Post subject:  Favourite historical figures other than Marie Antoinette

Thought it would be interesting to find out all our favourite historical figures, with the exception of Marie Antoinette and other French Revolution related people :)

Mine are (in no particular order) Mary Queen of Scots, James I of Scotland (not to be confused with James VI of Scotland and I of England!!!), Richard III of England, Eleanor of Aquitaine and of course, Robert the Bruce :king:

Bonnie Parker..... federal authorities despise her and her significant other, but I've always seen Bonnie and Clyde as the Robin Hood of the Depression Era, for they gave the money they took to poor families living in a dirt countryside who harbored them. She was very tiny too.... 4'10", 92 lbs.

Oscar Wilde....I am glad to see that his name has popped up. The Nightingale and the Rose is very dear to my heart.

Susan B. Anthony
• There is not the woman born who desires to eat the bread if dependence, no matter whether it be from the hand of father, husband, or brother; for any one who does so eat her bread places herself in the power of the person from whom she takes it.

Geesh, how could I forget. The most important historical figure of all to me was Jesus Christ.

I feel sorry for her. She was accused of doing hideous things. However she didn't do anything.
