It is almost a century since the Russian Royal family were murdered in a cellar by the Bolsheviks. Within the past two decades a positive DNA identification of the remains of all five children has finally stopped the rumours that a family member had survived, preserving the Romanov dynasty.
There was in fact a sixth child, born in 1898 under conditions of the greatest secrecy, who was not present at the massacre, and indeed has remained totally unknown to the world at large.
Reported as a stillbirth, he was immediately smuggled out of Russia, and the few people who knew the truth were killed to protect the secret. He died in 1917, a year before his parents, after he had fathered a child who grew up knowing nothing of his heritage.
