Reclaw was the last Klingon emperor of the Second Dynasty, who was assassinated in a coup d'etat by General K'Trelan. His entire family, including his daughter Shenara, was executed. When the Third Dynasty came into power, another Klingon was given the title and name of Emperor Reclaw to create the illusion of an unbroken line. (DS9: "You Are Cordially Invited")
The fate of Reclaw and his family is parallel to the fate of Russian Tsar Nicholas II, when his entire family was shot to death by rebels and replaced by the Soviet Union.
