House of Romanov to investigate murder of Nicholas II

A stand-off between state prosecutors and Russian royals has been resolved by Moscow City Court, which granted Grand Duchess Maria Romanova access to evidence relating to the murder of Nicholas II and his family in 1918.

­The head of the Russian Imperial House, Her Imperial Highness, Grand Duchess Maria Romanova wants to conduct her own investigation into the case.

The descendant of the last Russian Emperor says that despite multiple DNA tests, it is not clear whether the human remains found in the city of Ekaterinburg in central Russia in the 1990s actually belong to Nicholas II and his family.

According to prosecutors, Maria Romanova was earlier refused access to the evidence because her interests were not directly affected.
