The Resurrection of the Romanovs draws on a wealth of new information from previously unpublished materials and unexplored sources to probe the most enduring Romanov mystery of all: the fate of the Tsar's youngest daughter, Anastasia, whose remains were not buried with those of her family, and her identification with Anna Anderson, the woman who claimed to be the missing Grand Duchess.Penetrates the intriguing mysteries surrounding the execution of Tsar Nicholas II and the true fate of his daughter, AnastasiaReveals previously unknown details of Anderson's life as Franziska SchanzkowskaExplains how Anderson acquired her knowledge, why people believed her claim, and how it transformed Anastasia into a cultural phenomenonDraws on unpublished materials including Schanzkowska family memoirs, legal papers, and exclusive access to private documents of the British and Hessian Royal FamiliesIncludes 75 photographs, dozens published here for the first timeWritten by the authors of The Fate of the Romanovs
