Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov Lenin
Person Male Born 22/4/1870 Died 21/1/1924
Founder of the USSR. Born and died in Russia. Political theorist and Communist revolutionary. Reviewing a book on Lenin in the Observer, 23 October 2016, Nigel Jones wrote: "... once in power Lenin proved a tyrannical, murderous despot ...". Visited London 6 times between 1902 and 1911. Big fan of the British Museum and its Library. Sarah J. Young has a very readable page about Lenin in London.
From Idealogical Commentary: Theme song for Lenin: "I was born under a squandering Tsar".
