More About this Item


Description: In the last days of October 1925 I visited Frau Tchaikovsky in the Momsen Sanatorium at Berlin. As to looks, voice & personality I found no resemblance to my niece Anastasia. She tried in every way to make me recognize her as such. But she knows no more about the family life or anything than has already been in print or is generally known. To all my questions relating to former days or to friends or any intimacies – she could not answer one thing. She impressed me with being sincerely convinced of the fact that she really is Anastasia.... Below it stamped seal of the "Bureau pour les Emigrés" and attestation clause of the (tr.) "advisory committee for matters of Russian emigrants in Denmark", dated Copenhagen, 28 February 1927. Comes with the German translation as well as a notarially certified (tr.) "expertise on the identity of Mrs. Tschaikowski with one of the Russian Grand Duchesses", dated at the bottom "Darmstadt 13.01.1927" also signed by Baronesse Sophie Buxhoeveden, who lived continuously as a court lady together with the Russian royal family from 1913 to 1918. One sheet (dimensions ca. 42 x 28 cm), two pages. Comes with six-page letter by Jonkheer F. van der Hoeven, an off-duty diplomatic secretary, who reported extensively on the intrigues of the "Kranken in Seeon" (nutcases of Seeon), i.e. Anna Anderson, who called herself Franziska Schanzkowska there. Dated "München 03.10.1927". Furthermore, extracts from the diary of G. v. Rotsmann regarding occurrences at the Darmstadt court in 1916. Some edges lightly damaged. Very rare and historically significant.
