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.
