Tsarist Russia
The RUSSIAN EMPIRE (also known as RUSSIA) was an empire that existed from 1721 until it was overthrown by the short-lived February Revolution in 1917 . One of the largest empires in world history, stretching over three continents, the Russian Empire was surpassed in landmass only by the British and Mongol empires. The rise of the Russian Empire happened in association with the decline of neighboring rival powers: the Swedish Empire , the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth , Persia and the Ottoman Empire . It played a major role in 1812–1814 in defeating Napoleon 's ambitions to control Europe and expanded to the west and south.

Drama Film
When used to define a specific genre or type of film or television programme , DRAMA is usually qualified with additional terms that specify its particular subgenre, such as "political drama ," "courtroom drama ," "historical drama ," "domestic drama ," or "comedy-drama ." These terms tend to indicate a particular setting or subject-matter, or else they qualify the otherwise serious tone of a drama with elements that encourage a broader range of moods . All forms of cinema or television that involve fictional stories are forms of drama in the broader sense if their storytelling is achieved by means of actors who represent (mimesis ) characters . In this broader sense, drama is a mode distinct from novels , short stories , and narrative poetry or songs . In the modern era before the birth of cinema or television, "drama" came to be used within the theatre as a generic term to describe a type of play that was neither a comedy nor a tragedy
