Jordan's theorem on finite subgroups of $GL_n(C)$ asserts that each such group is contained in an algebraic subgroup of $GL_n$ which is toral-by-finite and of bounded complexity. As such, it exemplifies the idea of trying to relate various kinds of linear groups to linear algebraic "envelopes" of some kind. I will discuss some variations on this theme.
