God, there are so many I don't even care to list them all, but I can mention the ones which cross my mind right now.

The barbarian defiers of Rome, like Vercingetorix, Brennus, Arminius, Alaric, Fritigern and his Goths at Adrianople. Basically all the distinguished leaders of the Celtic and Germanic tribes, who challenged the far more advanced Roman superpower.

People who started out with little, but which managed through strength, courage and ambition to carve their way to power. People like Robert Guiscard and Oda Nobunaga fit well into this cathegory.

And wise rulers, like Octavian, Justinian, Charlemagne and Saladin.

Is this the possible beginning of a "Robespierre Appreciation Society"?

"To punish the oppressors of humanity is clemency; to forgive them is cruelty."

"Terror is nothing other than justice, prompt, severe, inflexible."

1. Alexander the Great (no introductions needed, my childhood idol!)

2. Pyrrhus (great commander and dreamer who never fulfilled his over ambitious visions)

3. Diogenes of Sinope (cynic philosopher, unique personality overall)

4. Epictetus (Stoic philosopher, his ideals are close to genuine Christian morality)

5. Ecumenical Patriarch Photius (great scholar and brilliant personality)

6. Socrates (simply great)

7. Aristotle (not only a superb philosopher, but one of history's first serious scientists as well)

8. Basilius II Bulgaroctonus (one of the most successful emperors of Byzantium)

9. Niccolo Macchiavelli (cynic scholar, but his general ideas are the ancestor of modern realpolitik, no matter if strong governments deceive us by imposing political correctness)

10. Mahatma Gandhi (superb philosopher and leader, more Christian than most of the Christians I know)

11. Archbishop Chrysostomus of Smyrna (holy man and martyr of the Greek nation, preferred to stay where he lay and get brutally murdered by the Turkish mob, instead of escaping)

12. Theodoros Kolokotronis (brilliant tactician and commander, a true hero of the Greek revolution against Ottoman rule)

13. Marshall Erwin Rommel (real soldier and patriot)

14. Marshall Georgy Zhukov (humanity owes the Russian officer much)

15. General Nikolaos Plastiras (heroic Greek officer and good politician)

16. General George Grivas (mastermind of the Cypriot uprising against British rule in the '50s)

17. Leonardo Da Vinci (no comments...)

18. Jim Morrison (a true poet, one of my favorite singers)

19. Nikolaos Kavvadias (great Greek poet)

20. Ioannis Metaxas (Greek dictator who, on the contrary with other fascist leaders of his time, proudly denied the entry of Italian troops in Greek soil and decided to fight)
