True Fact:

Edouard de Stoeckl never made it back to Russia with the check. Weeks later, the Czar's agents tracked him to Las Vegas where they found him living in the Emperor's Suite in the Chunka-Chunka-Bummer Casino Hotel. He and his 20 female 'escorts' were down to loose dollars and the CCB security staff was trying to evict them.
