The Bolshevik Revolution is the October 1917 Revolution in Russia. In 1917 there were two revolutions. The first was the February Revolution in which Tsar Nicholas II was overthrown and a Provisional Government was put up in place of the Tsarist government. The Provisional Government was not a Marxist/Communist government. The second was the October Revolution in which Lenin and his Bolshevik Part followers overthrew the weak Provisional Government and imposed a Marxist government in Russia. The October Revolution is called the Bolshevik Revolution because that is when the Bolsheviks, later to be known as the Communist Party, took control of the country.
The Bolshevik Revolution is also known as the October Revolution of 1917. There had been a revolution in February 1917, but that just eliminated the Tsar in favor of a provisional government. In October, Lenin and his Bolsheviks swept in and took control of the provisional government in St. Petersburg, giving the Bolsheviks effective control of the government.
Vladimir Lenin was the leader of the second revolution, the one referred to as the October Revolution. Alexander Kerensky was leader of the Provisional Government at the time of the October Revolution.
The Bolshevik Party led the October Revolution of 1917. There was another revolution in 1917 called the February Revolution, the the October Revolution is commonly referred to as the Russian Revolution, because it resulted in the establishment of the Communist government and the Soviet Union.
The Russian revolution, also known as the Bolshevik Revolution, or the October Revolution took place in the year 1917. Two revolutions took place that year in Russia, in which the first, known as the February Revolution, when the Tzar of Russia abdicated his throne, and the provisional government took power. The next revolution was, in October, when the Bolshevik's overthrew the provisional government.
Vladimir Lenin led the "second part of the Russian Revolution." This was the October Revolution also called the Bolshevik Revolution which completed the change in government from Tsarist to Provisional Government to Communist.
The answer to this question could be Tsar Nicholas II or it could be Vladimir Lenin. The February Revolution was caused by Tsar Nicholas's inept running of the government and the millitary. On the other hand the October Revolution was caused by Vladimir Lenin when he orchestrated the takeover of the Provisional Government in the October Revolution.
Vladimir Lenin led the Bolsheviks in engineering the October Revolution in Russia.Vladimir Lenin was the leader of the October Revolution, since he was the leader of the Bolshevik Party, which staged the coup to depose the Provisional Government of Russia.
The October Revolution was the second of the two Russian Revolutions in 1917. The October Revolution, also called the Bolshevik Revolution, is when Vladimir Lenin and his Bolshevik followers took control of the Russian government from the Russian Provisional Government headed by Alexander Kerensky. It put he Bolsheviks, later called Communists, in charge of Russia. Vladimir Lenin's October Revolution was not a revolution of the people. It was an armed insurrection or military coup by the Bolshevik Party alone. It did not remove Tsar Nicholas II from the throne. That had already been done in March of 1917.
There was no March Revolution, per se, in Russia. There was the February Revolution and there was the October Revolution. The difference lies in the fact that February on the Julian calendar is the same a March on the Gregorian calendar. Most historians refer to it as the February Revolution, just as they refer only to he October Revolution. Primarily, the February Revolution ended with Nickolas II abdicating the throne and Imperial parliament ( the Duma) taking control of the government by establishing the Russian Provisional Government. The October Revolution ended with the Bolsheviks, led by Vladimir Lenin, and the workers' Soviets, overthrowing the Provisional Government. Lenin was named Chairman of the Peoples Commisars of the RFSFR on November 8, 1917.
The first head of the Provisional Government after the February Revolution was Prince Georgy L'vov from March 2, 1917 to July 9, 1917. When he resigned. Alexander Kerensky became the next head of the Provisional Government until it was overthrown on October 25, 1917 by Lenin and the Bolsheviks in the October Revolution.
The Russian Revolution, which consisted of the February Revolution in which Tsar Nicholas II was forced to abdicate and the Bolshevik Revolution known as the October Revolution or Red October, in which the Bolsheviks (later known as Communists) deposed the Provisional Government and took control of the country.
There were two revolutions in Russia in 1917, one called the February Revolution and one called the October Revolution. As to the February Revolution, Kerensky embraced it and later became the leader of the Provisional Government that had been established in place of the Tsarist government. As to the October Revolution, he opposed it unsuccessfully and ultimately fled the country to avoid arrest and probable execution.
At the inception of the Russian Revolution, the government was the monarchy of Tsar Nicholas II. After the February Revolution, the government was the Provisional Government formed after the Tsar resigned in order to maintain order until a Constituent Assembly could be elected. After the October Revolution the government was more like an oligarchy being run by select members of the Communist Party only.
The October Revolution, is also known as the Soviet Revolution or Bolshevik Revolution, refers to a revolution-as part of the Russian Revolution-that began with an armed insurrection in Petrograd (also regarded as a coup d'état by the worker and soldier masses) traditionally dated to 25 October 1917 Julian calendar (7 November 1917 Gregorian calendar) It was the second phase of the overall Russian Revolution of 1917, after the February Revolution of the same year. The October Revolution overthrew the Russian Provisional Government and gave the power to the Soviets dominated by Bolsheviks. It was followed by the Russian Civil War (1917-1922) and the creation of the Soviet Union in 1922. The revolution was led by the Bolsheviks. Bolshevik armed forces began the takeover of government buildings on 24 October; however 25 October (JC) was the date when the Winter Palace (the seat of the Provisional government located in Petrograd, then capital of Russia), was captured.
Trotsky's Red Army had no role in the October Revolution, since it was not yet in existence on October 25, 1917. Trotsky's Bolshevik dominated Military Revolutionary Committee (MRC) within the Petrograd military garrison is the military force that had a role in the October Revolution. The soldiers in the garrison gave their allegiance to the MRC instead of to their own commanders when the Provisional Government was about to send the garrison to the front to fight the Germans. The MRC thus turned the Provisional Government's own military force against it. The Provisional Government was powerless to stop the Bolshevik military coup that was the "October Revolution."
Tsar Nicholas Romanov II was overthrown in the February Revolution. Alexander Kerensky and the Provisional Government were overthrown in the October Revolution.
