URSA.  f.  A Slavic form of Latin Ursula (q.v.), meaning "bear." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Also see Urschel, Urschla, Ursel, and Urszula.

URSA.  m.  The king of Ararat or Armenia, whose reign is placed between Minuas and Argistis by M. Lenormant.  He fomented revolts against Sargon, in B.C. 719; and in B.C. 716 joined Mita (Midas), of the Moschians, the Tiberani, and the Minnians, in a war against Assyria, but without success.  In B.C. 715, in return for twenty-two cities, he aided the Minnians in a revolt; but the latter were overrun and conquered by Sargon, who in B.C. 714 defeated Ursa, captured 260 of the royal tribe, and wasted the country.  Muzazir, in Southern Armenia, was stormed, and the gods Khaldi and Bagmastu carried away.  Ursa, who had fled to the mountain, hearing of the loss of his god, Khaldi, committed suicide. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
