I guess any thought of changing the name back to Berlin ended with World War II.

Two months before the start of the First World War.

I guess there is appeal in the image of an Old English summer.

And they did have an Empire that spanned much of the globe, including our two respective countries (Canada and Australia).   Not bad for a tine little island.  Our countries are dotted with cities named after important British figures from that time.

Even Rome of the Caesars was nowhere near as vast.

Cool to read something one of our members wrote.

So yeah, Putin is Tsar, in everything but the title itself.

There was a 1972 episode of the show, Night Gallery, called Rare Objects, in which a collector had among his collection, famous historical people who had mysteriously disappeared (among them, Judge Crater and Amelia Earhart).   

Among that collection was the Grand Duchess Anastasia who had "disappeared in 1918".

Now, I know that this was made decades before the mystery of Anastasia was finally solved, but, even then, didn't most people assume (late proven correct) that she'd been murdered along with the rest of the family.   She never disappeared like Crater and Earhart did.

In the 14 Dec 2018 issue of the Wall Street journal there is an article about making Putin Tsar!?

He already is a de facto Tsar. 

I saw a clip of him striding down the corridors of the Kremlin, with band music playing and servants opening doors for him as he approached.   I could easily see a Tsar getting the exact same reception.

The only difference is that the Tsar was, to most Russians, a mysterious and distant figure.  However, television and the Internet allows Putin to reach the people, no matter where they are.
