Regarding history teachers, realize the Romanovs aren't exactly important insofar as they died and why they died and all of the political ramifications of it.  The only time I've gotten into detail about what historical personages thought, did, what people thought of them, why they did what they did were in advanced history courses in college.  (Example, I wrote a 15 page paper about Anne Boleyn's interest in the Reformation but how she was not exactly an evangelical reformer, and blah-dee-blah-blah for a graduate-level course.  I found a topic that corresponded to discussions in the lecture and got in depth about what we know and don't know about her beliefs and what other people said and why and why I think XYZ historians are wrong.)  In high school, you do not get a big picture, it's just dates and names and basics.  Don't yell at the teachers for not having the same interest you do, because quite frankly this family is a niche historical interest, especially the children and they are simply unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

Regarding this issue I think it's important to realize that most likely all the heights aren't exactly super-accurate since they extrapolated from broken bones and made estimates.  And according to both teams, only Olga was positively conclusively identified by them.  So it could be equally Tatiana, Maria, or Anastasia.  I figure that once we all get more information about the new skeletons we could probably find out conclusively, with all of the children accounted for, who is who.  Even for Anastasia to be missing the heights, to me, make no sense. has an interesting discussion of both team's findings and conclude that the missing daughter may be Tatiana.

When a person has been confronted with stealing my colored pictures, for example, they say oh no, a friend of mine did it, it's perfectly fine!

eBay refuses to do anything, so I refuse to have anything to do with eBay as people are making money off of my creative work (which is, I believe by copyright, MINE).

It's frustrating, but there's nothing one could do about it.

I've recognized my scans as printed 'reproductions,' too.  I don't think I have any legal reason to confront this person, though, considering it's pretty much public domain.

No, but we can infer that she was taller than Nicholas from photos in 1917 but not as tall as Tatiana.  So around 5'7" is a good guess.

There is also this one. It's a part of, but I've never seen it linked from there.

That one's mine, it hasn't been updated in years but that's only the photo albums...which is all anyone ever cares about and trust me it's a doozy to put those together!  Takes hours.

Thanks Rob. People need to listen to logic more often, don't they?

Also thanks to the wonderful Margarita who's been posting all of this for us. :)  :-*

Annie, I think the problem is the height thing is so hit-and-miss considering it's only a rough estimate from bones that were sawed off and so on.  We didn't have full skeletons, and I'm sure we couldn't exactly say, "Okay, this rib bone definitely goes to THIS skeleton!"

Thank you for posting this.

I don't think we will ever know for sure which sister is missing, simply because the height discrepancies and how both teams only positively identified Olga, but it will be wonderful for them to be laid to rest with their family.  Like Bob said it surely won't make the AA fanatics shut up, but who cares?  It's unimportant.

I wonder why it took so long. It's exactly where Yurovsky said it was!

John Kendrick among others will obviously never admit to being wrong about his little fantasy Alexei survived story.

This has all been planned, everyone will see the remains found are not of the two children everything is fixing to lead up to something bigger and even more unexpected than any of the general public realizes. This is just a diversion to lead everyone away from the area or countries where they both died under different names, alexi in 2003 and anastasia in 1988. :-X


Get a life, dude.

Do we have any idea insofar as a time frame for knowing DNA results?
