Murder → Murdering of Russian Tsar Nicholas II and his family

Nicholas II of Russia (Nikolay Alexandrovich Romanov) was the last Emperor of Russia, King of Poland, and Grand Duke of Finland. Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra and their children were executed (they were shot) in the house of a Yekaterinburg merchant (Ipatiev house) by Bolshevik revolutionaries on 17 July 1918. Since then, there have been rumours that one or more of the Romanovs had survived the massacre. ...Nicholas was the first to die. He was shot with multiple bullets to the head and chest. The last ones to die were Anastasia, Tatiana, Olga, and Maria, who were wearing several pounds of diamonds within their clothing, thus rendering them bullet-resistant to an extent. They were speared with bayonets. The head of the execution squad was Yakov Yurovsky. Nine bodies were dumped in the muddy forest outside the Russian city of Ekaterinburg, their faces smashed to prevent recognition, their flesh destroyed in a wash of sulfuric acid. The remains of all the family and their retainers with the exception of two of the children were later found in 1991. We do believe that one of Nicholas II's children, Anastasia Romanov, may have survived. You will see in the images: the Ipatiev house in Ekaterinburg in 1918, at the time of the Romanovs' captivity; the death scene; Ekaterinburg (Sverdlovsk) - the Ipatiev House - destroyed on Moscow's order, 1977; diagram of the grave outside Ekaterinburg; the pit during excavation; the tsar computerized; Russian forensics at work; the site of the murders (1991).

In 1991, nine skeletons were found in a shallow grave in Ekaterinburg, Russia. They were believed to be the remains of the Romanov family. The British Forensic Science Service worked with the Russian authorities to investigate. Using samples of the bones, they performed DNA analysis and this established that the bodies were a family group. The forensic team also analysed the mitochondrial DNA, which is easier to extract from bones and survives for longer than chromosomal DNA. This can be used to test relationships between individuals who are several generations apart. By comparing the DNA of the bodies with the DNA of near relatives of the Romanovs alive today, scientists concluded that the bodies were indeed those of the last Tsar and his family.

My alleged Grandfather Nicholas II joined the revolution. Every virtue ever attributed to democracy and liberation got its start with him. But when he give the power to the people, the intelligentsia rebelled instead of joining him. Then the soviets rebelled against the intelligentsia and their interim government. The soviets had no popular support and never did. Sovietism amounted to a return to the kind of tsarism that existed BEFORE Nicholas II tried to democritise it like the British monarchy with a monarch to prevent dictators from arising. The soviets themselves, decades later, would realize the errors of their founders and quietly step down to restore the Federation as best they could. Nicholas was a saint and his children innocent. His wife was dour, but only becuase she had migraine headaches and was in constant agony and fear for her son and children's futures. LONG LIVE THE TSAR!

Hey "True", the "Europeans" you speak of commit acts like this at a rate of tens of thousands of times less than your typical dark-skinned primitive- minded animal-mentality kind. Crap like this happens everyday in the Negro-filled ghettos you racist and ignorant fool.

Samples aren't being properly preserved. Why? Anderson was allegedly cremated. Why? Conclusions are published the family was found. Without substantiation verifiable by the public. Why? The Romanovs have been kept divided. Why? Pretenders' fresh blood is needed in an inbred family but not invited into the clan. Why? Isolation and inbredness was the cuase of the fall but never published. Why? Rasputin openly espoused the obvious solutions and was killed for it. Why? Too many questions, too few answers. A new dynasty is needed, integrated into the system. Why not? Too many questions, too few answers. Somebody is trying to destroy the world or just doesn't care to save it.

Cold War motives kept the question of legel inheritance of the Tsar's estate alive interminably. Anna Anderson appointed me Tsar to invalidate the Tchaikovsky heir's legitimacy. Now a deal has been struck to block me. Yet, sperm has been stolen and embryos frozen and the farce goes on. Why no simply put me on the throne and let reason and beneficence reign? Because politics is crazy, that's why. I'm getting too old for this.
