Anastasia Nicholaievna / Re: Anastasia; a reader

Thanks for the responses!

I think the summary Anastasia wrote somehow sounds more romantic than Browning's poem.  

Does anybody know exactly when she wrote the summary? I wonder if Anastasia was 16 years old just like "Evelyn Hope" when she learned the poem.  And, only Anastasia learned that poem?

I found the summary that Anastasia wrote  in Peter Kurth's "Anastasia--The Riddle of Anna Anderson" but in "Note" page of this book, I found it was "Transcribed from endpapers in Trein, The House of Special Purpose"---perhaps more information on the summary that Anastasia wrote is in this book?      

I agree with RealAnastasia. She had talents for painting and writing!

Holly, I saw your website, and I liked the song "Once Upon a December" in your website! I love the songs of the cartoon movie of Anastasia in 1997...

Thank you very much, Holly, Lanie, Robert_Hall, Georgiy!
"A Millionaire Girl" seems a detective story as Holly wrote.

By the way, I am interested in another evidence of Anastasia as a reader.

I read that Anastasia had read a poem by Robert Browning's "Evelyn Hope" and she wrote a summary of the poem and I am trying to read the poem carefully, considering "Evelyn Hope" might show Anastasia's feelings.

Has anybody read the poem?


Anastasia Nicholaievna / Anastasia's Favorite book?

Hi. I am writing a research-report on Anastasia since I am a fan of her and I have read the fact that there was a book that Anastasia liked. Was she the Grand Duchess who read lots of books?

I'm wondering what kind of book, "The Millionaire Girl" (Anastasia liked this book, correct?)written by Arthur Marchmont was.  I'd like to read the book but it was published when Anastasia was alive, and it seems very difficult to take a look at it. I just would love to know the brief synopsis of the book and perhaps some of the fans of Anastasia have read the book, so if somebody can share the details of "The Millionaire Girl," I would be honored. Thank you.  


Anastasia Nicholaievna / Re: Nastya's teddy bear...

I haven't heard about Anastasia's teddy bear but I happened to see a teddy bear of Romanovs in a Teddy Bear exhibition in my country some years ago.

It was a red teddy bear in a Cossack suit that used to belong to Princess Xenia; she was known later as Xenia Leeds, who assisted "Anna Anderson" btw (she was a second cousin of Anastasia&a daughter of Grand Duke George Michailovitch) and the bear had a name; Alfonzo. Princess Xenia met and played with Anastasia...maybe Anastasia saw "Alfonzo" and took a photo with Princess Xenia and "Alfonzo?" Yet "Alfonzo" was not Anastasia's teddy bear...I'm sorry if it is nonsense.

Hi, Alexanastasia,

I have seen the pic of the portrait in a book called "My Anastasia  Memory Book" (Probably also in other books) and scanned it. I am new here btw :-[...can you see the picture I'm posting anyway?


By the way, talking about the family portrait in the 97 animated movie, has anyone got a close up of it, I've always wanted to see it more closer... the biggest I managed to get was this one, but you know it's not the same...
