Who are the 25 most important people in history?
25.) Mahatma Gandhi
Everyone has their list, and everyone is right. Name yours and justify it. Everyone will argue that some of your list is wrong, and everyone will argue that some of you list is right. No one has the exact list of 25, but you have yours, and for you it is the right list.
William the Conqueror
Isabella of Castile
Otto von Bismark
Elenor of Aquataine
Orville & Wilbur Wright

2) Leonardo Da Vinci
3) Carl Sagan
4) Albert Einstein
6) Thomas Jefferson
8) Nickola Tesla
9) Nicolaus Copernicus

A few men you didn't find on this list: Christopher Columbus, Mohandas Gandhi, Thomas Edison. I find too much fault in these men to make them greater than the ones listed above, so I don't feel they should be added to the list. They were important, but not as great or significant as the listed.

Important Event: the World Wars! Important People: Everyone involved with those wars! Answer how about the industrial revolution? or the neolithic revolution? Answer Gavrilo Princep in my mind is the most important person of the 20th century. By shooting Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914 his act…ions led directly to WW1 and indirectly to WW2. As such, he is arguably responsible for over 100million deaths, the collapse of European world hegemony, the rise of Communism, and the Cold War to list but a few. He has a lot to answer for. (MORE)
From a scientific perspective I would say that the most important event in history was the Big Bang. But you were probably asking about human history, not cosmic history. The human race as we know it (homo Sapiens) probably resulted from a single mutation in an earlier hominid species, and that migh…t have been the most important event in human history, although we have no historical record of it. Since that is a hypothetical event, it may also not be what you are looking for. Limiting myself to known historical events, the choice is tremendously debatable, but I tend to think that the adoption of monotheism by the ancient tribes of Israel may have proved to be the most important event, in terms of its consequences for human history. There really is no answer for that question. It all depends on perspective and focus. Try to narrow it down a bit. The "Big Bang" never happened. The universe, earth, and everything else isn't an accident. God created each and every single thing for a reason. If you don't believe me, that's your problem. (MORE)
Toyotomi Hideyoshi was an extremely evil, cruel man who failed to invade Korea and China. His main interests were getting drunk. He was best known for being gay. He was the man that united the fighting Japan, but it was said that it was his wife who did most of the work. He hated western white peopl…e and thought all black people were born to be slaves for whites, who he thought were born to be savage and wild. He was always drunk and murdered anyone that he thought was ugly. Toyotomi later got caught murdering his wife and got murdered himself by his son. (MORE)
Because without it we wouldnt learn from the mistakes others have made. we learn from the past to make a better future.
The most importants events in music history would be- 1. When Thomas Edison invented the phonograph making music available as recordings, allowing different forms of music to be heard, and allowing musicians who couldn't read music to learn by ear, effectively ending the reign of classical music. …2. The Slave trade, discovery of the new world, formation of America, and immigration to the united states, all allowed for many different kinds of musical cultures to mix and be heard on record (see above). Before this, different kinds of music can be traced back to different cultures throughout time, the only kind that we know alot about today being orchestra music which was pretty dominate because, it was the only music loud enough to be heard in big halls, and it could be written down in musical notation for other musicians to learn, so that today we know exactly what Mozart composed hundreds of years ago. This naturally was a setback in that it favored richer, higher social class elites, as many people at the time didn't even know how to read language, let alone music. 3. After all this mixing of musical cultures in the first half of the 20th century was the big bang of music, known as rock and roll, a mixture of all musical genres to form one new big genre, from which all subsequent genres derive from in heritage. 4. Rock and roll had a major setback in 1959 when the Buddy Holly Plane crashed. 5. but in 1964 the beatles and other british invasion bands brought rock and roll back and changed music forever. (MORE)

hi here is my answer, . Well, a man named Juan Ponce De Leon was very important. He was a Spanish nobleman. He had heard rumors about the Fountain of Youth so he wanted to find it. He set sail and he landed on Florida. He had no luck in finding it, but he decided to settle there. He came back from… Spain with 250 men and 50 horses but he was defeated by the Native Americans. SO he was very important to Florida. And I know this because of a school project. (MORE)

I would say that number one is Johannas Gutenberg. He invented the printing press with movable type. This was a groundbreaking invention, and without him, and the printing press, knowledge wouldn't have spread nearly as fast, and the world would be nothing like what it is today.
Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and George Washingtonwere a few of the most important people in US history. Other peoplewere Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, andMartin Luther King Jr.
hmmmm... i think it was Alexander the Great, Confucius and Albert Einstein .. i don't know whether it 's true or not..
Depends on what you mean by "important," if you mean what world leaders have had the greatest impact, or the most influence, then you could look at leaders like Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Ghangas Khan, Ramses, Nebuchadnezzar, Wiston Churchill, Adolf Hitler, of course these are all political lead…ers. There are many different types of "world leaders," some have held no political office at all, but still had great world impact, such as Martin Luther (The German Theologian and Reformer) and Martin Luther King Jr. (The Civil-Activist). This question needs to be a little more specific. (MORE)
A highly subjective question requiring such an answer. But since music evolved and still does all, composers, to a greater or lesser extent are 'most important'.. Just three examples of the impossibility of a simple answer -.  Monteverdi - is he any less than Beethoven in the bigger picture? - …how would he have composed for the piano if it existed in his day?.  The French Horn. How would composers scoring for it without valves [hand horn] have dealt with it with valves? - the old composer had to allow time for the player to change the crook, the modern composer knew a split second movement of the finger on the valve did the same to enable the player to [for example] change Key etc..  Patronage. A composer in the employment of a 'Patron' composed what the Patron wanted - the style and kind of music required. The composer had very little lee-way. Indeed much of their music was like our 'canned' music in shops - purely back-ground. Even early opera was incidental until a 'favourite' started to sing.. Without the constraints of patronage Beethoven composer music for the piano that was factually impossible to play properly on the pianos of his day. (MORE)

Yes and no, you use history to become a citizen of the United States but you use math everyday...it just depends on what you need the subject for The most important subject is language, because without language you can't learn any other subject.

The most important revolutions in history aren't neccessarily socio-political revolutions. 1) The 2nd agricultural revolution: Brought agriculture more modernized, with better techiques, technology and in general, better farming. This increased the food surplus and led to the development of cities.… 2) The Industrial Revolution: Brought in the widespread use of factories, made people more efficient and drastically changed ways of life. 3) 1st Agricultural Revolution: 3 Field system and other improved techniques created a food surplus and allowed people to specialize jobs, which led to further developments. 4)French: Brought democracy and a government by the people for the people to a nation known for arrogant, unconcerned, overly wealthy monarchs and aristocrats. I put this over the American because it not only strived for equality and fairness, but it also had to overthrow a old monarchy to do it. 5)American: A bunch of rag tag farmers, colonists loyal to a monarchy declare their independence from the worlds most powerful nation. This revolution was a model for many of the documents and such of the French revolution. (MORE)

History is a record of names and deeds, and since Civilization everywhere is male centered, and maleness is considered the right stuff, the essential virtue so to speak, most of its important women have been anonymous. If they had been male, their names would be known. Women whose names are known …tend to be famous or infamous depending on whether they have satisfied or outraged male sensibility and expectations. There are important women whose names have become bywords: Xanthippe, the wife of Socrates, as the perfect shrew; Mata Hari as the spy; Delilah, Jezebel, the list goes on and on. There are many women famous for enacting male roles as warrior maidens and statesmen. But in truth, was Cleopatra or Joan of Arc or Elizabeth a more important person in history than Florence Nightingale or Marie Curie? Of incalculable importance are the usually anonymous mothers, sisters, teachers, lovers, wives and daughters of the great men and women whose names and deeds are known. We all remember Pericles of Athens, but who remembers Aspasia, his mistress and advisor? (MORE)
You don't really specify in an aspect of importance? However Englishmen and women have made history for a number of reasons. So I'll name a few: William Shakespeare 1564 - 1616 Firstly if you haven't heard of him I seriously query your schooling, for he is considered a literature God. Shakes…peare's work express many different emotions and themes, love, revenge, war and so on. His plays, poems and sonnets continue to be read because those themes can still be connected to ones own time. Such as falling in love, (Romeo and Juliet) and even domestic relations (Taming of the Shrew). His writing outshone those of his time and England is renowned for its rich literature and continues to be respected for it. Other infamous British authors are the Bronte sisters (Charlotte, Emily, and Anne), Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. Sir Issac Newton 1642 - 1727 He was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer and much more. He is considered by many to be 'one of the greatest and most influential scientists who ever lived'. Newton discovered universal gravitation and the three laws of motion in which dominated the scientific view of the psychical universe for the next 3 centuries. He advanced the Scientific Revolution. There are so many, Sir Winston Churchill, the Suffragettes who fought for women's rights fiercely, Margaret Thatcher. The list truly goes on... (MORE)
For the majority today, it would be the Japanese attack on PearlHarbor. For that small number of Native Hawaiians (About 5.5% ofthe population) it would be the overthrow of the Monarchy.
Adolf Hitler, Nero, Caligula, Genghis Khan, Atilla Hun, Tony Blair, Winston Churchill, Ted Bundy. Answer #2: There are no evil people, only evil actions. 'Evil' is that which destroys, or prevents from coming into being, a desired state of equilibrium. There are all too many people willing to …throw the lives of others into disarray in order to achieve their own desired state of equilibrium. This is unfortunate and often tragic; but to dismiss them as 'evil' is to fail to address the real issue. If condemnation and punishment had any value, we would have built a heaven on earth by now - but all it does is perpetuate the problem. The gentlemen named above would have their own list of 'evil people', and the greatest thing the lists would have in common is that they would all exclude the list-compiler. (MORE)
-- Some people are important in history because they changed the world in their time. Still others are famous in the history of a country beause they helped to found it, advance it, or defend it. (Alexander the Great; the American Founding Fathers; Napoleon Bonaparte) -- Others changed the course of… history over the centuries. (Jesus of Nazareth, Mohammed, Buddha) -- Some were explorers and adventurers who traveled the world. (Christopher Columbus, Marco Polo, Hernan Cortes) -- Some people made spectacular inventions that shaped modern society. (Marconi, Edison, Einstein) -- Some are famous in the arts or music.

TheExodus, as central as it was, served as an introduction andpreparation for the Giving of the Torah. The traditional time frame for both these events was the year 1312BCE. (MORE)
This is a matter for debate, and some would argue that certainevents were more important than others. In reality, it's impossibleto say, but probably the four most important events in Welshhistory were the Plantagenet conquest of Wales under Edward 1stafter the slaying of Prince Llewellyn the Great …in 1285, theGlyndwr Rebellion of 1400, which temporarily re-established Walesas an independent nation for a decade until it was crushed byPrince Hal (later Edward 5th) in 1410, the Act of Union signed byEnglish King Henry 8th in 1536 which officially abolished Wales asa separate nation and made it a part of England up until it'sofficial Disestablishment again in Edwardian times, and the moregeneralised 'Welsh Revival', which began in mid-Victorian times andlasted up until shortly before the outbreak of WW1. This latter wasa period during which the Welsh people began to rediscover theirsense of nationhood and separate identity, resulting in a hugeupsurge in national pride and a demand to be taken seriously by theBritish Government. It was led to a large extent by the Welshreligious revival, with prominent and respected ecclesiasticalWelsh figures preaching the importance of Welsh identity to theircongregations in churches and chapels alike across the Welshnation. This led to the Disestablishment of the Church of Wales in1920, and effectively began the process of Wales's re-emergence asa recognised entity once again, and it's being 'placed on the map'in both national and international public consciousness- it sowedthe seeds of change that have led to the position Wales is intoday, with a devolved law-making administration and a Nationalistparty with MPs in the Westminster Parliament.
