 US Bazaar.com : Encyclopedia Pages : Nachman of Breslov
Nachman of Breslov (Hebrew: נחמן מברסלב) also known as Reb Nachman of Bratslav, Nachman from Uman, or simply as Rebbe Nachman (in local Yiddish reb Nokhmen Broslever) (April 4, 1772 – October 16, 1810 (18th of Tishrei)) was the founder of the Breslov Hasidic dynasty.
He taught that his followers should spend an hour alone each day, talking aloud to God in his or her own words, as if "talking to a good friend." This is in addition to the prayers in the siddur.
Breslover Hasidim today do not believe Rebbe Nachman was the Messiah, but they do believe that the light of his teachings continues to illuminate the paths of Jews from many disparate backgrounds.

 Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Nathan of Breslov
Nathan of Breslov (January 22, 1780 – December 20, 1844), also known as Reb Noson, was the chief disciple and scribe of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, the founder of the Breslov branch of Hasidic Judaism.
He became the leader of the Breslover Hasidim—but not the Rebbe, because Rebbe Nachman did not appoint a successor or establish a dynasty.
In late 1834, after the Breslover synagogue opened in Uman, Rabbi Moshe Zvi of Savran (the Savraner Rebbe) instigated a smear campaign against Reb Noson and the Breslover Hasidim.

The name Breslov itself comes from the town of Bratslav (which was known among the Jews as "Breslov"), where Rebbe Nachman spent most of the last eight years of his life.
Breslover Hasidism is most unusual in that it has no living rebbe, and has not had one for almost two hundred years.
Breslovers, on the other hand, will sometimes reply that "it is better to have a dead Rebbe who is alive (in his teachings) than a live Rebbe who is dead (in his practice)." Today, there is no single council of elders in Breslov, and no official membership list, although some groups do maintain mailing lists.

The first and greatest Rebbe according to Hasidism was its founder Israel ben Eliezer known as the Ba'al Shem Tov ("Master [of the] Good Name").
His disciples who rose up or were selected for positions of leadership and their successors have thereafter been honored with the same title, Rebbe, which gradually came to imply of itself a higher spiritual status.

Hasidut might have branched off into many dynasties and focuses of specific expression of hasdic though as developed by different dynasties but one cannot say that an expression was solely owned by one dynasty.
For example even though one dynasty focus on dance or scholarly studies doesn’t mean that the other sects didn’t use these expression in their service of G-d too.

In fact, Besht took sides with the Talmudists in the disputes with Frankists (Jacob Frank's followers) and was even one of the three delegates of the Talmudists to a disputation between the two parties held at Lemberg in 1759.
But since Hasidism, immediately after the death of its founder, was divided into various parties, each claiming for itself the authority of Besht, the utmost of caution is necessary in judging as to the authenticity of utterances ascribed to Besht.
He declared the whole universe, mind and matter, to be a manifestation of the Divine Being; that this manifestation is not an emanation from God, as is the conception of the Kabbalah by Mitnagdim, for nothing can be separated from God: all things are rather forms in which God reveals Himself.
