On November 16, 1581, crazy Russian Tsar, Ivan the Terrible, grew angry and physically assaulted his daughter-in-law, Yelena Sheremeteva, for wearing ‘unconventionally’ light clothing. Ivan’s son and heir, Ivan Ivanovich heard his wife’s screams and rushed in to protect her. He and the Tsar had a heated row and Ivan the Terrible bonked his son and heir on the head with his scepter. Hard. He bonked him really hard. Ivan Ivanovich died three days later from the bonking. So, in Russia, spare the scepter and keep the heir alive.
