    Salome, if we're counting people from religious texts. She's my favourite. Other than that, Queen Victoria, Princess Charlotte, Elizabeth Bathory (although, I don't like her, I just think she's interesting), and various other important female historical figures.

    I totally agree. I would have loved to have met Anne Boleyn, Catherine of Aragon and anyone from that period really. I think the women were so brave and strong, and coped in a very different way to women nowadays. Definitely role models especially Catherine of Aragon to me. Strong women through the ages - are my favourite people in History

    Kublai Khan, grandson of Genghis Khan.
    Not only was he a ferocious warrior like his grandfather, he was also a brilliant strategist and he kept peace within his kingdom. If someone challenged his army, however, he took them down.
    Basically, one of the greatest leaders in history. File

    Sojourner Truth, by far. I love how she kinda laughed in slave owners' faces and helped to end slavery. Plus she knew Abraham Lincoln, and anyone who knew him is cool in my book

    Harriet Tubman for being so brave even when the entire South was after her.
    And Princess Diana... just for being pretty and badass! But on a serious note, I admired her for when she talked about bulimia and her struggles in life and the amount of charities that she supported out of her pocket, is astounding.

    I have three:
    Adolf Hitler- He was a poet of speech.
    Charles Manson - Just because I love psychology, and we discuss him a lot.
    All time favourite: Andrew Jackson. The most bad-ass president the U.S. has ever had. He definitely wasn't the greatest, but he was a freaking bad-ass. My favourite story of him is of the time a man tried to assassinate him and failed. If you were going to assassinate Jackson, you better kill him the first time. When his assassin failed, Jackson, an old man at the time, started beating the man with a cane. He would've beaten him to death if he wasn't dragged off the assassin by other people.

    Andrew Jackson - Bad-ass until he finally died.

    Oh, wow. Um...

    Thomas Edison... Charles Babbage... Jules Verne... Ada Lovelace... Grace Hopper... Steve Jobs... Grant Morrison... Isaac Asimov... The list could go on for a really long time.

    All brilliant. Some--especially the last three--completely mad.

    That's such a hard question! There is so many people in History! Maybe Jesus. The Buddha? I don't exactly know, because I could name 10 or 20!

    Hmmm... Donny Hathaway.
    He was a brilliant R&B singer. I'm not usually a fan of R&B, but he was brilliant. He also had one of the most infamous suicides in NYC.

    Queen Boudica. She is the epitome of strong women in history. She was the Celtic queen who fought the Roman army in Britannia. Though she did not defeat them, obviously, her army defeated the Roman legions in her lands and it was never recorded where her true place of defeat was, so no one is sure that she truly passed in battle or if she survived. She was not only a wonderful war hero, but a wonderful representation of female strength and leadership in the ancient world.

    Emiliano Zapata and Franciso "Pancho" Villa. They were in Mexican revolution and they were just so badass! I mean have you heard of the story of how Pancho Villa went out? He went out with a bang, he didn't die so easily. I'm just in love with those two strong men.

    Aslo Harriet Tubman, I loved reading about her story.
