Overview


The truth of the enduring mystery of Anastasia's fate-and the life of her most convincing impostor The passage of more than ninety years and the publication of hundreds of books in dozens of languages has not extinguished an enduring interest in the mysteries surrounding the 1918 execution of the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II and his family. The Resurrection of the Romanovs draws on a wealth of new information from previously unpublished materials and unexplored sources to probe the most enduring Romanov mystery of all: the fate of the Tsar's youngest daughter, Anastasia, whose remains were not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, Anastasia
  • Reveals previously unknown details of Anderson's life as Franziska Schanzkowska
  • Explains how Anderson acquired her knowledge, why people believed her claim, and how it transformed Anastasia into a cultural phenomenon
  • Draws on unpublished materials including Schanzkowska family memoirs, legal papers, and exclusive access to private documents of the British and Hessian Royal Families
  • Includes 75 photographs, dozens published here for the first time
  • Written by the authors of The Fate of the Romanovs

Refuting long-accepted evidence in the Anderson case, The Resurrection of the Romanovs finally explodes the greatest royal mystery of the twentieth-century.

I have long been interested in the Romanovs and the mystery of Anastasia and Anna Anderson.  This book was absolutely wonderful at introducing the dreadful fate of the Romanov family, the history of Anna Anderson, and the answer to the question everyone has been asking for years:  'Was she Anastasia and if not, then who?"  Once again, Greg King does a great job of weaving an incredible story with all of the necessary facts.  What a great book!
