Anastasia - movie

20. května 2012 v 20:28 | Klára Lovato |  Other
Anastasia is a 1997 American animated musical adventure-drama film produced and directed by Don Bluth and Gary Goldman. It was the first feature film to be released by Fox Animation Studios. The film features the voices of Meg Ryan, John Cusack, Kelsey Grammel and ect.
The idea for the film originated from Fox's 1956 live-action film of the same name. The plot is loosely based on an urban legend which claimed that Anastasia, the youngest daughter of Nicholas II - the last Emperor of Russia - in fact survived the execution of her family.

Ipatiev house ...how they died..

The Romanov family was murdered at Yekateringburg on July 17th, 1918. After his abdication in March 1917, Nicholas and his family had been put under house arrest and kept just outside of St. Petersburg. As the civil war developed, the whole family was sent to Tolbolsk in Siberia and from there to Yekateringburg in the Urals.

In the summer of the 1918, Yekateringburg was threatened by the advancing Whites. The decision was taken by the Bolsheviks to kill Nicholas and his family. On the night of July 17th, the family was awoken and told that there was trouble in Yekateringburg. They were told that they would be safer in the basement of the house they were staying in. The whole family, the family doctor (Botkin) and three servants went to the basement. A group of twelve Red Army soldiers appeared in the basement and shot those there.

The legend has it that the princesses had to be finished off with bayonets as they had stuffed jewels in their blouses which had deflected the bullets.

Many rumours quickly spread with regards to the murders. One was that the youngest daughter, Anastasia somehow managed to survive. Another was that not all the family were murdered in the basement and that some, primarily the children and Alexandra, were removed from the house and shot elsewhere.

Many people claimed to be Anastasia, Alexei or so. The most famous was Anna Anderson, who claimed to be Anastasia. She really look-a-liked her, but the DNA tests in 1994 showed that she wasn't related to the royal family.

I saw some video where some members of the royal family said that Anastasia's or Maria's and Alexei's bodies weren't find yet.

Titul: Tsarevich of Russia
Born: 12th August 1904, Petergof, Russian Empire
Died: 17th July 1918 (at age 13), Yekaterinburg, Russian SFSR

Anastasia - infp

19. května 2012 v 21:38 | Klára Lovato |  Anastasia Nikolaevna

Nicknames: Nast'a, Malenkaja
Titul: Grand Duchess of Russia
Born: 18th June 1901, Petergof, Russian Empire
Died: 17th July 1918 (at age 17), Yekaterinburg, Russian SFSR

When Anastasia was born, her parents and expected family were disappointed to have a fourth daughter, because they wanted a son who would be heir to the throne. Tsar Nicholas II went for a long walk to compose himself before going to visit Tsarina Alexandra and the newborn Anastasia for the first time. One meaning of her name is "the breaker of chains" or "the prison opener."
Living up to her nicknames, young Anastasia grew into a vivacious and energetic child, described as short and inclined to be chubby, with blue eyes and strawberry-blonde hair.


Maria - info

19. května 2012 v 21:19 | Klára Lovato |  Maria Nikolaevna
Full name: Maria Nikolaevna Romanova

Titul: Grand Duchess of Russia
Born: 26th June 1899, Petergof, Russian Empire
Died: 17th July 1918 (at age 19), Yekaterinburg, Russian SFSR

Contemporaries described Maria as a pretty, flirtatious girl, broadly built, with light brown hair and large blue eyes that were known in the family as "Marie's saucers".Her French tutor Pierre Gilliard said Maria was tall and well-built, with rosy cheeks.
Maria and her younger sister Anastasia were known within the family as "The Little Pair." The two girls shared a room, often wore variations of the same dress, and spent much of their time together.

Titul: Grand Duchess of Russia
Born: 10th June 1897, Petergof, Russian Empire
Died: 17th July 1918 (at age 21), Yekaterinburg, Russian SFSR

Tatiana was described as tall and slender, with dark hair and dark blue-gray eyes, fine, chiseled features, and a refined, elegant bearing befitting the daughter of an Emperor. She was considered the most beautiful of the four grand duchesses by many courtiers.Of all her sisters, Tatiana most closely resembled their mother.
