Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, born Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov on April 22, 1870, was a revolutionary leader, politician, and theorist who played a pivotal role in the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the founding of the Soviet Union. He was the leader of the Bolshevik Party, which seized power during the October Revolution of 1917, overthrowing the Provisional Government that had come to power after the February Revolution earlier that year.

Lenin’s ideas, primarily outlined in his works such as “What Is to Be Done?” and “State and Revolution,” advocated for the establishment of a vanguard party of professional revolutionaries to lead the working class in overthrowing capitalism and establishing a socialist state. He argued for the necessity of a dictatorship of the proletariat to transition society to socialism.
