Old unlabelled comment[edit]

What in god's name does this sentence mean: "Like so many other Tolstoys, Count Lev Nikolaevich (1828–1910), more widely known abroad as Leo Tolstoy is cited as one of the greatest Russian novelists of 19th century." I deleted it.

The original version of the article said: "Like so many other Tolstoys, Count Lev Nikolaevich (1828-1910) started his career in the military". It made much more sense. --Ghirla -трёп- 13:04, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

We need to make this at least a disambiguation. Skinnyweed 21:03, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Rachmaninoff reference in Leo Tolstoy article[edit]

The statement that Rachmaninoff was helped to flee Nazis appears to be a factual error. He had left Russia in 1917 and then moved freely between Europe and America. He last visited Europe in 1938, and did not return again due to WWII. It is true that he owned property in Dresden, which he presumed lost after the start of the war. 123.243.22.58 06:14, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Reference[edit]

I just removed the following from the article on Leo Tolstoy since that is already better described here, but I thought I put it here, since it provides a reference, which this article lacks. I haven't checked the reference, but someone here might find it useful: [[Peter The Great]] had granted Tolstoy's family its aristocratic title in 1718.<ref name=larvin>Janko Larvin: Lev Tolstoj. Rowohlt Berlin 2002. 15. Auflage. ISBN 34495500570.</ref> — Sebastian 18:04, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Sweden?[edit]

What is Sweden doing here? If the name (or title) is Swedish, why is that not explained someplace? Student7 (talk) 01:49, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
