    The strain of leading a revolution, governing, and fighting a civil war physically aggravated the wounds on Lenin from previous attempted assassinations. He continuously had strokes that he never truly healed from, and by his third one he found himself landed in a wheel chair and unable to speak. At age 53 Vladimir Lenin died of his fourth stroke.
