Kim Jong Il, the Supreme Leader of North Korea, died on December 17th leaving his already unstable country in a state of uncertainty.
In 2006 I profiled Kim Jong Il which you can read here. As I wrote then, there are a lot of different versions of Kim Jong Il’s birthchart floating around because of the mystery surrounding his birthdate. Although his official biography gives his birthdate as February 16, 1942 Soviet records show that he was actually born in 1941 but that his birthdate was later changed so that he would appear to be 50 years of age at the time of his father’s 80th birthday celebration. The noon birthchart that I’ve posted uses the actual birthdate of 1941. This birth data has the lowest Rodden Rating of XX according to and there’s probably not much point to further investigation.
What would be more interesting would be to profile Kim’s successor, his third son Kim Jong Un. As with his predecessors his actual year of birth is a mystery. Various news sources quote “intelligence sources” as giving his date of birth as January 8, 1984 but without verification I am hesitant to use this date since it is little more than rumor at this point. His official year of birth is 1982 but it is widely thought that this date was assigned because it echoed the official year of birth of his father Kim Jong Il.
