Empress Alexandra Feodorovna and Grand Duchesses Tatiana and Anastasia with some wounded soldiers: 1916. Maria’s crush Nicholas Demenkov, is standing behind Tatiana.
Anastasia | does anyone know the year?
bohoclub asked: do you think Anastasia survived? my name is Anastasia too! So I've taken a huge interest in her!
No, I don’t think anyone survived that night.
There was no way that the Bolsheviks were going to let any member of the Romanov family walk away that night. The White troops were already moving into the town and that was already a threat to the Reds. If the White’s had infiltrated the town and gained seizure of the Romanov family, this would have been game over for the Red’s and the communist movement, I think. They did what they had to do in order to see that would never happen. Therefore, they killed the entire family.
Even if a daughter had survived, although she couldn’t rule according to Russian law, she would still be an iconic living figure of the people. She would be a symbol of restoring the Czarist regime and ultimately bringing the monarchy back into power.
That’s why I think they made sure every single member of that family was dead, upon dead, upon dead that night. As attractive as the story of a surviving member seems, sadly, there’s no way that I believe it happened.
