The old ruler of Tibet's a refugee (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tsar

Here is my best explanation:

'the old ruler' is the definition.

'of tibet's a refugee' is the subsidiary indication.

'of' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.

'tsar' can be found hidden inside 'tibets a refugee'.

(Other definitions for tsar that I've seen before include "Formal rulings on Islamic law; was aft (anag.)", "Tyrant", "Autocrat", "Monarch of old Russia", "Ruler finally executed", "Title given to the kings of Bulgaria", "Russian leader", "One associated with 26 [KREMLIN]", "Word derived from Caesar, used by European rulers since 1547" and "Title of Russian emperor".)
