A decision has been made to exhume the remains of the Russian Emperor Alexander III (father of Tsar Nicholas II) for use in the new examination of the murder case of the Romanov family, “Interfax” reports.

“At the initiative of the Patriarch a decision has been made to open the tomb of Tsar Alexander III. It all depends on technical conditions. All of this work will probably not be started any earlier than mid-November,”  said the senior investigator of the case Vladimir Solovyov.

Last month, the committee reopened the criminal investigation case of the death of the Romanov family and stated that additional studies will be conducted to confirm the authenticity of the remains of Tsarevich Alexei and Grand Duchess Maria. Currently their remains are stored in the State Archives of the Russian Federation.

  1. Hello Helen, This is so fascinating to me; I just wish my parents were still alive to learn about this. I don’t know if I mentioned this to you before, but we lived close to where Nicholas II’s sister lived with her husband when they moved to Canada. That’s where she did most of her beautiful watercolor painting. I LOVE your books and all the information you are giving us. —-Hugs, Adele
