Is place relevant? historical era?

"The nobleman": a historical figure? real person? fictional character?

"He": real person? a generic reference to one of the group of people?

"Led": by example? by exhortation? by literally leading, as in military command? by infuriating "him" with social or political injustice?

The "maybe" for location: because it could have happened in either place? did happen in both places? because it was not specified in the work of fiction?

Is the work of fiction a folklore? fairy tale based on folklore? historically-based novel? science fiction?

Is "he" a human?

I'm assuming the 'this' in the above post refers to Soviet rather than contemporary non russian...

are their occupations relevent?

does he/is the nobleman addressed by a title (such as sir) which would traditionally mean nobility, but now may be used out of respect or as a job title?

Hey, Judgedeadd, did you know you have a puzzle over in Limbo with unanswered questions?

No, it's not my puzzle, Rabrab. It was made by someone else, but without their name in the subject; along came an admin and - seeing my name in the "Last Poster" column - assumed I started the thread and called it [JudgeDeadd]

***SPOILER***

Since, there are no views of solving this, I'll spoil: it was 1924 in the Soviet Union, and the man (A) was going on a train with a few other people. A began talking to one of the men (B), who told him that he is a rich nobleman and has lavish palaces in the country (something unheard of in Soviet Russia). The surprised A was told by another passenger (C) that B was just insane, that the car is filled with insane men going to a psychiatric hospital, and that C is their caretaker.
Soon afterwards, yet another passenger (D) began reaching for a penknife that C left. Our hero, thinking that D is insane and wants to kill everyone with the penknife, attacked him and tried to get the knife from him, only to learn that D was sane and was simply getting the knife he lent to C.

And so ended the most confusing riddle ever.
