Burial place[edit]

The infoboxes on this page and that of Maria state that Anastasia is buried in the Peter and Paul's Cathedral and Maria is yet to be buried. However, whether or not the bones belong to Anastasia or Maria is a source of debate among experts. Shouldn't this be taken into account in the info boxes so as not to appear biased toward one study over another? ~ Iamthecheese44 (talk) 00:52, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

I agree! Russia believes that Maria is the one that was the missing body, but other countries, like America, believe that the missing Romanov Princess was Anastasia. So since it's the Russian church and scientists doing this, they assume that they're doing the tests on Alexei and Maria, even though it hasn't been conclusively proven which Grand Duchess was the missing body. So it's only fair to add the same case reopening for Anastasia. While I wouldn't call this a reliable source, there is a woman claiming that her grandmother was lost princess, by the name of Grandmama Tasia, who did (now being deceased) resemble the Grand Duchess more than any of the Romanov impostors. Here's a picture of the woman. That's not to say that Anastasia survived for sure, but if tests prove that the body isn't that of one of the Russian Princesses, it could be possible that the woman might have been Anastasia. But that is all just a theory. Either way, it only seems fair to add it for Anastasia, seeing as how it was never proven which body was Maria or Anastasia. Only doing it for Maria kind of shows biasness. --DisneyFan3 (talk) 23:51, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

There are two bodies that are conclusively and unambiguously verified as those of Maria and Anastasia. The problem is that Maria and Anastasia cannot be distinguished from one another, not that one is still missing. DrKay (talk) 08:06, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

I'm aware of that. The thing is that if the female body is proven through testing to not be one of the Romanovs, it could be possible that one of them did survive, but let's not count the chickens before they hatch. The point is that there isn't a way to prove, as of yet, which bones belonged to Anastasia or Maria. Therefore, who the Russians think is Maria is who Americans believe to be Anastasia. Whether or not the bones are that of one of the real Grand Duchesses is to be proven through more DNA tests, but since there is no way to prove which one of the princesses bones it was that were found with Alexei, it's only fair to have the reopening of the case added to Anastasia. --DisneyFan3 (talk) 23:06, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

With respect, you are not reading DrKay's comments above. The remains have been conclusively and unambiguously verified as those of Maria and Anastasia through DNA testing. The only problem is which body is which. There is absolutely no need to reopen the Anastasia debate, or alter the article page. David J Johnson (talk) 23:15, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
