    If you could choose anyone's life in history to live, who would it be? This would be from cradle to grave. You would have full control, i.e. just because they won a battle does not mean you would. Consider yourself - as you - reborn into their life.

    I think I would choose to be one of the children of Louis XIV of France. He has created the splendour and majesty of the Monarchy, so I wouldn't need to do that task. I could sponge off what he has made and live a life of utter luxury and be revered by all.

    Or I imagine it would be quite fabulous to be one of Queen Victoria's grandchildren. Your grandmother hides away in Windsor and your father (Edward VII) is a party animal, so the wild parties you can go to in London, and be guest of honour, are limitless!

    I thought he was more of an urban legend than an actual person?

    Real enough, he wrote a book but his exact exact exploits are only known because he wrote about them, so he may have embellished.

    A small price to pay for a life of wealth and almost universal respect. And a memorial. Don't forget the memorial.
