The last Russian Emperor Nicholas II and his family were shot in the summer of 1918 in Ekaterinburg. In 1991, a grave was discovered in a place called pig log near Yekaterinburg (presumably the remains of the Imperial couple and three daughters, the Grand duchesses). In 2007, near this place was found another burial (possibly of crown Prince Alexei and Grand Duchess Maria).

In 2000 the Russian Orthodox Church canonized Nicholas II and his family canonized. After the opening of the graves near Ekaterinburg remains of members of the Imperial family were buried in the tomb of the Peter and Paul Cathedral in St. Petersburg. However, the Church does not recognize the found remains genuine due to the lack of evidence.
