Well, for me, it gets complicated (as usual). Whether or not mine is truely an actual person, I would say Hou Fuguo jiangjun Hua Mu Lan, Lady General of the Wei nation. But if she is in fact not real, I would say Zhuge Liang because he is the only one of the major figures of the fall of the Han Dynasty, who lived to reach Longevity.

If I should name one single person who definitely made a significant and lasting difference for all Danes - or rather all Scandinavians - it would be Niels Ebbsen..
 
We have discussed him earlier HERE

Constantine XI Dragases Palaiologos.
 
I found him highly endearing as an adolescent because of his consistent courage in the face of just about hopeless odds. To be able to perform so competently, and with such virtue, in such an impossible position is truly a remarkable and heroic thing.

Oh, wow, that's an interesting question and probably has more than a few answers. If I were to choose one right now, I would go with Saigyo foremostly because he had (probably) a very good and promising position in the Imperial Court (might have been a different court actually, can't remember that well) but he was able to give it up and embark on a life of travel. While doing that, his composed poetry became an icon of the way of thought and inspired countless others as well. Plus, it's very very good. :)

Marcus Cicero would have to be mine. Its obviously coloured by the fact that he is one of the few ancient figures for whom private correspondence between himself and a friend has survived (Thus giving us an insight into his personality) Where Cicero alive today, I could easily see him as the power behind the throne in somewhere like the US (As an influential senator) or the UK (De facto Prime Minister controlling the strings of someone like Ed Miliband)

For me, it is Emperor Gwanggaeto, historian Shin Chaeho and admiral Yi Sunshin.

Thank the Maker Cicero is not wasting his talent pulling the strings of Ed Miliband.

I'll go with Horation Nelson. His brilliance at sea and his cunning in political matter were what prevented the French from taking over Britain.

Hey are you the "Logic" from Hip Hop elements several years ago?
And also, I would go with Alexander Hamilton, although he doesn't receive much recognition his brilliance and sacrifices made America a success, when the country was so fragile.

Marcus Cicero would ought to be mine. Its clearly colored by the very fact that he's one amongst the few associate degreecient figures for whom non-public correspondence between himself and a lover has survived (Thus giving U.S. an insight into his personality) wherever Cicero alive nowadays, I may simply see him because the power behind the throne in somewhere just like the U.S. (As associate degree authoritative senator) or the united kingdom (De facto Prime Minister dominant the strings of somebody like impotency Miliband)

For me, the heroes are those that contributed to make humankind more human. First in the list is a religious character like Jesus, because I think change society from Roman brutality to some more bearable. Also, Father Las Casas who defended the dignity and rights of Native Americans. The figure of Ghandi and Luther King also come to my mind.
Also, freedom fighters are in my mind, specially those small guys that combated more powerful evils, like Lautaro, Sandino and Victor Jara in Latin America, Crazy Horse in the U.S., Robin Hood in England, Joan of Arc in France, Mulan in China and many heroic figures from around the world.

Owain Glyndwr, who managed to destroy English rule in our Country, make important foreign alliances, bring in a French army that got as far as Worcester despite its being led by feudal halfwits and survived as a guerrilla for at least fifteen years, refusing an English pardon.   His programme has remained that of patriots in our Country until now.

Otherwise it would be the Mahatma or Mandela or the lady in Burma, but they seem a little foreign.
