Full Name: Velikaya Knyazhna Anastasiya Nikolayevna Romanova
Profession: Grand Duchess of Russia


Biography: Anastasia Nikolaevna was the youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, the last ruler of Imperial Russia, and his wife, Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna. Her older sisters were the Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, and Maria Romanova.

The Romanov family had been held prisoner following the February Revolution in 1917. Nikolaevna was killed along with her family by a group of Bolshevik revolutionaries in Yekaterinburg in July 1918, along with members of their entourage who had accompanied them into imprisonment.

There have since been rumors of their survival, with several women claiming to be Anastasia Nikolaevna. One such impostor was Anna Anderson, who was proven to be unrelated to the Romanovs by a posthumous DNA test in 1994.
