Vladimir Lenin was born on 22 April 1870 as Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov in an educated and prosperous family. He excelled in school and pursued law studies. His revolutionary nature was sparked after his older brother’s execution for his socialist revolutionary activities in 1887. Though, his greatest influence was the study of Karl Marx (1818-1883), the German theoretical founder of communism.  

He practiced law briefly before devoting himself actively to the revolutionary movement, formulating ideas to reform Russia and publishing several of his writings. His teachings attracted many people and were unpopular with the authorities. In 1897 he was exiled in Siberia for three years where he met his future wife N. Krupskaya (1869-1939). After his Siberian exile, Lenin spent most of the subsequent decade and a half in Western Europe. He partook in Marxist activities and emerged as a major figure in the European revolutionary movement. He became the leader of the 'Bolshevik' faction of the Russian Social Democratic Party and created his own propaganda machine part of which was his legendary newspaper “Iskra.”
