I loved the Anastasia movie, though now knowing how inaccurate it is I don't love it as much. But that was when I was really young. I got really into the real Romanovs because I was a Tudor fan, and then a Windsor fan as I got into the monarchy beyond the Tudors, and then I kinda got into the Romanovs because they were related to the Windsors.

I remember this cartoon movie, I was 11 years old, I think, when I have seen it, however I think that there is the entire movie in youtube.

Well, I was 4 or 5 years old and I saw the cartoon Anastasia... then I asked my grandma (or my grandpa, or both of them, I'm not quite sure) if that was a real story, and they said that it was a real story, but the real story ended different (they didn't mention how different, probably 'cause I was little). Anyway, I accepted it. Then, when I was 7 or 8, I found my video tape with the Anastasia movie, I watched it again, and I wondered how the story really ended... so I searched in Internet, and I found the story of the Tsar and his family... and when I found out how they ended... oh, I cried for weeks after it  ::) (well, I was only 7-8 years old...) And so, that's basically it.

My story is a lot like tina's.
My dance studio was putting on the musicla Anastasia when I was 5 or 6 and I asked my mom to rent the movie. I then researched the real story online (I was a weird little kid) and the rest is history.
We girls, born as four but live as one,
Look curiously upon a world once familiar,

The blue sky turns to black velvet,
As the storm settles upon our Kingdom,
And with our hearts and hands united
We realize that it is as God willed.

It was our destiny to Love and say goodbye

I was around 7 years old, and a show called Mystery Hunters was on. It was about the mystery of Anastasia and Anna Anderson.

A couple months later, my mom, my sister and I were at a used book store. My sister found a book based on the cartoon Anastasia movie.

Then, in the summer of 2007, we bought the 1997 Anastasia movie. On the way back from our cottage that year, we happened to pick up a newspaper with the Romanov family on the front page. It stated that the missing Romanov bodies were discovered.

At the beginning of that school year, I researched on the computer for songs from the 1997 movie, and I found a video dedicated to the real Romanov family.

And finally, in September 2008, I found Holly's Anastasia website, and after that I discovered Ally's website and learned about all four Romanov sisters. While trying to find more Romanov sites, I came across this forum, and after a month of reading some of the forum, I signed up.

After reading an newspaper article in 2005 about IF. And Anastasia from '97 is also good one.

Well, if memory serves me correctly it was after the first time I saw fox's Anastasia movie  ;D When I learned they actually existed I kinda got sucked into it.
