Bomba (King), a nickname given to Ferdinand II.
The king, coming up, cuts down the boots, and Bombastêes “kills him.” Fusbos, seeing the king fallen, “kills” the general; but at the close of the farce the dead men rise one by one, and join the dance, promising, if the audience likes, “to die again to-morrow.”—Rhodes; Bombastes Furioso (1790).
This farce is a travesty of Orlando Furioso, and “Distaffina” is Angelica, beloved by Orlando, whom she flouted for Medoro a young Moor.

 Sex, Politics and Nuclear Terrorism is Food For Thought In Chilling Novel, "King of Bombs"
The title of Filger's book, "King of Bombs," is derived from an acutal weapon developed by the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War.
Only one such weapon was built; it was detonated on October 23, 1961 in a test conducted in a remote part of the former Soviet Union, with a yield equivalent to 58 million tons of high explosives, roughly 3,000 times more powerful than the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima.
Filger confronts in "King of Bombs" is the question of torture, and if situations ever arise when it is permissible for a democracy to use torture, such as in a context where a terrorist suspect is believed to have information on the location of a weapon of mass destruction that could conceivably kill millions.

 It was as if the earth had been killed. Khrushchev took the cold war to a new, chilling level with the King of Bom
It was the 58 megaton (58m tons of TNT) Tsar Bomba, the "King of Bombs", being tested by the Soviet Union 40 years ago this month.
Although Khrushchev had requested the bomb to have an explosive power of 100 megatons, atomic experts are un-decided as to whether the device tested was a "slimmed-down" version of the weapon, or if the bomb malfunctioned and did not explode at full capacity.
The father of Tsar Bomba was convinced that "our work was crucial in preserving the parity necessary for mutual deterrence" but at the same time he was tormented by the environmental and political impact of his actions.

 The Soviet Weapons Program - The Tsar Bomba
The Tsar Bomba (referred to as the Big Bomb by Sakharov in his Memoirs [Sakharov 1990]) was the largest nuclear weapon ever constructed or detonated.
The destruction and damage of buildings at much greater ranges than this which occurred was due to the effects of atmospheric focusing, an unpredictable but unavoidable phenomenon with very large atmospheric explosions that is capable of generating localized regions of destructive blast pressure at great distances (even exceeding 1000 km).
Support for this idea may be drawn from the shape of the Tsar Bomba, a fat 2 m wide bomb, too wide to fit inside the Tu-95 bomb-bay.
