DNA results confimred for Romanov Remains.

The remains of Tsar Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna have been authenticated by genetic analysis, the Investigative Committee's website reported Wednesday.

DNA samples taken from the bones of Nicholas II have matched with samples taken a blood-stained shirt of Russia’s last tsar.

Alexandra's DNA samples contained the mutations specific to those found in descendents of Britain's Queen Victoria. Alexandra was Victoria's granddaughter, and the genetic analysis confirmed the bone's attribution to the Russian empress.

Analysis was conducted by scientists from Moscow State University and the Vavilov Institute of General Genetics.

Fascinating.  This should put the matter to rest once and for all, for reasonable people, that is.  For others, I suspect it won't.  :-)
