How in the world do you conclude the Anna never spoke Russian? Do you discredit the nurses at Dalldorf as well as the fact that she clearly understood the Russian expert who spoke to her during her years in Untelenghart? She may have replied in German, but clearly understood it. This is yet another myth created to discredit poor Natsya. I don't want to be rude when I ask this, but just how much research have done into Anna Anderson? Please answer honestly.


Caleb - I am now warning you - you have been rude to the FA and now you are being insulting to yet another poster. Kindly remain civil while posting.

Whoops!  Has anyone who worked with him published anything lately?

Hey!

I´m looking for some pictures of Granny Alina - I know she wasn't Maria. I tried several old topic, but the links are not functional anymore. Could someone help me, please? And the site A princess in the family doesn't work anymore. Or is it anywhere else on the web?

Thanks

And I thought that perhaps it would like to see them:)

I know there were about 53 Maria claimants.

But does anybody know, who they were? I mean, why did they claim to be Maria or what happened to them later?
I know about Alina and some Maria Martí.

Does anyone know some other names?

Thank you.

Royal impostors of the murdered Romanovs had to choose the younger ones for several reasons.

First of all, many people change in appearance from adolescence to adulthood - enough so that any dissimilarities between impostor and real (murdered) Romanov could be more easily explained.

Second, most of the older murder victims had family or friends (who survived the Bolsheviks) who would have known them well enough that it would have been pointless for an impostor to try to pass them off as a dead Romanov. Actually, this was also true of Anastasia, but for reasons unknown no one thought to ask her cousin Dmitri (to whom she was quite close) or her mother's friend Anna Virubova (ditto) if AA was ANR.

Third, I think the murder of Imperial children was particularly difficult for people to accept in the 1920's. So, even though more common might have otherwise prevailed, I think some people really wanted to believe that one of the Emperor's children survived.
