Description - The Many Deaths of Tsar Nicholas II by Wendy Slater

This book both discusses what actually happened to Nicholas II, the last Tsar, and his family, and also examines the many interesting 'stories' which have accumulated around this horrific event. It tells how the bones of the family were discovered, what was learnt from the scientific examination of them, and how the bones were re-interred with great ceremony. It discusses the different variants of the story, the stories of survivors and impostors, the continuing vociferous scepticism from some people about the authenticity of the relics, and the huge impact of the canonisation of the last Tsar and his family on contemporary political and religious debates within Russia.
