Giuliano Della Rovere

Wladyslaw Raginis, possibly the man with the largest balls in human history.
Basically, he took 750~ Polish soldiers (Read, barely trained conscripts) and defended against forty-two thousand Nazi troops, with no backup of any kind, for three days.
1v1'd Byzantines nearly to the point of collapse and Sassanids to the point of destruction
Bayard, the knight without fear
>So badass François 1er asked to be knighted by him
>Shot in the spine while covering a retreat he asked to be left behind
>Mourned by his enemies after he died in their camp
Fritz Christen badly wounded and alone, held the line against hundreds of soviet troops and a formidable tank presence for three days, killing over 100 soviet solders and knocking out 13 enemy tanks.
Hans Ulrich-Rudel. Destroyed hundreds of Soviet tanks, planes, vehicles, four armoured trains, 150 artillery pieces, a destroyer and the Soviet battle ship Marat. He did this with his Ju-87 armed with anti-tank guns. He also ran 6 kilometers, swam a frozen river, escaped capture while being chased by soviet infantry with dogs.
Cesare Borgia.The guy could easily unify Italy 300 years before the Savoia's did. Mighty as a lion, cunning as a fox. Aut Caesar,aut nihil.
In the shadow of blind zealotry, the fires of enlightenment only burn brighter.
>Fought the world's first and only near-bloodless Crusade that won all of Outremer for Christendom by simply negotiating for it and still allowing Muslims to enter Jerusalem and keep their shrines.
>King Scientist who wrote one of the first books (if not the first) on Ornithology, was well educated and even studied migration patterns.
>Created Italy's first college dedicated to literature, helped create the modern Italian language.
>Gave a Polar Bear to the Sultan of Syria.
>Told the over-zealous Pope to get fucked, Kings ruled their own countries and were not vassals of the Church.
>Got excommunicated four times, not a single fuck given.
