Synopsis 1:
In Berlin during 1926, a group of monarchist conspirators persuades an

amnesiac girl to impersonate Anastasia, daughter of Czar Nicholas II, whose

children were thought to have been killed in 1918 during the Russian Civil War.

According to rumor, Anastasia survived - and will inherit the Czar's

millions if she can prove her identity. [RF]

Summary:
The story of Anna Anderson, who surfaced in Berlin in 1920

claiming to be the lost princess. Her claim gained some credibility

due to the Soviet government's cover up of the slayings of the royal family in 1918.

 They initially only admitted that Nicholas had been killed. The Soviet silence

was prompted by political considerations, as they did not

want to offend Germany, with whom they had just signed

a World War I peace treaty. Alexandra was, after all, a German

princess before she became a Russian tsarina.
