Best Answer

There were several Princesses named Anastasia in Russia. The most famous one was the fourth daughter of Nicholas II, the last Russian Tsar. Her full title was Her Imperial Highness The Grand Duchess Anastasia Nicolaievna of Russia (b. June 18, 1901, believed to have died July 17, 1918.)

After the Imperial family was executed in 1918 there have been several people who claimed to be Anastasia, but they either lacked proof, or were proven to be impostors.

Recent archaeological research in July and August 2007 at the execution site in Ekaterinburg, Russia discovered remains believed to be those of Anastasia. DNA testing results from DNA submitted by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, first cousin to the children of the Tsar and Empress, have proven the remains are those of two of the Tsar's children.

The male remains were those of the Tsarevitch Alexei, while the female ones were initially believed to be Anastasia, but were proven to be s sister Grand Duchess Marie.

Anastasia's fate remains uncertain. However, it most likely is nothing like the various fictional accounts.

Is Princess Anastasia real?

Yes, she was a real person, but the movie got a few facts wrong. -Anastasia was not seven when the Imperialist government fell -Rasputin did not hate the family, and was actually loved by Anastasia -Her title is Grand Duchess, not Princess. Grand Duchess is actually higher ranking than Princess. GD > P. Anastasia was the youngest daughter of the Tsar Nicholas II. She died at the age of 17 after being assassinated in the middle of the night. A German woman with a history of mental illness by the name of Anna Anderson pretended to be Anastasia, and her story is what the movie is based on. In fact, many living relatives today of the Romanov family are disgusted by this portail of Anastasia, because it completely warps the facts. However, something interesting to note, the real Anastasia is believed to have had a crush on a kitchen boy who served her named Leonid Sedniov. It is rumored that Dimitri is very loosely based on Leonid.

What is the story Anastasia about?

"Anastasia is about the lost princess of the tzar empire of russia. When the princess was little, the commoners started a civil revolution and burned the palace. Anastasia's family was killed except for her grandmother, a dutchess in Paris. When Anastasia and her grandmother tried to escape, Anastasia fell off the train and hit her head, causing amnesia. The story is her trying to find her way to Paris, based on a clue 'together in Paris' which is inscribed on her necklace. Anastasia is taken to Paris by a pair of cons looking to find a princess look-a-like so they can 'reunite' her with her grandmother and 10million reubels reward. The villain is the sorcerer Rasputin, who traded his soul for forbidden magic so he could kill the entire royal family. But Anastasia is alive, so his mission is incomplete, which means she must also survive his attempts on her life." This is what the cartoon movie is about.
