 Tsar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Since the word "tsar" remained the popular designation of the Russian ruler despite the official change of style, its transliteration of this title in foreign languages such as English is commonly used also, in fact chiefly, for the Russian Emperors up to 1917.
Tsesarevich (Цесаревич) (literally, "son of the tsar") is the term for a male heir apparent, the full title was Heir Tsesarevich ("Naslednik Tsesarevich", Наследник Цесаревич), informally abbreviated in Russia to The Heir ("Naslednik") (from the capital letter).
Mogul, Tsar or Czar has been used as a metaphor for positions of high authority, in English since 1866 (referring to U.S. President Andrew Johnson), with a connotation of dictatorial powers and style, fitting since "Autocrat" was an official title of the Russian Emperor (informally referred to as 'the Czar').

In 1547, Ivan IV of Russia changed his title from "Veliki Kniaz (Grand Duke) of the whole Rus" to "tsar of the whole Rus" as a symbol of change in the nature of the Russian state.
The title "Tsar" was also used by Serbian rulers in the middle of the 14th century.
However, in 1721, Tsar Peter the Great of Russia took the additional title of Imperator (Emperor), which, at least officially, superseded the older title of Tsar, which was henceforth formally used only for peripheral parts of the Empire.

Tsar (Bulgarian, Serbian and Macedonian цар, Russian, in scientific transliteration respectively car and car'), often spelled Czar or Tzar and sometimes Csar or Zar in English, is a Slavonic term for a emperor.
The title tsar remained in common usage, and also officially as the designator of various titles signifying rule over various states absorbed by the Muscovite monarchy (such as the former Mongol khanates and the Georgian Orthodox kingdom).
In contrast, in the Bulgarian and Russian languages, the term tsar has come to be interpreted as a default term for a monarch and signifies ancient and Biblical rulers, as well as monarchs in fairy tales and the like.

He always wore his brown hair parted on the left and grew a thick beard filled with golden highlights when he was a young man. It stayed with him throughout his life and became his signature feature, along with the nervous habit he had of brushing his moustache up with the back of his hand.
His parents where astute enough to see the challenges of facing a 20th Century Tsar would be quite different than those of the past and tried to prepare him for his future responsibilities.

 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 world's largest bell (the Tsar Kolokol) and cannon (the Tsar Pushka), neither of which are actually useful for anything, are on display at the Kremlin [Kalinin 1994; pg.
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).

 World Wide Words: Tsar
tsar is not at all a common term in the UK for what might in tabloid-speak have been called instead a supremo.
In Britain, as in the USA, the phrase is journalese (conveniently short for snappy headlines), almost certainly destined to be restricted to the popular press, with serious papers loftily distancing themselves from it by enclosing it in those useful little quarantining quotation marks.
This month, the British government announced a scheme to re-house the homeless who are sleeping rough on the streets.

 SPIN.com: Tsar
This actually plays out more like a formula: By crafting an ambitiously diverse array of concise, fast, rock'n'roll expressions as a band, Tsar aims to appease the largest number of girls who will, in turn, fork over their hard-earned money on Tsar CDs, concert tickets, and girlie tees.
If she sports a mullet and prefers ratty fl concert t-shirts, she's likely to dig the bratty, speedy "Straight"; its punchy power chords and blazing guitar riffs recall latter day rockers like Murder City Devils.
Tsar has certainly been patient for solutions; after releasing their debut on Hollywood Records in 2000, the band was stuck in limbo for some time before signing with TVT in 2004.
