My name is Anastasia
My name is Anastasia

One of the great mysteries of history is the fate of Anastasia, the last of four daughters born to the Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II and his wife, Alexandra. The great tragedy of her younger brother, Aleksey, who suffered from hemophilia overshadowed the life of Anastasia's family, while the dark clouds of Revolution grew ever ominous on the horizon. Who was Anastasia and how did she live, what were the things she loved? What is the truth about the woman who claimed to be Anastasia years after she disappeared?

Start your journey to discover the real Anastasia by learning about her parents.

Zooms of Hagia Sophia and other Monuments

Here's a great page of ZOOM views of Byzantine monuments in Constantinople - Tsargrad - and elsewhere.

Mosaic of Leo VI from the Narthex of Hagia Sophia

This mosaic stands above the main Imperial door from the inner narthex into the sanctuary of Hagia Sophia.  Leo was married too many times and this mosaic was a result of his problems with the Church.
