Color: Color. Baroness Sophie Buxhoeveden told of her sad last glimpse of Anastasia:. 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.
The executioners later came to find out that this was because the family's crown jewels and diamonds had been sewn inside the linings of the corsets to hide them from their captors. The corsets thus served as a form of "armor" against the bullets. Anastasia and Maria were said to have crouched up against a wall, covering their heads in terror, until they were shot down by bullets, recalled Yurovsky. However, another guard, Peter Ermakov, told his wife that Anastasia had been finished off with bayonets.
As the bodies were carried out, one or more of the girls cried out, and were clubbed on the back of the head, wrote Yurovsky. Anastasia's supposed escape and possible survival was one of the most popular historical mysteries of the 20th century, provoking many books and films.

At least ten women claimed to be her, offering varying stories as to how she had survived. Anna Anderson , the best known Anastasia impostor , first surfaced publicly between and She contended that she had feigned death among the bodies of her family and servants, and was able to make her escape with the help of a compassionate guard who noticed she was still breathing and took sympathy upon her. The final decision of the court was that Anderson had not provided sufficient proof to claim the identity of the grand duchess. Anderson died in and her body was cremated.

DNA tests were conducted in on a tissue sample from Anderson located in a hospital and the blood of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh , a great-nephew of Empress Alexandra. They were buried under the names Anastasia and Maria Nikolaevna. Rumors of Anastasia's survival were embellished with various contemporary reports of trains and houses being searched for "Anastasia Romanov" by Bolshevik soldiers and secret police.
Helena Petrovna said she did not recognize the girl and the guard took her away. A few days after they had been murdered, the German government sent several telegrams to Russia demanding "the safety of the princesses of German blood". Russia had recently signed a peace treaty with the Germans, and did not want to upset them by letting them know the women were dead, so they told them they had been moved to a safer location.
In another incident, eight witnesses reported the recapture of a young woman after an apparent escape attempt in September at a railway station at Siding 37, northwest of Perm. Utkin also told the White Russian Army investigators that the injured girl, whom he treated at Cheka headquarters in Perm, told him, "I am the daughter of the ruler, Anastasia. White Army investigators later independently located records for the prescription. Boris Soloviev , the husband of Rasputin's daughter Maria , defrauded prominent Russian families by asking for money for a Romanov impostor to escape to China.
Soloviev also found young women willing to masquerade as one of the grand duchesses to assist in deceiving the families he had defrauded. Some biographers' accounts speculated that the opportunity for one or more of the guards to rescue a survivor existed. Yakov Yurovsky demanded that the guards come to his office and turn over items they had stolen following the murder. There was reportedly a span of time when the bodies of the victims were left largely unattended in the truck, in the basement and in the corridor of the house.
Some guards who had not participated in the murders and had been sympathetic to the grand duchesses were reportedly left in the basement with the bodies. In , the presumed burial site of the imperial family and their servants was excavated in the woods outside Yekaterinburg.
The grave had been found nearly a decade earlier, but was kept hidden by its discoverers from the Communists who were still ruling Russia at the time. The grave only held nine of the expected eleven sets of remains. Forensic expert William R. Maples decided that the Tsarevitch Alexei and Anastasia's bodies were missing from the family's grave. Russian scientists contested this conclusion, however, claiming it was the body of Maria that was missing. The Russians identified the body as that of Anastasia by using a computer program to compare photos of the youngest grand duchess with the skulls of the victims from the mass grave.

They estimated the height and width of the skulls where pieces of bone were missing. American scientists found this method inexact. American scientists thought the missing body to be Anastasia because none of the female skeletons showed the evidence of immaturity, such as an immature collarbone, undescended wisdom teeth , or immature vertebrae in the back, that they would have expected to find in a seventeen-year-old.
In , when the remains of the imperial family were finally interred, a body measuring approximately 5'7" 1. Photographs taken of her standing beside her three sisters up until six months before the murders demonstrate that Anastasia was several inches shorter than all of them. The account of the "Yurovsky Note" indicated that two of the bodies were removed from the main grave and cremated at an undisclosed area in order to further disguise the burials of the Tsar and his retinue, if the remains were discovered by the Whites, since the body count would not be correct.
Searches of the area in subsequent years failed to turn up a cremation site or the remains of the two missing Romanov children. However, on August 23, , a Russian archaeologist announced the discovery of two burned, partial skeletons at a bonfire site near Yekaterinburg that appeared to match the site described in Yurovsky's memoirs. The archaeologists said the bones were from a boy who was roughly between the ages of ten and thirteen years at the time of his death and of a young woman who was roughly between the ages of eighteen and twenty-three years old.
Anastasia was seventeen years and one month old at the time of the assassination, while her sister Maria was nineteen years, one month old and her brother Alexei was two weeks shy of his fourteenth birthday. Anastasia's elder sisters Olga and Tatiana were twenty-two and twenty-one years old respectively at the time of the assassination. Along with the remains of the two bodies, archaeologists found "shards of a container of sulfuric acid , nails, metal strips from a wooden box, and bullets of various caliber".
The site was initially found with metal detectors and by using metal rods as probes. DNA testing by multiple international laboratories including the Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory and Innsbruck Medical University confirmed that the remains belong to the Tsarevich Alexei and to one of his sisters, proving conclusively that all family members, including Anastasia, died in The parents and all five children are now accounted for, and each has his or her own unique DNA profile.
In the absence of a DNA reference from each sister, we can only conclusively identify Alexei — the only son of Nicholas and Alexandra. In , Anastasia and her family were canonized as passion bearers by the Russian Orthodox Church. The family had previously been canonized in by the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad as holy martyrs.
The purported survival of Anastasia has been the subject of cinema , made-for-television films, and a Broadway musical. The earliest, made in , was called Clothes Make the Woman. The story followed a woman who turns up to play the part of a rescued Anastasia for a Hollywood film, and ends up being recognized by the Russian soldier who originally rescued her from her would-be assassins.
