Trivia When the remains of the Romanov family were discovered at Ekaterinburg in , only nine of the 11 bodies were found--the Grand Duchess Anastasia and her brother, Czarevich Aleksey Nikolaeyvitch Romanov , remained missing, further clouding the question of her fate.
However, it was announced that the DNA and other forensic evidence from the remains determined that Anastasia was indeed among the nine bodies that were unearthed from the pit in the forest outside of Ekaterinburg, and that the missing bodies were those of Alexei and one of his other sisters, the Grand Duchess Marie.

Likewise, it seems odd that Rasputin would assume that Anastasia died during the revolution when his last glimpse of her was as he slid underwater to his death. This may have something to do with the fact that she's cast out of the palace before we've had a chance to enjoy her being there.

The doctor performing the operation was so unnerved that he had to be ordered to continue by Maria's mother. Olga Alexandrovna said she believed all four of her nieces bled more than was normal and believed they were carriers of the hemophilia gene, like their mother. Symptomatic carriers of the gene, while not hemophiliacs themselves, can have symptoms of hemophilia including a lower than normal blood clotting factor that can lead to heavy bleeding. His mother and one sister, identified alternatively as Maria or Anastasia, were carriers. Therefore, had Anastasia lived to have children of her own, they might have been afflicted by the disease as well.

Her mother relied on the counsel of Grigori Rasputin , a Russian peasant and wandering starets or "holy man," and credited his prayers with saving the ailing Tsarevich on numerous occasions. Anastasia and her siblings were taught to view Rasputin as "Our Friend" and to share confidences with him.
Anastasia, her sisters and brother Alexei were all wearing their long white nightgowns.
In February , Rasputin sent the imperial children a telegram, advising them to "Love the whole of God's nature, the whole of His creation in particular this earth. The Mother of God was always occupied with flowers and needlework. However, one of the girls' governesses, Sofia Ivanovna Tyutcheva, was horrified in that Rasputin was permitted access to the nursery when the four girls were in their nightgowns and wanted him barred. Nicholas asked Rasputin to avoid going to the nurseries in the future. The children were aware of the tension and feared that their mother would be angered by Tyutcheva's actions.
Tyutcheva was eventually fired. She took her story to other members of the family.
Tyutcheva told Nicholas's sister, Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna of Russia , that Rasputin visited the girls, talked with them while they were getting ready for bed, and hugged and patted them. Tyutcheva said the children had been taught not to discuss Rasputin with her and were careful to hide his visits from the nursery staff. Xenia wrote on March 15, , that she couldn't understand " In the spring of , Maria Ivanovna Vishnyakova, a royal governess, claimed that Rasputin had raped her.
Vishnyakova said the empress refused to believe her account of the assault, and insisted that "everything Rasputin does is holy. However, rumors persisted and it was later whispered in society that Rasputin had seduced not only the Tsarina but also the four grand duchesses. You appeared to me today in a dream. I am always asking Mama when you will come I think of you always, my dear, because you are so good to me This was followed by circulation of pornographic cartoons , which depicted Rasputin having relations with the Empress, her four daughters and Anna Vyrubova.
Petersburg for a time, much to Alexandra's displeasure, and Rasputin went on a pilgrimage to Palestine.
Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia - Wikipedia
In his memoirs, A. Mordvinov reported that the four grand duchesses appeared "cold and visibly terribly upset" by Rasputin's death, and sat "huddled up closely together" on a sofa in one of their bedrooms on the night they received the news. Mordvinov recalled that the young women were in a gloomy mood and seemed to sense the political upheaval that was about to be unleashed. She attended his funeral on December 21, , and her family planned to build a church over the site of Rasputin's grave. During World War I, Anastasia, along with her sister Maria, visited wounded soldiers at a private hospital in the grounds at Tsarskoye Selo.
The two teenagers, too young to become Red Cross nurses like their mother and elder sisters, played games of checkers and billiards with the soldiers and tried to lift their spirits. Felix Dassel, who was treated at the hospital and knew Anastasia, recalled that the grand duchess had a "laugh like a squirrel", and walked rapidly "as though she tripped along. The stress and uncertainty of captivity took their toll on Anastasia as well as her family.
Ther e was a man who loved her without having seen her but k new her very well. And she he a rd of him also. He never could tell her that he loved her, and now she was dead. But still he thought that when he and she will live [their] next life whenever it will be that At Tobolsk, she and her sisters sewed jewels into their clothing in hopes of hiding them from their captors, since Alexandra had written to warn them that she, Nicholas and Maria had been searched upon arriving in Yekaterinburg, and had items confiscated. Their mother used predetermined code words "medicines" and "Sednev's belongings" for the jewels.

According to the blouse the hand must have belonged either to the Grand Duchess Marie or Anastasia. They could not see me through their windows, and this was to be the last glimpse that I was to have of any of them! However, even in the last months of her life, she found ways to enjoy herself.
She and other members of the household performed plays for the enjoyment of their parents and others in the spring of Anastasia's performance made everyone howl with laughter, according to her tutor Sydney Gibbes. In a May 7, , letter from Tobolsk to her sister Maria in Yekaterinburg, Anastasia described a moment of joy despite her sadness and loneliness and worry for the sick Alexei:.
I told the sisters about it so many times yesterday that they got quite fed up, but I could go on telling it masses of times What weather we've had! One could simply shout with joy. In his memoirs, one of the guards at the Ipatiev House, Alexander Strekotin, remembered Anastasia as "very friendly and full of fun", while another guard said Anastasia was "a very charming devil!
She was mischievous and, I think, rarely tired. She was lively, and was fond of performing comic mimes with the dogs, as though they were performing in a circus. In the summer, the privations of the captivity, including their closer confinement at the Ipatiev House negatively affected the family. According to some accounts, at one point Anastasia became so upset about the locked, painted windows that she opened one to look outside and get fresh air.
A sentry reportedly saw her and fired, narrowly missing her. She did not try again. They reported that Anastasia and her family, contrary to custom, fell on their knees during the prayer for the dead, and that the girls had become despondent and hopeless, and no longer sang the replies in the service. Noticing this dramatic change in their demeanor since his last visit, one priest told the other, "Something has happened to them in there.
They helped the women scrub the floors and whispered to them when the guards were not watching. Anastasia stuck her tongue out at Yakov Yurovsky , the head of the detachment, when he momentarily turned his back and left the room. After the Bolshevik revolution in October , Russia quickly disintegrated into civil war. Negotiations for the release of the Romanovs between their Bolshevik commonly referred to as 'Reds' captors and their extended family, many of whom were prominent members of the royal houses of Europe, stalled. The Reds knew Yekaterinburg would fall to the better manned and equipped White Army.
When the Whites reached Yekaterinburg, the imperial family had simply disappeared. The most widely accepted account was that the family had been murdered. This was due to an investigation by White Army investigator Nicholas Sokolov, who came to the conclusion based on items that had belonged to the family being found thrown down a mine shaft at Ganina Yama.
The "Yurovsky Note", an account of the event filed by Yurovsky to his Bolshevik superiors following the killings, was found in and detailed in Edvard Radzinsky 's book, The Last Tsar. According to the note, on the night of the deaths the family was awakened and told to dress. They were told they were being moved to a new location to ensure their safety in anticipation of the violence that might ensue when the White Army reached Yekaterinburg. Once dressed, the family and the small circle of servants who had remained with them were herded into a small room in the house's sub-basement and told to wait.
Alexandra and Alexei sat in chairs provided by guards at the Empress's request. After several minutes, the guards entered the room, led by Yurovsky, who quickly informed the Tsar and his family that they were to be executed. The Tsar had time to say only "What? The rest of the Imperial retinue were shot in short order, with the exception of Anna Demidova, Alexandra's maid. Demidova survived the initial onslaught, but was quickly stabbed to death against the back wall of the basement, while trying to defend herself with a small pillow she had carried into the sub-basement that was filled with precious gems and jewels.
The "Yurovsky Note" further reported that once the thick smoke that had filled the room from so many weapons being fired in such close proximity cleared, it was discovered that the executioners' bullets had ricocheted off the corsets of two or three of the Grand Duchesses.
