Romanov DNA investigation continues
According to the AP, DNA tests may soon finally lay to rest the enduring mystery of Grand Duchess Anastasia. I'm not entirely sure why this is still considered an open question; like author Robert K. Massie, whose brilliant Nicholas and Alexandra was a major influence on my life, I've always been firmly convinced that all seven Romanovs (as well as four of their servants) were murdered that horrible night in Ekaterinburg in July 1918, and it seems like this has already been proven beyond a reasonable doubt. In any case, may they rest in peace, and may Russia eventually repent of the terrible crime of regicide and restore the monarchy!
