    As if Hitler did anything right. His empire lasted a grand total of 12 years, and he ruined the concept of nationalism for everyone.

    Genghis Khan is where it's at.

    There are plenty of incredible people who we've probably never heard of. Of those I have heard of:

    * Mahatma Gandhi - advocate for nonviolence and a vegetarian
    * Paul Dirac - brilliant scientist.
    * Albert Einstein - brilliant scientist
    * Isaac Asimov - extremely intelligent, prolific writer.
    * Cesar Chavez - nonviolence advocate and a vegan

    There are many people who left a remarkable mark in history but if I would have to name one, I would first of all go with Prophet Muhammad(pbuh). It is because he was a prophet in all spheres, be it life, science, law etc etc. What he said so many years ago is still valid today and is being proven right by science as well.

    Then, I would name Mahatma Gandhi. He was a man of principles. He ended colonialism in India without the use of any force. He followed non violence and Satyagraha. He fought not only for Indians but for Africans also who were suffering from the injustice of aparthied.

    Then I would go with King Akbar. He was the one who united India irrespective of class, creed, relegion etc. After so many disturbing years India experienced unity under a commen supreme rule.

    I think that Jane Austen should also be included in the list. It is because she dared to right about strong and determined women in those times when women were thought of as mere objects. She never travelled too far but her books never reflected this thing, instead they always proved her intellegence and talent

    Although Genghis Khan actually killed more people than Hitler, if you don't count all those who died in the Asian theatre of World War 2 (which was Japan's fault).

    For me: Homer, William the Conqueror, Robert Bruce.

    2. Alexander the Great

    3. Bismarck

    4. Napoleon.

    Jack the Ripper. Killed five prostitutes in White Chapel, he was never caught, never punished. A horrible act and an incredible crime, worth to be mentioned.

    Henry VIII, he was pretty epic in more ways than one It depends upon what you'd define as epic though.
