Overview

Kim Il-Sung was the founder of the "Democratic People's Republic of Korea", better known as North Korea in the western world. Born on April 15th, 1912, he died on July 8th, 1994. He founded the Democratic People's Republic in 1948 as both leader of nation's Communist Party and army. Even today, Kim Il-Sung is the president of North Korea, having been named the "Eternal President of the Republic". His birth-date is a holiday in North Korea.

Kim Il-Sung's life has received little documentation outside of official news sources within North Korea, which frequently contradict external sources. After his death, his son, Kim Jong-Il ruled the Democratic People's Republic until he too died in 2011. Kim Il-Sung's youngest grandson, Kim Jong-Un, is the current leader of the nation.
