Yes the dali lama is debateable thought the former tsar is someone who i greatly respect considering he had a chance to be king again but choose to serve his people as prime minister

In what way is the Dalai Lama debateable? Whether he held power or was a good leader? Between 1912 and 1959 Tibet was a sovereign nation, both de jure and de facto, to answer the first. To answer the second, when he was actually in power, while being able to override and re-decide anything done in the country at the time, as he was considered an infallible theocrat, the 14th Dalai Lama, recognizing his lack of experience, wisdom, and worldliness, given he was a child and then early adolescent, deferred almost completely to the Kashag, a governing council, like a Cabinet, of sorts, made up of high-ranking lamas, secular ministers, and, I believe, ex-officio, the commander of the Tibetan Army, to basically run the country. Thus, most of the legacy of the actions and activism of the Dalai Lama are during his government-in-exile, to be honest.

The British Empire recognized it, more or less, and in the pre-WW2 era that was more than enough clout.
