Vladimir Lenin

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin was a Russian revolutionary and Bolshevik communist politician, who led his followers of the Bolshevik communist party in attempting to overthrow the Russian autocracy during the Russian Revolution in 1917. However, Russian monarchist forces led by Tsar Michael brutally crushed the Bolshevik uprising. Lenin and other principle instigators of the failed revolution were captured and sent to a gulag in western Siberia where they presumably died.
