Example text

10 If she was an impostor, Anderson’s supporters pointed out, she must have been a very skillful and carefully prepared impostor to manage such a linguistic feat. How could an impostor amass the wealth of intimate details about Anastasia’s life? people argued. 12 Or know the intricacies of imperial etiquette so well that she never made a mistake in behavior, never a lapse in manner? Or convince anthropological experts that she was Anastasia? Or handwriting experts? And on and on it went—this string of unlikely coincidences, if they could be called that, that peppered the history of Anderson’s claim, that raised her from simple impostor to possible, plausible, even likely, said some, grand duchess.

Questionable “recognitions” were often accepted as evidence, despite the numerous difficulties they posed, and troubling issues were often dismissed. Unlike her predecessors, Anna Anderson benefited by appearing at a time when her claim could be promoted on a universal scale, through magazines, books, newsreels, films, and documentaries. A legend was created, a complex, multilayered myth appealing to nostalgic sentiment, to romantic hopes, to imagination; a legend so compelling, so widespread that it became part of twentieth-century history and culture.

Unfortunately for history—and for the history of this case—much of what the public has been led to believe is simply wrong. The real story of Anna Anderson’s claim has never been told. It was a story we wanted to tell, but one that first we had to understand— understand what the evidence was, how her case grew into legend, how people came to believe and why they needed to believe, and ultimately who she was. And we eventually found the answers to these questions, and to a hundred others that have plagued her case for decades, that linger today as troubling contradictions and seemingly impressive rebuttals to her opponents.
