Anastasia

Factual error: At the beginning of the film, we are told it is 1916, and the Russian Revolutionaries attack. However, the Russian Revolution didn't start until 1917 - on both the English and Russian calendars.

Trivia: The drawing the Dowager Empress holds when she and Anya are reminiscing (the same one young Anastasia gives her at the beginning of the film) is a replica of a picture the real Anastasia drew for her father in 1914.

Trivia: Inspired by the story of Anna Anderson (died 1984) who claimed to be Archduchess Anastasia, which would have made her the only surviving daughter of the Czar and Czarina of Russia. Only DNA tests years after her death proved she was not Anastasia, but an imposter which European nobility had long suspected.
