These days I have been send several messages on my Czech blog that Anna Andersson was not Anastasia Nikolaevna..... but Maria Nikolaevna!

Here is a whole blog dedicated to photo comparison of the two (often, ironically, using wrong pictures), if you just scroll down http://tschaikovska.blogspot.cz/

Maria ? I didn't see that coming ! Some of those photos of AA are new to me , but you do a really good job of emphasising the obvious ... she looked nothing like Anastasia or Maria. Ceska Republika .. great place.

I have been swamped by messages and photo comparisons and now I am SO sick and tired of him.... I have presented him with information from various books (notably "Ressurection of the Romanovs" by Greg King, "The Romanovs: The FInal Chapter" by R.K. Massie and also "A Romanov Fantasy" by F. Welch) as well as links on DNA testing, but everything was dismised as made up rubbish and everything that counts are his amateurish photo comparisons. He insists that EVERY information there is on Anna being Francizska is useless because the only photo of Francizska was retouched and made to look like Anna, when in fact she didnīt look like her at all..... Sigh. I am leaving that conversation. Sometimes there is no point.

O_o I always thought that all AA's supporters were fully convinced that AA was actually AN!! ;-) When checking the blog I was expecting to find some kind of explanation about this "new change of identity" of AA but could not find anything (except the photo comparison), I wonder if among the several messages that you received in your blog this person said something more besides the photo comparison. After all, they are contradicting AA's original claim! :-P Anyways, for what I've been reading in the previous posts I see that it is not the first time that Mariaīs photos were used for making photo comparison with AA, I think that some of AA's supporters got tired trying to find some likeness between two women who were totally different.
This  reminds me a lot me the photo comparison done for Maria Martí, at first they start using Maria's photos and at least they make a comparison betwen María Martí, Anastasia and AA!!! Everything is good for them to "prove" their point.

Unfortunately, in the majority of the cases happens the same, this is to talk to deaf ears.

Now he is saying that Maria had the same foot deformity as Anastasia - and on BOTH feet - which explains why Anna ANderson had it. He says itīs clear in this photo



He also says I am simply determined not to see this or the striking similarity between AA and MN.

I decided not to answer any more......

'Anastasiaists' are the most dogmatic people you will ever debate with . No amount of DNA evidence , historical research or common sense will convince them they are wrong . Read some Amazon reviews of Resurrection of the Romanovs for instance. How they hate that book ! 
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. The AA camp don't have such evidence, so they shout very loudly and put their fingers in their ears.

I think it was a case of I Want To Believe.  So many wanted the IF to be alive that, when FS turned up, they embraced her and brushed aside their doubts.
