2. By the way Vick now lay on the number of inquiries on this subject.

Vladimir Lenin was born in Simbirsk (now Ulyanovsk), the son of an inspector of public schools Simbirsk Ilya Nikolayevich Ulyanov (1831-1886) - the son of a former serf of Nizhny Novgorod province Nikolai Ulyanov (spelling names: Ulyanina), married to Anna Smirnova - daughter Astrakhan tradesman (according to the Soviet writer MS Shahinian, descended from baptized Chuvash). Mother - Maria Alexandrovna Ulyanova (nee Blank, 1835-1916), a Swedish-German-born mother and a Jewish - on the father. I. Ulyanov rose to the rank of State Councilor.
In 1879-1887 years Vladimir Ulyanov studied in Simbirsk gymnasium, which was led by FM Kerensky, the father of Alexander Kerensky, the future head of the Provisional Government (1917). In 1887 he graduated from high school with a gold medal and entered the law faculty of the University of Kazan. FM Kerensky was very disappointed with the choice of Volodya Ulyanov, as advised him to enter the historical-verbal faculty of the University because of the big successes of younger Ulyanov in Latin and literature.
Also in 1887, 8 (20) in May, his older brother - Alexander - was executed as a member of the People's Will conspiracy to attempt on the life of Emperor Alexander III. Three months after the receipt of Vladimir Ilich was expelled for participating in student riots caused by the new charter of the University, the introduction of police surveillance for students and campaign against "unreliable" students. According to the inspector of students affected by the student uprisings, Lenin was in the forefront raged students, almost with clenched fists. The next night, Vladimir among forty other students were arrested and sent to the police station. All those arrested were expelled from the university and sent to the "place of the homeland." Later, another group of students left the University of Kazan in protest against repression. Among voluntarily departed from the university was a cousin of Lenin, Vladimir Ardashev. After petitions Lyubov Ardasheva, aunt of Vladimir Ilyich, he was sent to the village Kokushkino Kazan province, where he lived in the house until the winter of 1888-1889 Ardasheva years.

Soon Lenin became interested in the workers' liberation movement. In the fall of 1888 Ulyanov was allowed to return to Kazan. Here he joined one of the Marxist circles organized by NE Fedoseyev, where he studied and discussed the works of Marx, Engels and Plekhanov.
