History in the Making?

The remains of the two missing children of Czar Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra may have been found. It would be nice to finally put an end to the story which has captured imaginations for decades if these bodies really are found to be Alexei and Maria or Anastasia. Also hopefully a positive identification of one of the earlier bodies found can be made, since there were debates between the forensic scientists involved as to whether one of the bodies was Maria or Anastasia. Without the fourth daughter's body, it was difficult to tell for certain.

I have read a lot about the Romanov Family, including the fact that the Tsar's cousin, King George, refused to grant him political asylum in England. Even then, the Tsar knew what may come to pass.

I hope it does turn out to be them so that they can finally Rest in Peace.

I think King George V's government was at least as much involved in the refusal as the King was.
