What impact did Karl Marx had with the Russian revolution?

We must be clear that when speaking of the Russian revolution, there are two possibilities. One was the women's day revolution leading into the Kerensky provisional government, or the one that soon followed: the so-called "October Revolution". Usually, when referring to the Russian Revolution, the Lenin-lead October Revolution is implied. Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto which described the Marxist communist political ideology. This ideology was the one that revolutionaries Lenin and Trotsky wanted to implement in the Russian society with the Russian revolution. Marxism was however not fully adopted. Lenin made alterations to the ideology and created Leninist Marxist Communism, usually reffered to only as Leninism. Leninism stipulates that the armed revolution Marx predicted would not be successful unless guided by a revolutionary elite. Marx had stated that the revolution would simply erupt as a natural response to evils inherent in class-based societies, and did not seem to think that Lenin's guidance was needed. However, Marx's impact on the Russian revolution was purely in ideology. Marx took no active part in the revolution, as he was dead at the time of it (1917)

One result of the revolution in Russia was that?

There were many results to the Russian Revolution of 1917. One of the most important of which were the murder of the Romanovs and the impending Russian Civil War. In addition to the above, there were two revolutions in Russia in 1917. In March of 1917, soldiers refused to fire on striking workers, and the Duma rejected Czarist commands to dissolve. Realizing he had lost control of the government, Czar Nicholas II abdicated the throne. This resulted in the creation of a new Provisional Government. Conditions did not improve in Russia after the first revolution. The second revolution was in November of 1917. This was the Bolshevik revolution which brought on the communist dictatorship and most relevant at the time was Lenin's withdrawal from WW1. This was a promise he made to the Germans in order for them to help him return to Russia from his exile.

Who led the revolution against the Czars of Russia?

Lenin ended up taking charge. There were two Russian Revolutions in 1917. The first, the February Revolution was not led by anyone. It began as a spontaneous demonstration by some women who were complaining about having to wait in line in the cold for hours to get bread. Eventually more and more people came into the streets demonstrating about other problems. The disturbances grew and spread to other cities. Tsar Nicholas II could not get the police or military forces to restore order and his ministers convinced him he had to abdicate to stop the rioting so he did. The Provisional Government under Prince Georgy Lvov then took over, but Lvov had not started or led the revolution. It just happened. In the second revolution, the October Revolution, Vladimir Lenin planned and staged what was actually a military coup by his Bolshevik followers agaisnt Russia's Provisional Government by that time under Alexander Kerensky. It was not really a true "revolution" in the usual sense of the word.

Who was a leader and a hero of the Russian Revolution Lenin Stalin or Marx?

Lenin was the leader and hero of the October Revolution of 1917, but had nothing to do with the February Revolution in 1917. Stalin was a subordinate to Lenin at the time so he was not a leader at all. Karl Marx had died by the time of the revolution, so aside from planting the ideas of socialism, communism and a revolt by the people in their minds, he had nothing to do with the revolution itself. well this is helpfull
