Author of War and Peace and Anna Karenina which are widely considered as 2 of the finest novels ever written.
His first novel, Childhood (the first of his autobiographical trilogy with Boyhood and Youth to follow) was published in 1852 under the pseudonym L.N.  to conceal his identity.
Fought in the Crimean war which is thought to have inspired War and Peace.
His parents came from ancient Russian aristocratic families.  He became increasingly troubled by the privilege this brought him and developed an interest in the lifestyle and culture of the peasantry. This extended to making his own shoes in the traditional peasant way.  He also gambled and gave away away much of his wealth.
Some consider Tolstoy’s essays on peace to have influenced the work of Gandhi in his pursuit of nonviolent resistance,.  Gandhi called Tolstoy "the greatest apostle of non-violence that the present age has produced". 
The family home, Yasnaya Polyana, is now a museum
By the time of his death, Tolstoy was a cultural icon and had followers world-wide. News that he was dying drew huge crowds and news cameras, making his death an international news story. He died at Astapovo trainstation, the same place his fictional character Anna Karenina came to her end.  More than three thousand people lined the streets to see his coffin carried back to his home Yasnaya Polyana.
