Leaving Moscow for his European Tour, confronting a mob outside the Kremlin who didn't want the Tsar to leave:

"Destiny may ride with us today, but there is no reason for it to interfere with lunch."

I am not sure about serbian but some Tatar ancestors he really had. Family of his mother Elena Glinskaya were descendants of Tatar Murza who had moved from Orda to the court of Great Prince of Lithuania Vitovt. Chronicles call him Lexad; later he was baptized as Alexander. They say also that Vitovt gave him towns Glinsk and Poltava; that's where their surname came from.         & nbsp;         May be he had some serbian blood in his veins also (the questions of blood are the most complicated and unsure ones)- I just don't have any accurate information about it.

Oh, sorry, Socrates, your question has just somehow slipped out of my view!

At the moment I can't remember its title, but I'll tell you as soon as I recall it.
