On My Anastasia Kick Again…

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Oct-22-2001

Every few months, I start re-reading all of my ‘she-really-was-Anastasia’ books again. Oddly enough , I find them more interesting now that DNA tests have proven that Anna Anderson was Franziska Schanzkowska, basic polish peasant.

Top book is Peter Kurth’s Anastasia : The Riddle of Anna Anderson
followed by the somewhat far-fetched The File on the Tsar
by Anthony Summers.

And I always end up the marathon with Robert K. Massie’s The Romanovs : The Final Chapter .

  1. Peter Kurth Said,

    You should take a look at my “Anastasia” webpage:


  2. Tiina from Finland Said,

    I hope that some day the world will finally find out whether she really was Anastasia or not.

    Greetings from Finland!

  3. Ciara Said,

    Hmmm…it’s something that will never be solved. Thing is, when they found the Romanov bones that have been DNA tested and compared to the Duke of Edinburgh’s DNA (hence proving their authenticity and closing the mystery)…well, it was said that Anastasia’s remains were found there. It was the Grand Duchess Maria (the second youngest daughter) whose body was never found….
