History is full of people who were stranger than fiction. People you'd want to meet. People you'd pray to avoid. People who changed the world.
This book gives complete descriptions and character stats for 52 of the most interesting people in history, ready to serve as patrons, allies, enemies or role-models. From the man who united China to the REAL Dread Pirate Roberts; from the voice of an empire to a roistering aristocratic astronomer with a silver nose; from a doctor so brilliant that his foes ran him out of town, to a king with 1,200 wives but not a single heir!
It's written for GURPS, but it's easy to translate into any system.
