There are so many I can come up with, but I'm going to go with my childhood inspiration, and that would be Queen Cleopatra. This woman was a force to reckon with. She had the brains, and she put them to good use. I especially love the narrative of how, despite her father being a mere drunk and a joke to the people he ruled over, Cleopatra turned the table around and made a reign for herself. As they poked fun of her father's habits and their kingdom, she fired back comments in the languages that the others would use. I don't think she gets enough credit for her wit and intelligence as she does for being seductive. She knew how to work her charm and was respected and admired by both Caesar and Antony. I can go on about this and so many other figures, but who would you choose?

I love chess, and for me, my favorite person is Bobby Fischer, the world chess champion. Ok, he had his issues with life and the government, but overally, he was a very dedicated player and from his games, you can learn alot about life and how to handle things that life throws at you. Also, his view on how international politics should be handled were quite sorber albeit radical.

It's merely one of the well-known names I'm familiar with. However, after hearing your point of view, I'm going to read about him. Thank you very much for sharing your personal favourite!

I'm pretty fascinated by Mary Shelly. She is the author of Frankenstein and a truly badass woman. Every time I hear a fact about her life I find myself in awe of her. I'd really like to know how and why she turned out the way she did and under what circumstances she did the things that she did. I'm also similarly fascinated by Oscar Wilde. However, one of the people I would love to have a conversation with would-be Vincent Van Gogh. I'd like to know how he died and if he really did lie to protect some teens. I'd want to ask him about his work and maybe see if he would paint with me.

Yes, absolutely! I'm also curious as to how she went about doing what she did and why she did it. Your questions for Vincent Van Gogh have piqued my interest as well!

I'd like to choose Napoleon Bonaparte, who was a good emperor of France and was an ambitious man. He contributed everything he had. A kind person and his rules making a lot of changes in the country which helps many people gives benefits. The best part was when he was exiled from Britain.

Because you stated it was the best part, I'm now really interested in learning more about his exile from Britain. Thank you for taking the time to respond!
