Re: Tsar Ivan IV at the deathbed of his wife Vasilisa
This painting, however attractive, has no real relevance to the article. The picture is labelled misleadingly, it's not the same wife on the deathbed, and the Tsar himself is much older than he was at the time of Anastasia's death. Therefore, I contend that it fails WP:IMAGE's "Images must be relevant to the article they appear in ..." instruction, and should not be included. -- Saaber 01:58, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
There is such thing as artistic licence, don't you know? Almost all articles on Polish kings are illustrated by images which have nothing to do with their real appearance and nobody rises a havoc about it. It seems that you don't like the article to be improved. Therefore, I reverted it back to the version before my baneful interference. Bye, Ghirla-трёп- 08:14, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
A quick inspection of the articles on Polish kings shows that they were, at the very least, intended to represent the subjects in question, and they were drawn by an artist whose works "[have become] almost standard illustrations of many key events from the Polish history." This isn't about tearing down your efforts, Ghirlandajo -- it's just that this one painting is better left on Ivan IV's page. -- Saaber 18:43, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

No. Romanovna is not a surname like Romanov. Romanovna just means "daughter of Roman." Her brother's descendants adopted the surname later on and became the Imperial Romanov dynasty.--Queen Elizabeth II's Little Spy (talk) 06:54, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
Support This is certainly an improvement. Britannica calls her "Anastasia Romanovna Zakharina", which is also a possibility. Kauffner (talk) 15:07, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
Support per QEII'sLS. Also, seems more consistent with the other consorts of the time, and would permit "Anastasia of Russia" to become a disambiguation page for all the Russian Anastasias. DrKiernan (talk) 17:54, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
