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.

Probable wrong link to another section of Wikipedia[edit]

In the section Personal Life there is this sentence "The Tolstoy family left Russia in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution" where the words Russian Revolution point to the URL https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Revolution. This URL points to information to the 1917 revolution which happened after Tolstoy's death. A better link would be to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1905_Russian_Revolution which is the Revolution referenced on the Personal Life section.

And why would they live Russia after the 1905 Revolution? No regime change. Dimadick (talk) 09:25, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Editing necessary: minor typo[edit]

Under the "Religious and Political Beliefs" section, there's this passage: "The attack on China in the Boxer Rebellion was railed against be Tolstoy. "

It should clearly be "by" instead of "be", I attempted to edit it myself but the Leo Tolstoy entry is protected from editing. Ivanxvoz (talk) 20:21, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

You are right, and I did it for you. --Herbmuell (talk) 13:35, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
