Another interesting fact about the Romanovs was that Tsar Nicholas II was a cousin of King George V of Great Britain and Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. King George did not save his cousin and the family by giving them asylum in Great Britain out of fear of Socialist uprisings in Britain.

I have to correct the assertion that Serbia started WWI with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The Serbians involved were actually Bosnian Pan-Slavs who were part of the Black Hand. One minor member of the Serbians War Ministry was in any wise involved in the assassination and he only armed the group with small arms and some explosives. The government of King Peter of Serbia not only did not have anything to do with the assassination, bit they actually agreed to every demand Emporer Franz Joseph's government made except for the demands that were blatant violations of Serbian autonomy (which demands were put into the demands with full knowledge that they would of course be denied and be used as an excuse for Austria-Hungary attacking Serbia. And the embarrassing Russian loss of the 1905 Russo-Japanese War caused a failed revolution and was another part of discontent in Russia in addition to Russia's dismal failures in WWI. Interestingly- my grandfather's family and even grandfather himself lived through the unrest in the last days of the Romanovs.

I know this is a older video and you may not even look at this but i'd just like to say that I just recently started watching your videos the other day. I noticed how much detail you put into every video. I understand that sometimes putting so many hours upon of work into these videos can be exhausting, frustrating, worrisome, etc.. i really appreciate the work you put into these. Thank you so much!

@Luke M As a child she spent everyday of her later life living behind a secret wall terrified that she would be betrayed to the Nazis, which she was. She was placed in a concentration camp and starved, eventually contracting Typhus, a disease that thrives in overcrowded, squalid and unhygienic surroundings. It kills those who are so weak from malnutrition they have no ability to fight it. The only people dying in large numbers due to Typhus at that time were concentration camp victims. If that ain't a fucking horror story I don't know what is.

Russian archeologists believed that the skeleton was Marie’s, but American archeologists proved that it was instead Anastasias. Some Russians still believe that the skeleton was of Marie or that there was no skeleton found of Marie, which is interesting considering Americans taught of the story was taught of it being Anastasia, or sometimes that she was never found at all. Shows the differences in culture, misconception, and the way that misinformation or late information can spread or be ignored/lost by the general public. The reason the bodies were found so late was a mixture of them being buried elsewhere and the 30 year period where archeologists were threatened into not looking into the Romanovs disappearances. Fun fact: Lenin, the famous leader of the original Bolshevik group, did not support the assassination of the children, and when asked he responded that the parents should be killed and the children should be sent off to live with relatives, most likely in England since there was still much tension between Austria and Russia because of both World War I and tensions previous - in fact, while Nicholas and Alexandra loved each other, there marriage was mainly accepted as a show of peace between the two countries, as Alexandra was Austrian royalty.

Lenin had the killed because earlier in his life, the bolsheviks was the cause of his older brothers execution, when they first wanted to start the revolution

This video is fantastic, I know the real story very well based off of a mini series. However, you missed one detail that added to Russia's anger, and that is how the Romanov hid Alexie's condition.

Feels like whoever wrote those things about Nicholas II was Jewish or Bolshevik. They were the ones that sparked the Russian Revolution and killed the family and took over Russia.

I enjoyed more of the origins of this one but I would like to hear about the impersonators that would be a good story. And of course it's a shame that they died that way. I think Russia would be a better place if the romanovs still ruled.

My mom actually got to meet Anna Anderson when she was still a schoolgirl. Her opinion of Anna is one I agree with. Anna honestly believed she was Anastasia, and she knew things that only someone who lived in the palace would know. So she wasn’t an imposter per say, just a case of mistaken self-identity.

I’m so mad at my sister, when I was SIX she made me watch Anastasia and I sobbed because I was so scared so you wanna know what she did? She told me that rasputins body was found in the river after 8 hours and he was living and they took him to somewhere where they were gonna kill him but they never did because he escaped. I didn’t sleep that night.

By that point the name Anastasia wasn't exotic, to this day a lot of Greek names are incorporated in Russian culture, this happened due to the spreading of Christianity. Also, as people already pointed out, Rasputin was not from Serbia, but Siberia, and believe me there are a lot better places to "chill out". Also, compared to there ancestors, the last Tsars family wasn't too 'pampered', for instance, the queen and her daughters volunteered in a hospital during the war.
