On February 12, 1994, probably in her eighty-fourth year, the woman known as Anna Anderson died in Charlottesville, Virginia. Was she, as she claimed, the youngest daughter of the last Tsar, or was she a former Polish factory worker who, miraculously, had intimate knowledge of the royal family's activities? The fate of Anastasia and that of the entire Russian Imperial family is still shrouded in mystery, even after the confirmation in 1993 of the discovery of their remains in a pit near Ekaterinburg in the Urals. The many reports out of Russia concur that two of the royal children were missing from the grave, but do not agree on their identity. The cover-ups and contradictory statements by earlier Communist regimes have further clouded the Romanovs' untimely end. Even the house where the family was executed was destroyed on the orders of Boris Yeltsin. John Klier untangles the strands of the Romanov mysteries, separating unpalatable truths from tactical, political lies. Fluent in Russian and an expert in Russian history and archival materials, he has traveled to Russia, the United States, and Western Europe in search of the lost Romanovs.
