Shakespeare may have been a very influential figure from that century, but it's difficult to say he was the most significant during the 16th century.

I might disagree on the 20th and say Gandhi though.

21st will go to Elon Musk, after all his mars plan is looking more and more realistic especially with him perfecting the landing. He has also dabbled in AI and Electric Vehicles and solar energy.

Just kidding, but seriously what about people like Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs who have revolutionised technology? (Although I agree that Bitcoin has an uber impact on society’s progression too)

what has Gandhi's impact been worldwide other than as an icon?

Martin Luther King replicated his tactics in America, and achieved success. Which spurred similar movements on, like the Native American civil rights struggle. Gandhi's methods are also seen in part of the South African fight for ethnic liberation. Peaceful protest and demonstrations across the world followed his example.

I'm going to have to agree, maybe the founders of Google though? They're revolutionaries and have created a world where information is available in the truckloads via. Google (or atleast it's much easier to navigate). For the 20th Century, it might be Alan Turing or Sir Tim Berners Lee, maybe Phlegming?

He is very high on my list of all time legends, but I'm not keen at all on the idea of humans colonising Mars just yet because if we find microorganisms we will never know if they were due to contamination or are genuinely martian

I would have said Flemming for the 20th century, but Einstein is also top. Choices.

What about Alexander Fleming? Are we not counting an Antibiotic that saved so many lives?

my lecturer told me that Alexander Fleming is the most overrated person in history and he's absolutely right. All Fleming did was notice that the culture was killed by the fungi.

Fleming didn't have the skills to turn it into a medicine so he handed it over to Howard Florey and Ernst Chain who invented Penicillin.

He still found the culture that led to Penicillin, regardless if he could do all the work on his own.

I considered Mr Trump for 21st century, but the reality is that for all his bravado and rhetoric he's been largely ineffective. Trump has only managed to secure one major piece of legislation (on Tax) - albeit after months of wrangling, and hasn't even got the wall funded 1 year into his presidency!
