100 years ago, the Russian Tsar Nicholas II and his entire family were killed by a firing squad.

For many years, the circumstances of their death were shrouded in mystery.

Their bones were eventually found in a swamp outside the Siberian city of Ekaterinburg where the Royal Family were held in captivity.

In 1998, they were reburied in St Petersburg.

Olga Romanoff, the great-niece of the Russian Tsar, spoke to Witness.
