How well do you know your historical figures? Every now and again, as and when I get round to it, I will post sets of ten historical figures. They could be world leaders, artists, musicians, inventors, soldiers, sailors, airmen, and any generally historically significant people.

 

Only one rule presides; put your answers in a spoiler, don't ruin it for everyone else.

 

Righto, here's the first set, we'll start simple here.

 

#1

 

#2

 

#3

 

#4

 

#5

 

#6

 

#7

 

#8

 

#9

 

#10

 

Beware, some of the pictures may be of the person in their younger or older days.
