Napoleon Bonaparte, one of my friend on summer camp was ridiculed because he was Ginger as hell, I said that i don't see that we should take an opinion on someone just because of appearance Michel Ney Napoelon Marshal was ginger too :-)

I'm hav black hair btw

But for a secular political figure, it would be Napoleon Bonaparte and American President Thomas Jefferson, but for now, i learned that he was a slaveholder and i abhor holding people as slaves because it plain wrong and Anakin Skywalker was a slave and we all knew how all this ended, in fact, most lowborn white people was in fact slave for the most part XVIII century they ware called serfs and we had serf wars

in XIII century

    Moctezuma II the last Emperor of the Aztecs. Died by the hands of his own subjects trying a way to save the Empire. 

  • Julius Annaeus Seneca (ca.5 BC - 65 AD) A great human being; a great philosopher, and a Great Roman, who had a great sense of humour, yet had the courage to stand against Nero. In the end, his opposition to Nero was his undoing, yet he took his enforced suicide very stoically.

    (One doesn't have to be a famous warrior or General to qualify for greatness)

    PS. That 'great' military historian 'Armouror' [sic] should know that it was the Royal Air Force's fighter squadrons which forced Adolf to change his mind about invading Britain in 1940.

    One squadron in particular - 303 Squadron - all its pilots were Poles. I heard one of them say, "I wasn't interested in shooting down planes, I only wanted to kill Germans". As a German, I have no objection whatsoever. Good for him, that's what I say.

    Fortunately, my Father served as an officer in the Kriegsmarine, therefore not one of that brave man's targets.
