On December 18, 1833, the national anthem of the Russian Empire, “God Save the Tsar!” was first performed for Nicholas I. It went a little something like this, “GOD you better save the Tsar! He’s Strong and Sovereign and reigns for glory, for our glory! He reigns to make our foes fear! He’s a bonafide Tsar! Not some cheap knockoff from Prussia! God, you’d better save the Tsar! Because the Greatest joy in life is to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women!” Nicholas liked it but thought there should have been even more lyrics about the crushing of his enemies.
