Remains of Russian Czar's Heir Found

Ural archaeologist announced that they've discovered what could be the remains of Russia's last czar's son and heir to the throne, Prince Alexei:

The remains of the last czar's son and heir to the Russian throne, missing since the royal family was gunned down nine decades by Bolsheviks in a basement room, may have been found, an archaeologist said Thursday.

Bones found in the remnants of a bonfire near Yekaterinburg, the city where Czar Nicholas II and his wife and children were held prisoner and then shot in 1918, belong to a boy and a young woman roughly the ages of the czar's son Alexei and a sister whose remains have also never been found, a top local archaelogist said. If confirmed, the finding would solve a persistent mystery and fill in a missing chapter in the story of the doomed family.

The rumours are much more interesting. And less sad.

Removing the boy to a second location makes sense. But why was one of his sisters with him? There are some things about that whole sorry story that we'll probably never know for sure.
