The court ruled against the 69-year-old woman on procedur- al grounds, giving no opinion on the validity of her claim that she escaped the Rolshcvik mas- sacre of the Czar and his family in a basement at. Ekaterinburg in 1018. By coincidence, the Supreme Ccurt announced its ruling ex- actly 50 years from the day on which a 10-year-old girl was pulled from a Berlin canal after a suicide attempt and began her fight to be recognized as Anas- lasia. Speaking for the five-judge court, Chief Judge Kurt Ilagen- darm said there was no ground for overturning a Hamburg court's 1967 decision that Mrs. Manahan had not proved her claim. "We have not decided that Ihe planiliff is nol Ihc Duchess An- Ilagendarm said, "but only that Ihc Hamburg court made ils decision without legal mislakcs and wilhoul procedur- al errors." The court also said ils ruling was valid only for Ihis specific civil case and "Ihe plaintiff can try again against other heirs." Mrs. Manahan, who since 1963, has been married to a for- mer history professor al the University of Virginia, was not in court. Her attorney, Frciticrr Kurt von Slackelbcrg, said he would have lo consult wilh her before deciding whether he could pursue the fight further. In Charlollesville Va., her husband, John R. Manahan, said: "I'm quilo surprised about Ihe decision because people there said she could win. There's no doubt about it. She is Anastasia." Von Slackelbcrg said (here was a possibility a case could be brought before the conslilulion- al court on the conlcnlion that Ihe Hamburg court h.id nol ob- served her constitutional rights. Or she might bring a new suit against heirs of Ihe last czar, he added. In 1033, the then Anna Anricr- son began her legal fighl alter years of visiting royal palaces across Europe, acccplcd in some as Anaslasia, rejected in others. She said persons loyal to the imperial family had spirited her from the cellar in Siberia while she was unconscious, cared for her in secret until she recovered from her wounds, Ihcn smug- gled her oul of Russia. Her op- poncnls said she was a Ger- man-Polish worker named Franziska Schanzkowski who disappeared from her Berlin boarding house about the lime Anna was fished from Ihe canal. Mrs. Anderson sued in 1933 to be as heir lo Ihe pro- perly of the Russian imperial family. The Duchess of Meck- lenburg, a grandniecc of Ihc last czarina, conlcstcd Ihc suit. World War II and ils aflermalh delayed Ihc verdict unlil 1957; II was against Mrs, Anderson. She losl an appeal In 1961, and Ihc Hamburg ruling went against her in 1967. For years ihcre have heen ru- mors Ihat Ihc prize at slake is a huge fortune Nicholas II dcpos- iled in Ihe Bark of England. But Ihe existence of the fortune has never been proved, and many fi- nancial sources in London are convinced il is a myth. Mrs. Mananam's lawyers have con- tended that she only wants to establish her identity, nol inher- it a fortune. Her long court fighl has been financed by conlribulions from her supporters and by royalties, from a book she wrote and from I he plays and movies based on her story.
