A three-dimensional model of the hat of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II can help identify his remains, said senior investigator for particularly important cases when the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia Marina Molodtsova.

In 1891, in the Japanese city of Otsu, Tsuda Sanzo, the policeman attacked the crown Prince Nikolai Alexandrovich, future Russian Emperor. The motives of the police act is not completely clear. On the court, he mostly remained silent, but acknowledged that was outraged by the lack of reverence Nicholas before the memorable Stella in honor Satsumskogo uprising (the anti-government uprising untitled aristocracy of 1877).

Tsuda struck two blows with a sword on the head which did not cause significant harm to the heir. The incident was perceived as a national disgrace — the Emperor of Japan arrived in Kyoto to Express my sympathy for the heir to the address of Nicholas has received more than 20 thousand telegrams and letters, and the homeland police were forbidden to call children by name Sanzo.

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.

In addition, experts have established the kinship of Emperor Alexander III, whose remains were exhumed in the Cathedral of St. Petersburg, and the dead man, identified as Nicholas II.
