The Epilogue, Confirmed
That is the chance of the remains of two children found in 2007 in a mass grave in Russia being from a random family and not Tsarevich Alexei and his sister (either Maria or Anastasia).
So, with all but total certainty, the sad chapter of the Russian Revolution can be closed. The Tsar and his entire family were, on the orders of Vladimir Lenin, brutally murdered, their bodies burned in acid and disposed of in the woods outside of Yekaterinburg.
