centimeters , inches, feet... I had the same problem before. well I think that 5,3" and 5'5" is about 160 cm (or 1,60 meter) and 165 cm. But I would have said that she was about 159/160 cm or 5'3. Because at 16 or 17 you're generally grown up for a girl. There are exeption of course. But her father was quite short and I suppose she inherited his short height. Nowadays the average height for girls is bigger than the one at the beginning of the 20th century. But it is just my idea...

I don't think she was that short, I'm a bit shorter than her and a lot of women are about her size, so for me she wasn't short, she was just not tall.

Well... anything below 5'2 is quite short for anyone. Yes, there are a lot of people that tall but it's still very short.
That fact is, Anastasia was short for her age and she hated it. She was around 5'2 - 5'3 when she died and by then her growing was over.

This photo was taken 4/17 Oct 1916 and the girls are not lined up as they are in the next  photo so heights are difficult to determine:


Nicholas II was 5 feet 7 inches tall.

Three months later,  1 Jan 1917 Alexei measured 5 feet 1/2 inches tall.  His height mark is on  a door jam in the palace.

About four months later:

This photo was taken in the Sping of 1917:


All the girls look about the same height as in the Oct. 1916 photo.

Tatiana who looks about 5 feet  6 inches - taller than Olga and Marie but slightly shorter than her father who was 5 feet 7 inches.
Anastasia - shortest of the girls and believed to be about 5 feet 2 inches and slightly taller than Alexei in Oct 1916.

She was shorter than her sisters. She wasn't taller than 1.57 meters.
