Popular belief has it that Anastasia Romanov escaped the assassination when the rest of the Imperial Family was murdered during the Russian Revolution.
The grandchildren of a South African woman claimed that their deceased grandmother was the Grand Duchess of Russia. She was presumed to be Anastasia. They claimed she escaped and lived out her life in fear and hiding as a commoner in South Africa.
After exhuming the woman's remains from a secret grave, we took the remains to four universities including Oxford to prove their claim. Astonishingly the results concluded that is was not Anastasia who escaped the revolutionaries' bullets but her sister Maria.
