I read her book a while back when I was younger and it brought me to tears. I believed she was the "real" Anastasia until my brain smacked me one and woke me up.
Here are some pictures of her:








In the book of Eugenia Smith there are other photos?

This shows how even different photos of the same subject can look different and how some people will believe anything:  http://digilander.libero.it/jamespaul/fc1.html

 Hi, I'm really new to the site so am really sorry if  seem a bit dense at times! Years ago my Dad told me that one of the Anastasia claimants was probably a servent in the Royal court as she knew so much about the family and the Royal houses etc. He said he'd read it in a book but he couldn't remember the name of the woman or the book. Could this have been Eugenia Smith? I don't know who she was before she claimed to be Anastasia!? Any help would be appreciated!

 Kisses

BTW, you can read an excerpt from it, it's quite funny. This may be a goof, but maybe not.. Hard to tell with these loons...

Late Czarina Anastasia

Imagine Anastasia really survived (even if DNA said no). But how on the earth could her be a CZARINA?

the only review:

This book was a work of fiction not real life. The actual Anastasia was unfortunately murdered with her family. Also the entire book is full of inaccuracies. The correct title was Her Imperial Highness, the Grand Duchess. She could not be Czarina unless she married a Czar! DNA tests done in the past few years proved the real Anastasia died along with her family. I never heard of the supposed Anastasia unles you count "Anna Anderson". It your looking for fiction this is it and not good fiction.

Judging from the excerpt, i have to agree.

 I have read the excerpt,  and it appears that this is a "self-published e-book"?  Just from the excerpt, there are a number of problems of grammar and punctuation.  Thus I presume there was no proof-reader, other than the author?  I would certainly think that English would be her native language?  
  Added to these questions, there is the, IMO, tiresome and repetitive use of the appositive, "the real Anastasia." As in Shakespeare's words ("Hamlet"),  "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."
  The usage of the word "noble" is very strange, IMO, in referring to the supposed "Anastasia," as opposed to using "royalty/Imperial."
  Granted, this is just a VERY LIMITED excerpt, but IMO, reading would be very difficult with the different "twists and turns" demonstrated thus far.  Still it would be interesting to see the method of the appearance of "Czarina Anastasia" apparently in Wisconsin, USA.  Of course, another poster has already picked-up on the "CZARINA" bit.  
   Ideally, I would hope that this author would appear on this Forum (perhaps a member already, under another name?), so that clarifications, etc., could be requested.  
  In the meanwhile, I do believe that I will "pass" on this survivor/claimant, etc.                      Regards,  AP.


  As an afterthought:  This author mentions a "half sister." Several years ago on this Forum, a pair of "sisters" claimed that they were directly descended from the Emperor Nicholas II.....yes, Nicholas II, that's not a typo.  When challenged on this, they replied that THEY had made a typo and were descended from the Emperor Nicholas I (the First). I believe that the sisters used the name surname "Romanov," though both apparently now had married names. Feeling miffed at our understandably astonished inquiries, they ultimately disappeared from this board.  I wonder if there could possibly be a connection here?  Just my own wondering.   AP.
