I can't get over what I've just read.

The Danes did ALL they could with what little they had, but the Windsors had all that money and power and influence and did NOTHING. Not just nothing, but actively prevented the rescue that may well have changed history for the better, literally overriding official government policy.

I'm' just disgusted that the less than wealthy and powerful Danes did all they could and the Windsors did nothing.

If the real Anastasia had survived, she could not have become the reigning Tsarina (Empress) Regnant because of the succession laws being changed by Tsar Paul I.

I think the Pauline Laws became obsolete the minute the Imperial Family began to be gunned down by the Bolsheviks. The closest relation to Nicholas II is Prince Rostislav (through the line of the sister of Nicholas II, who was Grand Duchess Xenia) and the closest living relation should be considered Head of House. The Vladimirs claimed Headship even while the Dowager Empress was still alive, who basically was considered the natural leader at the time. I do wonder just why on holy mother earth the Vladimirs just can't give it up and stop the claiming of the headship. Prince Rostislav is the natural head.

In the summer of 1922 Grand Duke Cyril Vladimirovich declared himself Curator of the Russian Throne.
