In the annals of human history, billions of human beings have walked on this planet. Yet, in the sands of time, which of us has become the most admired, the nicest, most important, most successful, or all around greatest person ever born? Well, we can’t really determine this. However, a group of people on an internet forum, with no official credentials will try. This is a contest for The Greatest Historical Figure Ever! Rules I’m mainly following the Cartoon’s example of running a greatest thread. I’m placing the Wikipedia article under each person so that no one is voted out for being obscure.
