Contest 12/2014: HISTORICAL FIGURES


  • This contest is about people with historical relevance who actually existed (no fictional characters!). Of course "historical relevance" can be seen very differently, but if somebody lived 300 years ago and is still well known today we can assume he achieved something important. No matter if it's science, politics or art.


    To make it an actual contest about history please focus on the time before the year 1950.


    Examples: Julius Caesar, Napoléon Bonaparte, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Adolf Hitler, Elizabeth I, Karl Marx, Aristotle, Cleopatra, Isaac Newton, Leonardo Da Vinci, Martin Luther, Genghis Khan, Marie Antoinette, William Shakespeare, Grigori Jefimowitsch Rasputin, Galileo Galilei, Confucius, Marie Curie, Nikola Tesla, Billy the Kid...

    Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
    Tochter aus Elysium!
    Wir betreten feuertrunken,
    Himmlische dein Heiligtum!
    Deine zauber binden wieder
    Was die Mode streng geteilt;
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
    Wo dein saftner Flügel weilt!
