My mothers side of the family claimed to descend from the Romanov family. it has been passed down, i do not know for how long. I have no idea if this is true or not. My mother barely knows anything in regard to this due to not being interested and the rest of the family doesn't know i exist. what do you suggest i should do about this? i barely know anything about russian history.
Not the Tsar, Alexandra or their children, but yes there are a large number of descendants of the Romanov family, including descendants of people who fled Russia in time as well as Romanovs who married out. There's even an association for it.
Just know there are thousands upon thousands of people alive today that can legitimately claim royal blood. Monarchs did a lot of fucking. Unless you've been born into a position of political power, the relation is meaningless.
My best friend's crazy cocained-addled mother claims to descend from a Nibiru alien who raped her great-great grandmother, a fact which was revealed to her during one of 12 visits to each of Jesus' apostles, who are themselves aliens.
>There are no descendants of the Romanov family
my grandmother spoke to me about it a handful of times when i was younger, about the age of 11-12. Due to my young age i never really payed attention or took it seriously. Also my mum has never really done anything about it which doesn't help or took it seriously. All my mother really knows is that her side of the family was wealthy and fled to germany during the russian revolution, while in germany the family lost most of its wealth. I have family in germany too who i assume must know more, however i have never spoke to them and my mother isn't sure if she can get contact with them.
you are right. i am not really looking for benefits. I am just interested to know if there is any truth to the claim.
Considering the number of hucksters that popped up in the wake of the Revolution proclaiming they were part of the royal family, it's more likely that one of your ancestors was just a liar going for the long-con.
