No, it's not the word for caesar...[change source]

"The word "Kaiser" is the German word for Caesar, the name the ancient Romans used for their emperor." This simply isn't true, even not in simple english. The word Kaiser just means Emperor, similar to the russian word tsar means Emperor, too and is not a synonym for Caesar.

Ceasar comes from the latin, hairy. Tsar comes from Ceasar. Kaiser comes from Tsar. --Gwib -(talk)- 14:43, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
