Wonderful video - very nicely done.  Felt like I was there.  Thank you for posting.

I hope the buyer has them published!  Thanks for posting Inok.

Lovely!  At least the watermark is off her eyes, unlike the one you posted of Maria.  Thanks Ally.

Really beautiful photo of Maria!  Shame about the pesky watermark.  Thanks for posting Ally.

Who is the young man standing with Maria on the beach, anyone know?

That's an adorable little dog.  With some white fur applied here and there in the right places it could be a baby panda.

I thought they confirmed that it was Maria, not Anastasia, who was the missing one, until her remains were found in 2007.
I was under the similar impression that the female remains found in the second location were most likely Maria, but not confirmed.  My memory deceives me here, but I seem to recall something about the development of the collar bone of the remains found in the first grave favored the younger of the two girls.  There were not enough remains found in the second grave to make a definite comparison.  But honestly, I can't recall where I read this.

Thanks NicholasG and JGP.

In her book "The Real Tsaritsa" Lili Dehn refers to her  home town as "Revovka".  I tried to find this on Google Earth and only came up with "Revivka".  Can someone tell me if these are referring to the same place.  Thanks.

Thanks for posting the photo Ortino.  Obviously it's the same room.

Joanna - thanks for all the interesting facts and photos you've been posting on different topics.   I'm a little confused about the photo you posted here of the Semi-Circular Hall.  Is that really the location of this display?   I can't read the Russian underneath, but the photo doesn't resemble any part of the semi-circular hall that I've ever seen unless this is an off-shoot of the hall itself.   Can someone ease my confusion.

Congratulations and Happy 90th birthday wishes to Queen Elizabeth II!   May she see many more birthdays.

I'm no expert on the subject, but from everything I've read about the final night the IF wouldn't have had time to form a FIGHT or FLIGHT response.  It seemed as though the shooting started shortly after the sentence was read so their immediate response most likely would have been FRIGHT.

Any indications why he went to Memphis, and what he got up to there?

Lookin'  for Elvis?   . . . .sorry . . . I couldn't resist.

I understood that to mean that because of her untimely death Anastasia would never have the opportunity grow into the  beauty she was promising to be.   I don't see anything unfair about that statement.
