Yumjaagiyn Tsedenbal

Yumjaagiyn Tsedenbal (1916 - 1991) was the communist leader of Mongolia from the 1940s to the 1980s. During his political life, he served as prime minister, president, and general secretary of the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party.

Although Tsedenbal became general secretary in 1940, the party continued to be dominated by Horloogiyn Choybalsan, widely considered to be the Mongolian answer to Joseph Stalin, until the latter's death in 1952.

Tsedenbal is remembered in Mongolia for successfully maintaining a path of moderate socialism during the Cold War.
