you may discuss the botkins and Anna Manahan here if you wish, even with Schweitzer.  I locked the Q&A thread because Schweitzwer was not giving any A, so it seemed pointless to continue to humor his charade.

Yes one can only contemplate his motives for not answering so many questions.

I discovered this topic yesterday and it's amazing to read a lot of things ...
English is not the good language for me to explain you my point of view but i try to give you some elements.
You can trust me i try to be objective for two reason, first i'm not a specialist of Anna Anderson and i was not passionate by this story, second i have so many respect for History (with a great "H") for let some crazy Hypotheses exist ...

Before, i want to thank M.Schweitzer for all he did and i'm glad to read some informations about a part of familly that i don't knew ...
I can imagine for some people here it's a passionate story but please don't forget this is the real life with real person and familly and not a new scenario of an Hollywood's production ... it's very different to defending position before a court than this kind of indictment on a public forum ...

I repaet, i'm not a specialist of Anna Anderson but if you want to make hypothese i can help you for using your brain five minutes.
It seems Tatiana & Gleb met Anna for the first time, after, and only because, there was people who beleived her before them.
To continue and try to help you in your Analyse do you think seriously that they are people with the best position for a Financial interest ? You can see the differents suppositions that we can read ... please imagine what that would be if Anna had won her trial ...

Now i can give you some Facts :
- In my familly I NEVER heard about a potential legacy ... i learn that since i read American resources ... i hope that can help you to transcribe the ambiance in my familly
- Tatiana lived like a nun !! it's not the regard of a lovely great grandchild (that i am but i can be objective also) but the truth ... she had nevermind about luxury and it was her choice !! she had a son with great responsability in France and grandchildren with good jobs but she died in the small bedroom of her daughter's little flat with all the tings she kept to remember her love for the Imperial Familly
- In my childhood's memory, during the hours i spent with her to listen her life in Court, i had never feel nostalgy of Luxury ... she just told me about her proudly to had knew the greatest of Russia
I had read here something about Honour of Botkin's familly ... Yes, i know what is it and i can say you it's difficult, when you are five years old, to understand that ... but that was what she wanted to teach me ... she didn't told me the story like a fairytale
- Popularity ? please be serious five minutes :-) ... There's only passionate people or Exiled Russian who knew who's she was... and her books, for myself, had been wrote for let a memory at her children ...
- About relationship beetween herself and Imperial Familly, i had read her book, and heard her, and i NEVER think that she was intimate with them (my pride could believed that but it's not what she said) ... she let in her books a lot of information that could prove there was friendship beetween the two familly ... Now you can imagine there was intime relationship with a personnal physician. She didn't met Imperial Children every day but you can imagine also that was certainly the principal subject when she was with her father ... there was a lot of admiration and respect and we know the stories of Imperial Familly was certainly like the soap opera the evening with her father.

Now, for myself, when i knew the restults of DNA tests i imagine different things (she wanted believe, political etc ...) but money for me was the last hypothese i can imagine ... and you can trust me, i CAN imagine a lot of things :-) ... but i'm sorry to can not imagine i'm the great grandchild of the brain of one of the most important Trickery of the 20th century :-) ... simply because i knew the person

During my personnal reflexion i told about that with my father (and my grandmother when she was alive) and for them there's no doubt ... she had just really beleived ... i'm sorry for the conspiracy theories :-)
And i know that was the fight of her life ...

But for me, now, it's most passionate and mysterious to know how AA could did that ...


I'm sorry for my horrible English and i hope that stay understandable

Am helping a friend with a research project.  I recall reading, and have found several mentions in the Forum, that Lili's daughter Mary/Maria Hoppe stated that her mother admitted her previous recognition of AA as AN was wrong.  I can't find the original source for this. Can anyone help me find this, or know where this all started?

Thanks
Rob
