[It also kind of sad, there kind of ruining the image of Anastasia to.

Eh, I wouldn't go as far as to say they are 'ruining her image'.

'Her' image has been skewed and distorted by people from the very beginning. I can't think of much else they could possibly do to ruin any true image she has now.

That's true, I never thought of it like that.

Making Anastasia into a video game character, per se, isn't a problem.

It's a matter of how well she is made into one.

So far, I haven't seen a good video-game version of her.

I think Anastasia would have laughed long and hard  seeing  herself in a video game.
But, I think it's going far in saying her image is ruined. Stuff like that is just funny, and could be fun.
There is so much dramatic about her: AA's case for example. Because this is really in that way that a mentally insane woman stole her identity, her life. And, people still refer AA as being the Grand Duchess. That's worse to me.

I agree. That's the worst thing about AA, she stole the identity of a murdered teenage girl, and even to this day there are people who look at the pictures adn story of that insane old woman and think of her as the Grand Duchess. This is tragic because not only did AN lose her life brutally and tragically, she also lost her identity and her legacy. This is one of the reasons I made my website, and why I appreciate the other sites made as a tribute to the real Anastasia, making it clear she and AA/FS were not the same person.

Actually, I can think of very few people that would walk into a bookstore, see the picture, and think, "Oh, look. It's Grand Duchess Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanova!"

I'd do it...and I'm sure I'd be with either my younger sister or
My boyfriend...both of whom would think I'm a freak.

Well, yes that's because we know about them and people that know us well would too because if you're like me, you've told them all about them.

Lol, I've done that with my sister...and when I was eleven, I used to play all the
Time...I would tell my sister everything, then we'd dress up and be the grand duchesses!

Tatiana's on the cover of Rasputin's Daughter, which gives some people a funny feeling, considering the title! ;)

haha sarushka!!
that shends shivers down my spine haha

So THAT'S why Tatiana had such a different look than the other three!  (Okay, twenty lashes for that one!)

Oh, wow. Both of those covers bother me. Did they not want to fork over some money to get someone to pose for those pictures if they couldn't get something that was actually accurate/ the right person?

A little reenactor girl would be far preferable.  Reenactors are scrupulously careful regarding hair and clothing styles, moreso than movie costuming departments.

It Makes you wander how inaccurate the story is. You think they would notice the mistake? Or know better then picking a random picture!

A lot of that is fiction, if I'm not mistaken.

The book by Meyer does have some fabricated stories and gets the most well-known facts completely backwards which is a little sad but if it were all true it would be a nice book. Sadly, children don't know the difference anyways so I guess that doesn't matter...
