    I was looking at a poll for the top 100 historical figures in BBC History Magazine a while ago. I was curious as to which historical figures other people admire or are simply are interested in. (Doesn't have to mean you to always agree with said figures, however).
    Mine are:
    Elizabeth I
    Catherine of Aragon
    Nikola Tesla
    Sylvia Pankhurst
    Anne of Denmark
    Cicero
    Clodia Metelli

    I have always been intrigued by Rasputin and the Romanovs; there are so many ways you can debate whether it was Rasputin that was responsible for the downfall of the Romanov family, or if it was in fact Alexandra Romanova for allowing Rasputin in too close with political affairs.
