comment How far should I go back in Russian History in order to understand Communist Russia?
Possibly you could also take a look at this question: history.stackexchange.com/questions/2354/… Regarding the book of "1984" I do not recommend making any conclusions on this book: it depicts a very untypical "police state". I cannot imagine anything close to it is reality (especially the quick-changing the propaganda and universally-accepted double-think). I think, it is a very artificial fictitious construction.

comment Does (or did) any monarchy have a limited length of tenure?
@Felix Goldberg, the Soviet Encyclopedia says it was a (military) dictatorship. The crown was not exclusive to the monarch in Rome: there was a civic crown (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civic_Crown) under the Republic. Also the dominate was not hereditary and the head of state was not single. Basically, not a single sign of a monarchy: no single ruler, no inheritance, limited term.

comment Were Roman emperors officially considered kings of Egypt?
The linked Wikipedia article says "Subsequent Roman Emperors were accorded the title of Pharaoh, although exclusively while in Egypt. One Egyptian king-list lists the Roman Emperors as Pharaohs up to and including Decius." So they were considered pharaohs in Egypt?

comment To what extent the Jewish theatre of the late Antiquity resembled the Greek one?
So what a performance was in the theater when the incident described in the film happened (such incident in fact took place)?

So the headdress of Augustus in this statue is just symbolic?

comment Were Roman emperors officially considered kings of Egypt?
This answer contradicts itself: it claims that the emperor "added the land to the Empire of the Roman People" and then it says that "he treated Egypt as his own private and dynastic possession". So, the empire of the Roman people or the private possession? Also the fact that Egypt was considered a part of the emperor's domain does not automatically mean it was a kingdom: there were emperors's and senate's provinces, in those which were near the periphery the emperor exercised direct control. There were many emperor's provinces besides Egypt.

comment Ethnic Germans in Russian service in Poland
-1. It as Peter the Great from whom the prevalence of Germans started. Also this does not belong to the French who were not employed in the same number as Germans.
