Well, we can all agree that the Filatovs are not the Romanovs in general... ;)

I just read this book and thought it was pretty bad. Very weak. And I don't think that Oleg looks anything like Nicholas, although he tries with that beard.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in a pretty and well preserved body; but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow ---- What a ride!!!"

I think that's why he had a beard... ;) But, his facial features are much different than those of Nicholas, or any Romanov I've ever seen. Anyone with that type of beard would look vaguely like Nicholas II.

Dear friends:

I note that Radzinsky mentions the surname of 'Filippov' in his record of the survival of the Heir --an identification which appears to be tacitly supported by HH Valerian Obelensky. One wonders if this might not have been a misspelling of 'Filatov'.  That is not an impossible explanation for the identity of the Radzinsky 'Heir' and the man known as Vassili Filatov --the pseudoym adopted by the Heir after the events of 1918.  I think we all must wait for more information coming out of Russia on the lineal descendants of the last Emperor and Empress --moreover it appears there are also lineal descendants in the west.
