Stalin is known to have had at least three children. His son Yakov (1907-1943) was the eldest, whom Stalin had with his first wife, Yekaterina Svanidze. Yakov went on to serve in the Red Army during the Great Patriotic War (World War II), during which he was taken prisoner by Germany. The Germans tried to use Yakov as an incentive to entice Stalin to exchange prisoners between Russia and Germany, but Stalin infamously denied the offer to regain his son. Yakov apparently committed suicide during his imprisonment.

Stalin's next two children came from his marriage with Nadezhda Alliluyeva. His son Vasiliy (1921-1962) also served in the Red Army during the Great Patriotic War. When his father died, Vasiliy fell into disgrace with the new government and was imprisoned until 1960 (though he was later placed under house arrest). He died of Alcoholism in 1962.

Stalin's only daughter Svetlana (1926--) has caused quite a stir in her life. When she fell in love with a Jew more than twice her age, Stalin exiled her lover. She married another Jew to her father's reluctance, and after that marriage ended, she wed the son of Andrey Zhdanov (Stalin's culture watchdog), whom she shortly divorced. After her father's death, she sought political asylum in the United States, where she lives today.

Allegedly, Stalin had another son during his pre-Revolution exile in Siberia, but little is known about him.

He did not have any children with his wife, but it is under contemplation that he fathered one or more of his mistress's (Inessa Armand's) children.

The essential difference between the two is that Kerensky was a capitalist while Lenin was a socialist/communist. Kerensky wanted to continue Russia's part in World War 1 and not change the system of ownership of land. Lenin wanted to end Russia's part in the war and redistribute land from its owners to the peasants that worked them. Kerensky allowed dissent. Lenin did not. Kerensky did not exile, imprison or execute people who did not follow his orders. Lenin did. Kerensky was democratic. Lenin was autocratic.
