All of the Romanov family was assassinated and all bodies where eventually found and confirmed with DNA testing. There was a person claiming to be Anastasia, but was proven to be a fake and then the real Anastasia’s remains where found. Rasputin was the religious adviser to the Tzar’s wife. He was hated by everyone and untrusted.The people around the Tzar’s wife felt he had to much influence over her so they plotted against him. He was murdered at a party. He was poisoned, and thrown in the river, but he was still alive so they shot him.
Answer by patriot
A) learn how to spell. It’s The Romanovs….plural…there were a few of them. And the youngest daughter’s name was ANASTASIA (no C).
And there is such a thing as a BIOGRAPHY. Or a SEARCH or an ENCYCLOPEDIA.

They got shot.
Answer by C.G.
Yes,This much is true: the Romanovs were assasainated by Bolshevik revolutionaries.Anastasia and her family were all shot,then there was a fire that scattered their remains about the area of execution.It was not till recently,with the advent of DNA testing that all the Romanov family bones were identified and reburied.The DNA of Philip,Duke of Edinburgh, a direct descendant of the butchered Russian Royals was used to help identify the remains.All family members have been accounted for and reburied.Any person claiming to be Anastasia were proven false,with out a doubt.
Rasputin predicted the fall of the Romanov dynasty.Here are links for you to study:
“When the Romanov family celebrated the tercentenary of its rule, in 1913, the solemnities were clouded by numerous bad omens. The face of Our Lady of St. Theodore, the patron icon of the family, became badly blackened. Grigori Rasputin predicted that the Romanov’s power would not last two years after his death if a Romanov caused his death. (This has since been proven to be a forgery). Rasputin was murdered by a group of nobles, including Nicholas II’s nephew by marriage (Felix Yussupov) and a cousin (Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich), on 16 December 1916. Two months later, the February Revolution of 1917 resulted in abdication of Nicholas II in favor of his brother Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich. The latter declined to accept the throne, terminating the Romanov dynasty’s rule over Russia. (Though to many it is believed that the throne had not technically passed to Michael, as after his father, Nicholas II, Alexei would have ascended the throne. Because Alexei would have been the only one to give away his seat as tsar, Michael would not have had the throne to abdicate, and the throne would still be in the Romanov name.)
After the February Revolution, Nicholas II and his family were placed under house arrest in the Alexander Palace. Several members of the Imperial Family, including Grand Duke Cyril Vladimirovich of Russia, managed to establish good relations with the interim government and eventually fled the country during the October Revolution.
Yekaterinburg’s “Church on the Blood,” built on the spot where the last Tsar and his family were killed.
On July 16, 1918, Bolshevik authorities, led by Yakov Yurovsky, shot Nicholas II, his immediate family, and four servants in the cellar of the Ipatiev House in Yekaterinburg, Russia. The family was told that they would be photographed to prove to the people that they were still alive. The family members were arranged appropriately and left alone for several minutes. Soon the very people that were protecting them entered and shot them. At first, the girls did not die because of the jewels sewn into their corsets. These jewels were for protection but also so that the family could have some money for when they fled the country. The shooters were horrified at how the girls were able to withstand the bullets and feared that the family really was in power due to Divine right. To solve that problem, the shooters tried to stab them with bayonets. That failed, too, because of the jewels, so then, they were shot in the head at close range. Ironically, the Ipatiev House has the same name as the Ipatiev Monastery in Kostroma, where Mikhail Romanov had been offered the Russian Crown in 1613. The spot where the Ipatiev House once stood has recently been commemorated by a magnificent cathedral “on the blood.” After years of controversy, Nicholas II and his family were proclaimed passion-bearers by the Russian Orthodox church in 2000. (In orthodoxy, a passion-bearer is a saint who was not killed because of his faith like a martyr but died in faith at the hand of murderers.)
In 1991, the bodies of Nicholas II and his wife, along with three of their five children and four of their servants, were exhumed (although some questioned the authenticity of these bones despite DNA testing). Because two bodies were not present, many people believed that two Romanov children escaped the killings. There was much debate as to which two children’s bodies were missing. A Russian scientist made photographic superimpositions and determined that Marie and Alexei were not accounted for. Later, an American scientist concluded from dental, vertebral, and other remnants that it was Anastasia and Alexei that were missing. Much mystery surrounded Anastasia’s fate. Several films have been produced, including the full length animated feature Anastasia by Twentieth Century Fox, suggesting that she lived on.
After the bodies were exhumed in June, 1991, they sat in laboratories until 1998, while there was a debate as to whether they should be reburied in Yekaterinburg or St. Petersburg. A commission eventually chose St. Petersburg, so they (along with several loyal servants who died with them) were interred in a special chapel in the Peter
