The Romanovs (and Reagan) are Dead - Get Over It


Ninety years after being kidnapped and executed by Bolshevik revolutionaries in 1918, it is now official - Russian Tsar Nicholas II, his wife the Tsarina Alexandra, and their children (Tsardines?) Maria, Alexei, and Anastasia - are dead.

The remains of the Romanov parents and three of their children were unearthed in 1999 in Ekaterinburg where it's believed they were taken to be killed.

The skeletal remains of two bodies were found in a burned field near Ekaterinburg in September 2007. The governor of the region Sverdlovsk made public in April 2008, that DNA research has proved the remains belonged to crown prince Alexander and his older sister Maria. Nadia Kizenko, a Russian scholar at the University at Albany, State University of New York said, "It was 99.9 percent clear they had all been killed; now with these shards, it's 100 percent ... Those who regret this news will be those who liked the royal pretender myth."

I beleive that Tsar Nikolai II & Alexsei were shot in yekaterinburg. But Alexandra, Olga, Tatiana and Maria is Lenin`s important card for negotiate with German emperor. So perhaps I think that Alexandra, Olga, Tatiana and Maria were shot in eastern area( for example Moscow? ) from yekaterinburg in 1919? to 1920? or 1921?. Anastasia is Anna Anderson, her colon that tested DNA is not hers.
I believe that opposite group to anna anderson change her colon for other colon.

"Tsardines?" LOL! That made me laugh out loud. :)

People love their theories, Indigo. You can give them facts but facts don't phase them. They love their pet theories just as much - and maybe even more - than they love their pets. Try taking them away by giving them facts and all it does is make them mad.

And for goodness sake, don't go telling them Elvis is dead either! ;)

That's funny, Gayle. I tried to mention Elvis, but just couldn't get it right.

Oh, folks do love their pet theories, like anonymous. In fact, I loved my pet theory. It got away from me one, though. I think it ran off with my pet rock.

Thanks, WHT. We all try to hang in.

Anastasia is still alive and living with Elvis and Adolph Hitler in Argentina.
