Parents death?[edit]

"He was the fourth of five children of Countess Mariya Tolstaya, née Raevskaya. Tolstoy's parents died when he was young, so he and his siblings were brought up by relatives" Mariya Volkonskaya died August 10, 1863. Tolstoy would of been 34 years old. [1] Never mind. The Mariya Volkonskaya page has removed the info about Tolstoy.

Awards and Recognition - there is a major street named after him[edit]

Shouldnt there be an awards and recognition section? One of the most expensive roads in South Asia is named after him. Tolstoy Rd.

Semi-protected edit request on 3 June 2014[edit]

Would you please add an external link to: Taraknath Das' "Open Letter to Count Leo Tolstoy in Reply to His 'Letter to a Hindoo'" in the South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA)? Grace saada (talk) 14:12, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting question.svg Question: Why? What does it achieve, how is it encyclopedic, and how does it improve the article. I have no problem adding it, I'm just wondering what benefit it is suppose to have. Thanks. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 02:05, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 9 July 2014[edit]

Within the "Death" sub-heading, the name of Tolstoy's wife is given wrong and given as 'Sonia', which should be 'Sofia'. Pankhudi123 (talk) 08:58, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done As the article says:-

Tolstoy married Sophia Andreevna Behrs, .... . She was called Sonya, the Russian diminutive of Sofya, by her family and friends.

So either is acceptable - Arjayay (talk) 09:14, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

"Sonia" is mentioned nowhere else in the article besides the one place Pankhudi123 mentioned. CombatWombat42 (talk) 16:29, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done

I have to say, using three different names for the same person is incredibly confusing Sofya, Sophia and Sonia, are all used. CombatWombat42 (talk) 16:27, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
