VASILIS (Βασίλης).  Greek form of Basil (q.v.), meaning "kingly."  Usage:  Albania, Greece, Russia.
    Vasilis Papakonstantinou, a Greek singer.

... With Feodor's death murders became rife on the Russian throne.  They were originated by the Czarina Sophia, and were made a lasting institution by Peter the Great.
    Feodor wished to have as his successor, not his second brother Ivan, but Peter, who was the youngest.  Peter's succession was backed up by the Narishkins, for Peter was born of Alexis's second wife, née Narishkin.  But Vasilis Galitzin, Feodor's favourite, did not wish to give up power, and made a coup de'état in favour of the Princess Sophia, who was his mistress...
