I need Heroes of the past, Im open for suggestions?

I need a group of Heroes from the actual past and/or Myths and Legends. Not anything completely fictional. Im writing a story and I need a couple of Heroes to add into it.

What I Have so Far:

Gilgamesh (Famous Demi-God king...Came before beowulf)

Beowulf and his magical sword Hrunting

King Aurthur and Excalibar

Joan of Arc

Robin Hood



Fergus Mac Roick and Caladbolg (Irish King - Cut down hills)

Merlin (King Aurthur's right hand wizard)

Miyamoto Musashi ( The most famous Japanese samurai)

Any type of Hero would be great. Doesnt exactly have to be a Hero. Just someone of power and that is widely known and famous for his/her actions. Im also considering King Solomon right now. But any famous Assassins/Knights/Warriors/Witchs & Wizards of the past would be a great help. Just try to keep it before guns were invented. Guns,how unimaginative.

    Siegfried (Sigurd) -was the greatest hero in Germanic legend

    Just because "guns" were already invented didn't mean they had anything to do with people being a hero or not.

    My personal favorites were Queen Boudicca & King Leonidas of Sparta.

    Hope this helped you out.

    Instead of Solomon, you should really consider David, as he was not born into royalty, slayed the bear, lion, and most importantly, the giant Goliath, and was the warrior king, not to mention poet, musician, and according to the bible, the man after God's heart.
