Svetlana Stalina, the daughter of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, was born on February 28, 1926. Though brutal to the Russian public, Stalin was said to fawn over his daughter; she became a celebrity on the order of Shirley Temple in Russia, with thousands of babies named in her honor. Here, she is pictured here with her mother Nadiezhda Alliluyeva, Stalin's second wife, in Tblisi, Georgia, in 1926.
