Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia (1901-1918)

Anastasia is perhaps the best (posthumously) known of the Romanov sisters. Persistent rumors of Anastasia's possible escape from her family's execution circulated after her death, fueled by the fact that the location of her burial was unknown during U.S.S.R. Communist rule (the mass grave near Yekaterinburg was revealed in 1991, but only held the remains of the Tsar, his wife, and three of their daughters). However, another grave was discovered in 2007, containing the bodies of Alexei Nikolaevich and Anastasia.
