I hope this topic is source of information for me and the others in the history , the idea of that topic is to write information about the historical Personalities. For me I will write about Adam, Genghis Khan and Cheng Ho. assuming that from Adam to Obama is 6000 years , so i hope we write about 600 Historical Personalities.

What are you talking about? Is this some project for history? I fail to understand what you are trying to say in this very confusing paragraph?

History of the world : From Adam to Obama

If you want the 600 personalities who've had the most influence on the world you must include the man who invented the fridge magnet.I think her name was Radish.

I'm sorry because the topic was unclear for some members. The aim from that topic is to know new information about historical Personalities.

There is nothing common between Adam and Obama but that they are both human beings.

Why?

This has already been done on Wikipedia, which makes such a thread rather redundant. I doubt Wikipedia will provide 'new' information, but rather what's readily avilable. One would have to browse various journals in ancient history and archeology in conjunction with recent archeological expeditions.

As far as English history is concerned I would include Shakespeare ,Newton,Churchill and the Beatles but I could not write informatively enough about them.The Wikipedia article mentioned by Astronuc seems like it could be an interesting read.

It's not a single article, but there thousands of articles on historical personalities and places. I don't think it necessary to recrease Wikipedia in a single thread.

What about the thousands of people who lived in these places
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...habited_cities

Would the list include all the Roman emperors, Popes and Patriarchs, Greek kings, tribal leaders of all the tribes that have wandered through Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Caliphs, Wazirs, Chinese Emperors and those of SE Asia, Japanese Emperors, Korean Emperors, English Kings, French Kings, Italian Kings, Kings and tribal leaders of Africa, Kings and tribal leaders of South and Central America? Or just the top 10 of these categories?

In fact, in the beginning i wanted share my information in history with the others , also i hoped to know new information from the members, but because English is my third language, so when i tried to write, i discovered that 'this isn't easy' , that's why i put link from Wikipedia. Anyway, i think that i must wait until i improve my English.
Thanks for all

I applaud and commend one's interest in history. However, I think one needs to narrowly define the topic. We have a History & Humanities forum, which has several different threads on history and the ancient world.

An interesting personality is Maimonides, whose "full Hebrew name was Moshe ben Maimon (Hebrew: משה בן מימון‎) and his Arabic name was Abu Imran Mussa bin Maimun ibn Abdallah al-Qurtubi al-Israili (أبو عمران موسى بن ميمون بن عبد الله القرطبي الإسرائيلي). However, he is most commonly known by his Greek name, Moses Maimonides (Μωυσής Μαϊμονίδης)." He was born in Cordoba, Spain on March 30, 1135, and died in Egypt on December 13, 1204.
Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maimonides

He gained widespread recognition and became a court physician to the Grand Vezier Alfadil, then to Sultan Saladin, after whose death he remained a physician to the royal family.
