So how does the mystery end? In 1991, it seemed far from over when a group of Russian investigators found the remains of the Romanov family. A group of British DNA experts were able to confirm, indeed, that the remains were those of the Romanovs, but two bodies were missing: one son and one daughter. In 1994, scientists were able to confirm, through extensive testing, that the late Anna Anderson was not of Romanov descent and was, indeed, Franziska Schanzkowska.
So what about the missing princess?! Finally, in 2007, the whole mystery was put to rest. In time, investigators discovered another nearby grave site that contained the remains of two small children. Through more DNA testing, the bones were accurately identified as those of Anastasia and Alexei. Nearly 90 years later, the enigmatic story had been put to rest: the brother and sister had, tragically, died with the rest of the family.
