  1. Was Anna Anderson really Anastasia Romanov? Kara Bennett

  2. The Romanov family • Nicholas II, the last Russian czar who ruled from 1894-1917 • Alexandra Feodorovna • Tatania, second daughter • Olga, eldest daughter • Marie, third daughter • Anastasia, youngest daughter • Alexei, only son and heir to the throne

  3. Anastasia Romanov • Youngest and last daughter of the last Russian czar, Nicholas II • Was known as “Her Imperial Highness the Grand Duchess” • Nicknamed “imp” by family • Enjoyed spending time with her family, taking videos, and joking

  4. Romanov family assassination • On July 16, 1918, the Romanov family was lead into a cellar • They were shot and stabbed by the Bolsheviks • Were meant to be buried in a mine shaft, but instead disposed of in a shallow pit

  5. How the myth started • Two amateur Russian historians discovered the grave 20 miles from Ekaterinburg • Bodies were missing out of the pit • Alexei and Anastasia were believed to have survived

  6. Anna Anderson • In 1922, claimed to be Anastasia after having attempted suicide • Lived in a mental hospital where someone saw her resemblance to Anastasia • “Anastasia” claimed to have been smuggled away from the assassination scene by a member of the firing squad

  7. Could she have been Anastasia? • Yes because… • No because…

  8. Yes because… • She could understand Russian • DNA tests proved that she wasn’t FranziskaSchanzkowksa, a Polish worker who went missing in 1920 • Anna’s ear matched Anastasia’s ear in a matching test - ears are unique for everyone • Close relatives of Anastasia recognized her right away • She remembered only things Anastasia could have known such as her nickname for an old man

  9. No because… • She refused to speak Russian, therefore leading people to believe she didn’t know it • DNA tests proved she wasn’t Anastasia Romanov • DNA tests proved she was more closely related to FranziskaSchanzkowska • Close relatives of Anastasia denied that Anna could be her

  10. It’s an endless circle of facts and scientific evidence!
