it's strange how much this family always reminded me of my own. my twin sister and I have been obsessed with them since we were little and have always felt this strange connection, particularly to Maria and Anastasia as the actual sisters remind us a lot of ourselves. their deaths have always terrified me as I've always believed that the worst way to die is to know it's coming and not being able to stop it. I still can't believe that they continually tried to kill the children and the images of what went down in the basement has always haunted me.

I know a Hungarian family (they are Eastern Orthodox Christian) and they have three daughters. The oldest daughter is called Anastasia and the middle daughter is called Tatiana, just like the Romanovs, so I thought of them during this.

The Romanovs were not pampered, the family had to make their own beds and clean by themselves. The mother of the girls made them do it because of her victorian ways.

10:17 lol but do you know the story of Franz Ferdinand's assassination? (i understand this is not something to make fun of but his assassins were honestly so incompetent) so he was assassinated by the black hand gang, it was supposed to be during a drive Franz was taking around the city using a grenade but one of the assassins threw the grenade directly at the car, forgetting that it doesn't go off immediately so it didn't kill them but served as a warning. Franz and his wife sped off and one of the assassins was being chased so he took a (cyanide i think) pill to kill himself and jumped in a lake BUT the pill was gone off and only made him vomit, and the lake was like 3 inches deep so the guards got him easily. i actually learned this quite a while ago and i feel like theres more to the story but the next thing i remember is that gavrilo princep, one of the assassins, was outside a shop hours later when Franz car drove down the road (Franz driver wasnt even supposed to take that route) so Gavrilo shot them. eventually some of the captured assassins gave the names of the other assassins.

They did it to eliminate any possible claims to power in the future. The adults were killed. So what? The roots--the children--are still there and would replace their parents. The safest way is to erase the problem completely. Yes, the kids may have not posed a threat then, but when they grow up, it is a different story.

by the way, Alexei got Hemophilia from his mother Alexandra who inherited it from Queen Victoria! Due to royal marriages many royals all over Europe had this rather rare disease and Queen Victoria is thought to be the first one who had it due to a genetic mutation.

I actually never watched this movie but I really want to, I just watched it to know some history facts. Also WW1 was not just caused by the assassination of Archduke Frans Ferdinand, it was also caused by militarism, secret alliances, nationalism, and imperialism, I learnt that in a long time ago, it was called M.A.N.I.A so you can remember it easily.

This is actually not a Disney film. When it showed on TV it would come on on the Fox Channel not Disney Channel. And it doesn’t have the Disney logo at the beginning. I still don’t know what production company made it, but it confused me when I was little!

I think they coulda done a Romanov execution scene in a way that wasn't too graphic, with shadows, sounds, maybe a cup of red wine (representing blood) spilling into frame.

Apparently Anastasia and I think Maria didn’t die immediately because the bullets bounced off their dresses because they had so many sequins. Also apparently Alexi and Anastasia started screaming and someone on the street heard but didn’t think anything of it. Edit - I made this comment before I watched the end about the execution so I didn’t realise it already said it

The Romanovs deserved it but lets be honest the reason the Bolsheviks waited so long to execute them was because they didn't want to but the the war with the white army and risking losing everything gained during the revolution, it was the only choice. Y'all act like purist saints

This video is really good, just gotta be the nit picky animation nerd that I am though and point out this isn’t a Disney Movie as many may believe, it’s a Don Bluth movie along with other works that are often believed to be Disney films like The Secret of NIMH or An American Tale. Just a random fact :)

Just one problem: The movie Anastasia isn't Disney. And it wasn't REALLY 20th century fox, either. Don Bluth was the one who made it, and Bluth's company would be a good subject for you to take a look at. Bluth started with "The Secret of NIMH" Another movie often mistaken for a Disney film.

I never saw the cartoon; instead I grew up hearing the real story from my grandmother as it was told to her by her mother who's mother was first cousins with Alexandra. So I can't help feeling compelled to call out some (almost insignificant) flaws in this video, if you don't mind (meaning no offense or disrespect whatsoever). Queen Victoria was not Nicholas' great aunt; she was Alexandra's grandmother. Also Anastasia's sister was named Marie, not Maria, and Alexei is pronounced "Alexay." Aside from those very minor flaws (sorry I just couldn't help myself), you did an excellent job on this video and I'm very impressed. You obviously spent many hours researching. Keep making your brilliant videos!
