About Carica Anastasija Romanovna Zacharjina

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anastasia_of_Russia

Anastasia Romanovna Zakharyina-Yurieva (died 7 August 1560) was the first wife of the Russian Tsar Ivan the Terrible and the first Russian tsarina. She was the daughter of Boyar Roman Yurievich Zakharyin-Yuriev, Okolnichi, who died on 16 February 1543, who gave his name to the Romanov Dynasty of Russian monarchs, and wife Uliana Ivanovna, who died in 1579. She was selected as the best bride for Ivan from a large number of suitable mates, brought to the Kremlin specifically for the selection process. All the noble families throughout Russia were given an invitation to present their eligible daughters for this purpose (it is said that there were between 500 and 1500 girls to choose from). Anastasia and Ivan's marriage took place on 3 February 1547 at the Cathedral of the Annunciation. She gave birth to a total of six children (Anna, Maria, Dmitri, Ivan, Eudoxia, and Feodor). It is widely believed that Anastasia had a moderating influence on Ivan's volatile character. In the summer of 1560, she fell ill to a lingering illness. In consequence to these events, Ivan suffered a severe emotional collapse suspecting that his wife had been a victim of malicious actions and had been poisoned by the Boyars. Although he had no evidence of such crimes, he had a number of them tortured and executed. He had already had a strong dislike for the Boyars due to their abusive actions toward him during his childhood. Further examination of the bone remains of Anastasia in the late 20th century by archaeologists and forensics experts have been able to provide evidence that could actually sustain her husband's claim . The high levels of mercury in her hair could be symptomatic of poisoning. However mercury was also used as a cure for syphilis, and so this is disputed. Anastasia's brother Nikita Romanovich was the father of Feodor, the first to take the surname Romanov. In other words, Feodor Romanov was the first cousin of the last Rurikid tsar, Feodor I. This connection with the derelict dynasty facilitated the election of Feodor's son Mikhail Romanov to the throne after the Time of Troubles.

О царице Анастасии Романовне Захарьина-Юрьевой (русский)

Царица Анастасия Романовна, урождённая Захарьина-Юрьева (1530 или 1532 — 28 июля (7 августа) 1560) — первая жена царя Ивана Васильевича Грозного, мать царя Фёдора Иоанновича. Смерть царицы, которую считали отравленной, тяжело отразилась на душевном состоянии Иоанна и была одним из обстоятельств, обостривших его борьбу с боярством.
Анастасия происходила из рода Захарьиных-Юрьевых, впоследствии прозывавшихся Романовыми. Её отец, Роман Юрьевич Кошкин-Захарьев-Юрьев, был окольничим при Василии III, из-за своей ранней смерти особо не отличившимся, а её дядя состоял при малолетнем Иване IV в качестве опекуна.
Днем её рождения, по-видимому, было 2 октября; её святой покровительницей, возможно, могла быть святая Устина (в честь которой посвящена одна из церквей Храма Василия Блаженного).
Благодаря браку Анастасии произошло возвышение рода Романовых, а после пресечения московской линии Рюриковичей в 1598 году близкое родство с последним царём Фёдором дало основания Романовым претендовать на престол. Избранный в 1613 году первый царь из дома Романовых Михаил Фёдорович — внучатый племянник Анастасии Романовны, внук её брата Никиты.
