Lenin-circa-1887c
Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known as Lenin, around 1887, the year his elder brother was hanged for taking part in an attempt to assassinate Tsar Alexander III. The execution is thought by some to have been a turning point for young Vladimir, though he was already quite radical anyway.
