The Spirit of Tatiana Nikolaevna
« on: May 07, 2016, 02:13:49 PM »
Hi anyone out there! I was just browsing when I saw this story from the Memoirs of Prince Christopher of Greece .

Prince Christopher of Greece-who held a fascination of spirits and ghosts-claimed to have been visited by the spirit of Tatiana Nikolaevna who cleared up the Anna Anderson mystery.


This is the extract from his memoirs:



Then the lights were turned out and almost immediately the medium went into a trance. […] Then there was silence, broken only by the heavy breathing of the medium. Suddenly one of the trumpets rose from the floor and hit me lightly on the head as though to attract my attention. At first I heard only a faint murmur, then the words came clearly. To my amazement they were Russian.

“Don’t you recognize me?” The soft voice seemed curiously familiar, but I could not identify it. “I have been following you around,” it went on with a little laugh. “I am Tatiana.”

The only Tatiana I knew was the second daughter of the Czar, Nicholas II, and I said so.

“Yes, of course.” I could swear there was a note of triumph in the voice.

“We are all here,” it went on in perfect Russian. “We send you our love and kiss you”–there was a sound of someone blowing a kiss–“and Anastasia wants you to know that the person who is on her way to America is not she. You must tell Auntie Xenia this.”

The voice died away and the trumpet fell to the ground.





To people who don't believe in spirits and ghosts: Freaky that he was right, and that he claimed this because he was correct. :)

To the people who believe in ghosts and spirits: So Tatiana came to tell Prince Christopher that they were all dead and Anna Anderson was a fraud. Why didn't she go and tell her Aunt Olga or Xenia herself? Or did she tell Christopher because he believed in ghosts and spirits and knew he would believe her?

Although the proof would not emerge for decades, Tatiana, if indeed it was here, sure called it, didn't she.

Of course, if Anastasia was there with her, they would know that AA was a phony, of course.

If someone tells me they can talk to dead people, I assume they are either charlatans or deluded .
 Anyway ,Tatiana 'called it' so to speak  in December 1917 in a letter to a friend.
'' There are lots of foolish rumours out there in the newspapers . You probably read them, but it is all nonsense . They even sent us a newspaper clipping which tells of my escape to America ! I hope you did not believe this . I wonder who is wasting their time on such idiotic delusions .''
 Tatiana , meet the gallery of AA supporters......

Interesting. This is an actual quote?
Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

I think its cool if that story about the spirit is true.   One would have to wonder how Anastasia felt seeing AA run around pretending to be her for all those decades. 

Some years back, I wrote  a story short story called Afterlife, in which, after her death in 1984, AA finds herself in the spirit world and face-to-face with Anastasia, who wants to "have a talk with her".  I'll have to see if I can find that story again (its' in my files somewhere), so I can re-post it here.
