WHO AM I CHALLENGE!!!! CHAPTER 30
WHO AM I? • I helped start the revolution in Russia without ever being there. The leaders of the Bolsheviks took my ideologies & turned Russia into a Communist state. You could say…I left my “Mark.”
WHO AM I? • I returned back to Russia & helped start the revolution. Everyone was so happy to see me that they cheered when I stepped off the train. I was known as the father of the Revolution.
WHO AM I? • I was a self described holy man. I helped the czar’s son with his hemophilia. I ended up being very influential in czar Nicholas’ II regime…but it didn’t turn out so well for either of us.
WHO AM I? • After my death in 1825, Russia fell into 100 years of turmoil.
WHO AM I? • My attempt at being a leader in Russia was a miserable failure. I kept on fighting in World War I even after everyone told me to get out. I should have seen what happened to Nicholas after he kept fighting in the war…our temporary government was only temporary for me as a leader too.
WHO AM I? • I took absolute control of the Bolshevik party by climbing the ladder of power & put my supporters in positions of power. I changed my name, because it literally means “man of steel.” I guess I was the first Superman.
WHO AM I? • I turned Russia into police state. I didn’t trust anyone…including sniveling smart-aleck teenagers. I had teachers give me reports on all their students.
WHO AM I? • I tried my best to make changes in the Russian country, but even that made people mad. I ended up being assassinated.
WHO AM I? • I was determined to turn Russia into an industrial monster. I put in place my 5 year plans which were high successful.
WHO AM I? • The Russian people still love me to this day. They have kept my body encased in a casket where people can still view my handsome face even to this day.
WHO AM I? • I took a lot to kill me. In 1916 a group of people tricked me into eating poisoned cakes – that didn’t work. So then they decided to shoot me. Well, that didn’t work either. So they ended up throwing me in the river where I finally drown.
WHO AM I? • I made a number of mistakes which eventually led me to have to abdicate my throne.
WHO AM I? • I freed the serfs. I thought it was a good idea, because everyone was complaining. But after I die my son ends up changing all my reforms.
WHO AM I? • I wasn’t technically responsible for the pogroms (violence against the Jews) in Russia, but I sure didn’t do anything to stop it. My police & soldiers just stood by as the Russian natives destroyed Jewish homes & synagogues.
WHO AM I? • I started from humble beginnings. Although I would be just an assistant librarian, I would become China’s greatest revolutionary leader.

WHO AM I? • I was the leader of the Muslim League of India. I fought those greedy #@%^!^$ from Great Britain & tried to gain independence for India.
WHO AM I? • I hate the influence of the Ottomans had upon us. We need to become more westernized. Everyone in our country need to wear Western-style business suits & we need to get rid of those awful fezzes.
WHO AM I? • The slaughter at Amritsar infuriated me & caused me to fight the British injustice by using non-violent tactics.
WHO AM I? • I am brilliant. What can I say? The Greeks kept invading our homeland & I had enough. I led our nationalist soldiers to fight back & I became the first president of our New Republic.
WHO AM I? • I modernized Persia. I set up schools, built roads & railroads. I also changed the name of our country from Persia (which those awful Greeks gave us) to Iran, which we like much better.
