List of Dalai Lamas of the Tibetan Empire Till Now

The Dalai Lama of Tibet is the religious head of Tibet. He is responsible for all religious and cultural matters in Tibet. The First Dalai Lama was Gendun Drup,he was born in 1311. In addition, there was one unofficial Dalai Lama named Yeshe Gyatso (declared in 1707) as a pretender for the position of the 6th Dalai Lama, but was never accepted as the true Dalai Lama by a majority of the population.

There have been 14 Dalai Lamas until now. When the Dalai Lama dies the Buddhist Council of Tibet searchs for the reincarnation of him. He is then trained and assumes position of Dalai Lama at the age of 18.
