9. Anna Anderson – Grown Up Anastasia?
In 1922, a woman that went by the name Anna Anderson claimed in Berlin that she was, in fact, the Grand Duchess and had managed to survive and escape the execution. She had been committed to a German mental health hospital for a suicide attempt back in 1920.
Out of all the imposter claims, hers was the most famous and widely recognized one. While some of Anastasia’s extended family did not believe her claims, there were others that admitted that Anna’s eyes and mannerisms were very much like the younger princess.
