* Well, when one thinks about Rasputin's role in real life, the revolution may as well be '''''technically''''' and ''partially'' his fault after all. In the end, he did in fact have quite some influence over the Czarina's political decisions, as she appointed him as her personal adviser. One of his many poor decisioins was to appoint several common serfs as government officials, of whom ''not one'' [[BookDumb could read or write]]. However, the fact remains that he neither led the revolution nor that he did it because he was evil; he did it because he was, to put it plainly, an idiot, if a genuinely well-meaning one.

** Plus the movie seems to be set in some alternate universe with talking bats and curses etc. The stock market crash and WWII may not even happen there.

* Anya's decision to marry Dimitri instead of becoming a Princess. By blood she may be the Grand Duchess but she's grown up in an orphanage and had to fight in the real world. That, more than who her parents were, made her who she is. Her future may be with a former servant, but that's the world she feels comfortable in now.

*** Also the fact that remember that in Russia, only males can inherit the throne thus she can't even legally inherit the throne anyway.
* The ballroom at the beginning of the film, and the ballroom at the end look remarkably similar with thrones at the head. At the beginning Anastasia is standing by the throne and Dimitri runs towards her but is not allowed in. At the end, she stops behind the throne and never enters the ballroom. Instead she eventually runs off with Dimitri and marries him. He could never enter that 'ballroom' world, but she left it.

* Dimitri's past. The prologue shows he was knocked out after saving Marie and Anastasia. A small boy captured by an army of violent soldiers? (Who would hate him for even working at the palace). That does not sound good. And even if he survived that, he'd still be abandoned in post-Revolution Russia... You can bet he had a pretty bad time, seeing as he went from a selfless little boy who risked his life to help Anastasia escape to a dishonest conman.
* STALIN IS IN CHARGE by the time the film is taking place. Who knows what he is doing to Russia and the other Soviet countries while all this happening? Not really NightmareFuel since we never see his atrocities, (it's a kid's movie after all) but what's to say people aren't dying or being shipped off to the gulag?

* ^Not sure about that one. It's one thing to kill a comparatively unknown (at the time outside of Russia) rival politician, it's another to kill royalty residing in exile in a foreign country. Tons of Russian aristocrats and members of the Imperial family lived out their lives all over the world, especially in France, England, the US and certain parts of China. Plus, she's living under an assumed name (Anya) with a former peasant.

* Anya's whole decision to marry Dimitri instead of becoming a Princess. By blood she may be the Grand Duchess but she's grown up in an orphanage and had to fight in the real world. That, more than who her parents were, made her who she is. Her future may be with a former servant, but that's the world she feels comfortable in now.
** Anya also spent most of her childhood and adolescence in Soviet Russia, and was probably (justifiably) afraid of the possible consequences of being officially reinstated as the heir to the Russian throne, even if it were just a meaningless title with no actual political power. Granted, her priorities do seem to be starting a new life with Dimitri by the end of the film, though.
