The main pre-revolution Russian newspaper was probably called The Daily Tsar.
Any military conflict engaged in by Russia at that time might have ben called 'Tsar Wars.
The last Tsar and his wife were very superstitious, putting their faith in astrology, Rasputin and the Hungarian actress Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Rasputin was allegedly a holy man, but his name means 'debauched'. He went around hoovering up any and every available countess, baroness etc. His sexploits in and around the royal court are legendary. Adding him and his appetites to some astronomy, we can get this:
The brightest star In the constellation Leo (the Lion, the King of the jungle) is called Regulus, meaning 'King'. Interesting to note that there's another star in Leo called 'Wolf 359', which is clearly a reference to Rasputin.
