"The Russian Royal Family"
Introduction Czar Nicholas II, his wife, Alexandra, and their five children were murdered on the night of July 16, 1918. Soon after, rumors began to circulate that some members of the family had survived. In 1921, a young woman in Dalldorf, Germany, claimed to be the Grand Duchess Anastasia, youngest daughter of Nicholas II. After later DNA testing of tissues from Anna Anderson, the woman who claimed to be Anastasia, it was revealed that she was not the Grand Duchess. In all probability, Anna Anderson was Franziska Schanzkowska, a Polish farmer’s daughter who had always dreamed of being an actress.
