  3. 3. Association with Grigori Rasputin<br />Anastasia’s mother relied on the counsel of Grigori Rasputin, a Russian peasant and wandering staretsor "holy man," and credited his prayers with saving the ailing Tsarevich on numerous occasions.<br />Rumourspersisted and it was later whispered in society that Rasputin had seduced not only the Tsarina but also the four grand duchesses.<br />After the scandal, Nicholas ordered Rasputin to leave St. Petersburg for a time.<br />Murdered on December 17, 1916<br />After they were killed by the Bolsheviks, it was discovered Anastasia and her sisters were all wearing amulets bearing Rasputin's picture and a prayer.<br />

  5. 5. False Reports of Survival-Anna Anderson-<br />Anastasia's supposed survival was one of the celebrated mysteries of the 20th century.<br />Anna Anderson, the most notorious Anastasia impostor, first surfaced publicly between 1920 and 1922<br />She contended that she had feigned death amongst the bodies of her family members and servants, and was able to make her escape with the help of a compassionate guard who rescued her from amongst the corpses after noticing that she was still alive<br />The final decision of the court was that Anderson had not provided sufficient proof to claim the identity of the grand duchess. DNA tests proved she could not have been the Grand Duchess.<br />Anderson died in 1984.<br />
