Yes,-according the book of Robert Service- they did have a calm and quite intellectual household.
He didn't have a "rough childhood", such as e.g. Stalin had with his drunkard father.
In fact, if I remember well, the child-Lenin as the one, who terrorized his siblings.

Due to the fact that all books about Lenin's childhood was made as an alternative of an New Testament chapters about the life of the Christ, it is hard to know the true.
But due to the fact that his mother was a lady in waiting at the court ( there is a rumour about it),
his childhood was very warm and intelligental.

This is a passage from the book Nicholas and Alexandra by Robert K. Massie that describes some what Lenin's brother, Alexander thought of him: "Alexander particularly disliked Vladimir's impertinence, arrogance and mockery of their mother.  Once when her two sons were playing chess, Maria reminded Vladimir of something she had asked him to do.  Vladimir answered rudely and did not move."  Another passage states that the comfortable household collapsed when replying to a census questionnaire, Lenin wrote:  "Nonbeliever (in God) since the age of 16", this was when his dad died of a stroke.

I'm sorry but Lenin doesn't look like he was blessed with good looks (lol), talk about UNATTRACTIVE!!! lol  It seemed like the older he got, the more he started to look like the devil incarnate. lol

I know that Lenin had two brothers (Aleksandr and Dmitrii) and three sisters (Olga, Anna and Maria), but somebody told me that he had a twin! :o
I couldn't believe this and checked it out on the internet - no such remarks to be found.
But the person who'd told me discovered this by watching a program on a channel we have here in Britain.

Admittedly, it is probably just a conspiracy theory - knowing the channel - but I just wanted to clear things up

Thanks (and sorry if this is completely wrong!)

I don't believe that Lenin had a "twin".  The Revolution and the "Party" were considered his twins as he believed so thoroughly in them.

Check out the link above, it has good coverage of Lenin and his family and where he was born and grew up.

Many Romanovs were bald.  Which Romanovs had good hair?

Nicholas II?
