    Default Your Top 5 most revered historical figures

    There have been a lot of people on this Earth that have done a lot of stuff. Who are some of the people from days past who you personally admire?


    Oh btw, the "5" is only a sugestion, feel free to put more or less if you wish to do so. And by "historical" I'm refering to someone no longer alive.

    Well I have always been into Egypt and my most favorite pharaoh was Queen Tea. I know she was basically a evil well kinda evil ruler bent on power but still. The way she got it and the way she held on is inspiring.

    Benito Juarez is a god amongst men in my home country. Every other historical figure I could care less about.

    I forgot about Diocletian. Great emperor man.

    Mohammed Mossadeq
    Douglas MacArthur
    Snorri Sturluson
    Layne Staley

    If you're under 18 I don't expect you to know who Mossadeq or MacArthur are.

    5.) Andrew Jackson (7th President of the United States)
    Arguably the most badassed president of the US. Jackson is hardcore incarnate. Renowned for his toughness, he was nicknamed “Old Hickory."

    On January 30, 1835, what is believed to be the first attempt to kill a sitting President of the United States occurred just outside the United States Capitol. When Jackson was leaving the Capitol out of the East Portico after the funeral of South Carolina Representative Warren R. Davis, Richard Lawrence, an unemployed and deranged housepainter from England, either burst from a crowd or stepped out from hiding behind a column and aimed a pistol at Jackson which misfired. Lawrence then pulled out a second pistol, which also misfired. Jackson attacked Lawrence with his cane, prompting his aides to restrain him. Yes, his aides had to restrain the president while he laid the beat down to a would-be assassin!

    4.) Frank Costello
    One of the lesser known of the big, big time Mafiosi, Frank Costello was one of the primary influences of the infamous character, Vito Corleone, The Godfather.

    Nicknamed the "Prime Minister of the Underworld", he became one of the most powerful and influential Mafia bosses in American history. Costello was, while ruthless and violent when needed preferred to operate using his political connections and charisma to achieve his ends. His reign as boss of the then Luciano crime family was incredibly profitable, with rackets running from coast to coast. Even after his retirement, many Mafia bosses visited Costello to seek his advice and opinions, and simply to pay their respect.


    3.) Horatio Nelson (1st Viscount Nelson)
    Possibly one of the most bad arsed admirals in history, Lord Nelson became particularly famous during his time in the Napoleonic Wars. Nelson was noted for his ability to inspire and bring out the best in his men: the 'Nelson touch'. His grasp of strategy and unconventional tactics produced a number of decisive victories. Some aspects of his behaviour were controversial during his lifetime and after: he began a notorious affair with Emma, Lady Hamilton while both were married, which lasted until his death. Also, his actions during the Neapolitan campaign resulted in allegations of excessive brutality.

    He was wounded several times in combat, losing one arm and the sight in one eye. His death at Trafalgar secured his position as one of England's most heroic figures. Numerous monuments, including Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square, London, have been created in his memory and his legacy remains highly influential.

    In 1797, at the battle of St. Vincent, he was asked by his officers not to wear his medals, as he was such a conspicuous target. He responded ‘In honour I gained them, and in honour I will die with them’. And, in his crowning moment of hardcore, he refused to see the signal from his admiral to call off his attack at the battle of Copenhagen. He put the telescope to his blind eye and said ‘I have only one eye – I have a right to be blind sometimes… I really do not see the signal’.


    2.) Napoleon Bonaparte (Emperor Napoleon I)

    I noticed I am a fan of those more ambitious types, Napoleon is possibly one of the greatest generals and leaders in modern history. Napoleon brought Europe crashing to its knees. Conquering a great portion of Western Europe and through a series of political manoeuvres having an even greater sphere of influence.

    Even further reaching, his series of laws, the Napoleonic Code, centralised administration of governmental departments, higher education, forbade privileges based on birth, allowed freedom of religion, and specified that government jobs go to the most qualified. It also contained a tax code, created road and sewer systems and the Banque de France—the country's central bank. And is still in use today.

    1.) Peter I of Russia (Peter the Great)
    This was a man of true ambition. He was willing to dress as a commoner and learn, hands on, the trades and methods of Western Europe and transfer this knowledge to his Russian people. He was aware of how behind Russia was in terms of knowledge, technology and society and dragged a backwards country kicking and screaming into the (then) modern world.

    His ambition to ensure Russia had a true seaport, and the violent and bloody cost in the war to gain it may be a source of controversy but did serve the country fully. Finally, the way in which he died, of hypothermia to save one of his drowning soldiers is definitely worthy of respect.

    I would have to say Catullus Carmina for one of his poems and
    Wilfred Owen. Not many people would know Catullus but a few may know Owen.
    Odi et amo. quare id faciam, fortasse requiris?
    nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.
