    Shot in 1918, Russian Tsar's children to be buried at last

    The remains of the last two unburied children of Tsar Nicholas will finally be laid to rest October 18, Moscow's announced. The Russian royal family were shot during the bolshevik revolution of 1918, but their remains were not discovered until 1991. The remains of 13-year-old son and heir Tsarevich Alexei and 19-year-old daughter Grand Duchess Maria were not with them however, and have been kept in state archives since they were finally found in 2007.

    The children will now be laid to rest where the rest of their family were reburied in 1998, in Peter and Paul Cathedral in the former imperial capital, St Petersburg.

    13-year-old Tsarevich Alexei suffered from haemophilia and it was Rasputin's apparent ability to ease the young prince's suffering that brought him close to the royal family - and led to his infamous assassination where he 'refused to die'.

    The descendants of the imperial family have refused to accept the dna results identifying the bodies, as has the orthodox Russian church.

    Interesting explanation about Anastasia, the daughter who 'escaped' being shot but didn't really:

    Glad to hear it. They deserve the dignity in death that they did not receive in life. One of my grandmothers was of Ukranian descent and her name was Anna. I used to fantasize that she was Anastasia...
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
