended on my thread.  

Now, what do you think happened?

The comment that you made Annie about grabbing straws..what was that supposed to mean?  That left me wandering.  Happy Almost Birthday!  And I too hope and wish that they did survive, but I have not ruled out the possibility yet.  


And AGRBear, I will post my theory as soon as I can find enough time to type it, right now I am rushing back and forth from the computer throughout the house, but I will post it within the hour.

 Another member of the site and I were talking earlier about how people should be more open-minded of the possibilities of what could have happened to the Imperial Family, and so I created this.  I created this thread so that people could post what they think happened and not be laughed at or threatened as I have heard of on one account.  

My friend and I have a theory that we are testing on what could have happened, but I don't have time to post the whole thing.

But, what do you think could have happened, I know the majority of you are going to say that they were all shot and bayoneted in Ekaterinburg, but if anyone else has any other theories please post them.

The Final Chapter / Romanov Death Questions
« on: October 31, 2004, 10:11:30 AM »
I know that this is not a specific question and there could be a million different replies, but does anyone know of a Romanov relative other than Alexei and Anastasia or Marie who was missing from their grave?

I would also have to say Kyril Vladimirovichi.  He is the most ignorant, and deceptive Romanov I can think of!  Although, Ducky was very ignorant herself.

The 20th Century Fox Movie, "Anastasia" also got me interested in the romanovs.  I recorded it on VHS many years ago when it was new, and last year I think it was, I bought the movie on DVD and still watch it frequently, at least once every two weeks  must say.  It is my favorite animated movie EVER!!!  Although I do feel deep, deep sympathy for descendants of the IF because I understand how a movie can offend you like that, I have had a similar experience with a movie that hurt me because of my family.  The song "Once Upon A December"  is my favorite song ever!!!  I have two different versions of it burned onto a cd of mine and also listen to it frequently.  It is quite haunting and very enticing.  If it was not for that movie and that song  I would not have even cared about the Romanovs.  I probably would have considered them just another piece of history.  After I saw that movie, I immediatley started researching them, and I am technically buried in papers after papers, books after books, movies after movies on them.  I am eternally grateful to that movie and I loved every part of it!  Except they could have made Rasputin a little more realistic.  In fact, I think that I am going to get a bag of popcorn and pop in the DVD now.   ;)

Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna / Re: Ella and her Siblings

Okay, that is what I thought that it had meant.  The usage of words in the book confused me.  And that is a really great picture Olga.

Servants, Friends and Retainers / Re: Mrs Mary Ann Orchard aka "Orchie"
« on: October 20, 2004, 08:30:11 PM »
     I am not sure if you have read the book, "The Life and Tragedy of Alexandra Feodorovna."  But, it has a small paragraph providing a little bit of information on "Orchie".

"The nurseries were large, lofty rooms, very plainly furnished.  Mrs. Mary Anne Orchard, "Orchie" to the children, ruled the nursery.  She was the ideal head nurse, sensible, quiet, enforcing obedience, not disdaining punishment, but kind though firm.  She gave the children that excellent nursery training which leaves a stamp for life.  Mrs. Orchard had fixed hours for everything ; and the children's day was strictly divided in such a was as to allow them to take advantage of every hour that their mother could spare for them."

That paragraph reveals a little about her, now we know her whole name, her personality, and the fact that she was married.

Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna / Ella and her Siblings
« on: October 20, 2004, 08:19:55 PM »
I am currently reading the book, "The Life and Tragedy of Alexandra Feodorovna", by the Baroness Sophie Buxhoeveden, which is a really great book.  But I came across something odd in the book.  A chapter of the book titled "Childhood, 1879-1888", and this was written:

"The elder Princesses were fast growing into womanhood.  Princess Victoria and Princess Elizabeth (Ella) came out in 1881, but Princess Alix only heard echoes of their gay doings."

I think that when it says that they came out in 1881, that it is referring to their coming of age ball.  But with the use of the words, "...echoes of their gay doings", I began to wonder.  I have never heard of either of them to be gay.  Does anyone know what they mean by this and/or what years their coming of age balls where?

Having Fun! / Re: Who's your Favorite Romanov???
« on: October 16, 2004, 08:01:00 PM »
 ;D My favorite Romanov is DEFINETLY the Tsarevich Alexei. ;D  Alexei's attitude and his ability to put up with his hemophilia was really admirable, and would have made a very fitting tsar.

Lanie,

    In the third picture, is that Alexei with his arms crossed in the background, or is it a peasent boy?  It is hard to tell because of the hat.

The painting of the ball ia a painting of a ball held in 1913, and I believe that the painting is now hanging in the Hermitage.  
    The picture of Olga and the little child, someone said that there are a series of pictures with also Alexandra, Tatiana, and Anastasia?  I am very interested in this, if anyone has these pictures or has a link to where the pictures are please post.
    I am also interested in the small headshot of Olga, where was she when the picture was taken?  Any background info on that picture?
    And also, in the picture when Olga is wearing her formal dress, she is holding a small fan.  Where is it now?

Imperial Transportation / Re: HMS Marborough

Yeah Douglas,

    That is the ship I am talking about.  I know that the first two ships were not the ones that the Dowager Empress traveled on.  If anybody knows about the other four, could you please post, because I am totally lost about this ship.

Books about the Romanovs and Imperial Russia / The Rasputin File
« on: October 05, 2004, 09:09:12 PM »
Hey everyone, has anyone ever heard of the Rasputin File?  I am not sure what it is exactly, (I think a police report), but it was missing for years, and then was sold in an auction which was bought by an orchestra player and then given to a friend.  If anyone knows what this file contains and/or where it's whereabouts is now, please post.  I would really appreciate it.  Thanx.
