Background

czar (zär, tsär)n. 1. New Chicago post-metal trio consisting of Jason Novak (dj? acucrack, acumen nation), Dan Brill (acumen nation, 1350cc) and Brian Elza (chiral, bridgelayer), favoring melodic dirge instrumental sound signals (see: tool, jesu, pelican, mastodon, life and times, homer's odyssey and poseiden himself). 2. A male monarch or emperor, especially one of the emperors who ruled Russia until the revolution of 1917. 3. A person having great power; an autocrat. 4. Informal appointed official having special powers to regulate or supervise an activity. Czar is the most common form in American usage and the one nearly always employed in the extended senses "any tyrant" or informally, "one in authority." But tsar is preferred by most scholars of Slavic studies as a more accurate transliteration of the Russian and is often found in scholarly writing with reference to one of the Russian emperors.
