Anna Anderson 'Grand Duchess Anastasia"

Anna Anderson was best known as being one of a few supposed impostors who claimed to be the Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia…Anastasia, who was the youngest daughter of the last Tsar and Tsarina of Russia…that would be Nicholas II and Alexandra…she was killed along with her parents and siblings on July 17, 1918 by communist revolutionaries in Yekaterinburg, Russia…the bodies were ‘missing’ and the location of her body was unknown until found in 2007…Anderson claimed that she was Anastasia for many years but most did not believe her or the rest of those who said they were…but Anna was the most persistent of them and became quite well known…after she died in February 1984, DNA tests were run…the official ruling was that she was not the Grand Duchess…although rumours persist to this day that some anonymous scientists found the final finding to be… ‘inconclusive’.
