Joseph Stalin followed Lenin as leader of the Sovoey Union.

After Lenin's death, he was followed by a triumvirate of Joseph Stalin, Grigori Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev. Stalin eventually ousted them and took virtual sole power in 1929 but did not become the dictator he is remembered as until about 1932.
