Biography[edit]

This article is a biography, therefore a section titled "Biography" is nonsensical. Please consider changing it to something more appropriate. Rklawton (talk) 18:49, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

It's not really a biography even though the article title is a person's name. The main point of interest for Anastasia is her death and rumored survival, her biography before that is distinctly secondary. It would be reasonable to name the article Death and rumored survival of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, just as we name some articles Death of Caylee Anthony and so on. However, I think the that longer title would be unwieldy, royal princesses commonly have articles under just their name, and there's no real reason to change it, although you can propose it if you like and maybe you'd be right.

Primary photo[edit]

I find it disappointing that of all the Tsar's children, only Anastasia has a featured image. Are there any high quality photos of Olga, Tatiana, Maria & Alexei that are comparable to Anastasia? All I can find is Olga, though it's from a 1910 photo session. Anastasia's photo was in 1913/14.

New person who is rumored to have been Anastasia[edit]

Since 2012, it's been rumored that a Russian immigrant who lived in the Philippines (and clearly stood out like a sore thumb) is possibly the youngest Romanov Princess. She definitely looked A LOT more like the Grand Duchess than Anna Anderson did. However, unlike Anderson and all the other Anastasia impostors, she never revealed her identity. She went by the name of Tasia and when her granddaughter visited Russia after (years after Grandmama Tasia died) to try and find her Russian family, they apparently found an address to where she'd find her Grandmama's family, and it lead her somewhere near The Romanov's. She noticed a striking resemblance between her Grandmama Tasia and The Grand Duchess Anastasia. The granddaughter has made a website about all of this but has not claimed or denied the possibility that her grandmother is the youngest Russian Princess. This is a big part of media right now, it's not as big as Anderson's claim because the granddaughter still hasn't claimed her Grandmama is Anastasia but is looking for some evidence to discover things, so shouldn't we add this to the article? If you want specific details about the situation, here's the article by the granddaughter.

Wikipedia articles are based on published reliable sources, and not on partisan random websites pushing nonsense. AndyTheGrump (talk) 03:13, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
Totally agree with AndyTheGrump, this is just total nonsense. David J Johnson (talk) 00:01, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
