1. Pyotr Bagration – Pyotr Bagration was a Russian general and prince who rose to prominence during Napoleonic Wars. Bagration was the alleged lover of Tsar Alexander's sister Catherine. He was subsequently portrayed with a supporting role in Tolstoy's epic novel Peace. He was born to a minor princely family descended from the Bagrationi dynasty. His father was an officer in the Imperial Russian Army, which Bagration also enlisted in 1782. Bagration began his career serving in the Russo-Circassian War for a couple years. Afterwards he participated in 1788. Later he helped capture Warsaw. During the Italian and Swiss campaigns against the French, he served with distinction under Alexander Suvorov. In 1805, Russia joined the coalition against Napoleon. The combined Russo-Austrian army was defeated in December, where Bagration commanded the right wing against the French army under Jean Lannes. Years later he commanded Russian troops in the Danube. War between France and Russia resumed in 1812. Bagration commanded one of the other commanded by Barclay de Tolly. The Russians failed to stop the French advance at the Battle of Smolensk.Pyotr Bagration – Portrait of General Bagration by George Dawe
2. Mariam Baouardy – Saint Mariam Baouardy, O.C.D. was a Discalced Carmelite nun of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church. Born from Syria and Lebanon, she was known for her service to the poor while refusing forced conversion to Islam. In addition, she became a Christian mystic, canonized by the Catholic Church. Her path to canonization solidified on 6 December 2014 with the recognition of a final miracle needed for her canonization. In the consistory of 14 February 2015, Pope Francis announced that she would be canonized on 17 May 2015; she was canonized at the Vatican. None of her preceding brothers had survived infancy. When they were later blessed with the birth of a daughter, they named her after the Virgin Mary, out of gratitude. She was joined by Boulos, two years later. Baouardy's parents both died from an illness in 1848, only a few days apart. The sister would never see one another again. She was raised in a loving home in comfortable circumstances. As a child she had a marked spirit of religious fervor, choosing, for example, to fast at the age of five. When Baouardy was eight, his wife moved to Alexandria, Egypt, to improve their situation. The night before the wedding, she had a religious experience in which she felt to offer her life to God. Upon being told the following morning, her uncle flew into a rage and beat her severely.Mariam Baouardy – Saint Mariam Baouardy
3. Ofspring Blackall – Ofspring Blackall, Bishop of Exeter and religious controversialist, was born in London. During Blackall's youth his parents resided in Dalston, Middlesex. Blackall graduated BA in 1675, was elected in 1679 to a fellowship, which he resigned in 1687. Blackall was ordained deacon on 11 on 19 December 1680. The university awarded the degree of DD in 1700. Blackall also held the city lectureships of St Olave Jewry from St Dunstan-in-the-West from 1698. It was consequently remarked wittily that he was the'queen's bishop'. Blackall was consecrated at Lambeth on 8 February 1708. He was also instrumental in the institution of charity schools in Exeter. Blackall lived to see the establishment of two for girls, of fifty pupils each. He was consecrated a bishop at Lambeth by the Bishop of London. By a strange twist of fate, Sir William Dawes was on the same date consecrated a bishop at nearby Westminster by the Bishop of Winchester. Dawes later published a posthumous two-volume edition of Blackall's sermons. He came to public prominence in 1699 when he engaged with the Irish deist and pamphleteer John Toland. In his Life of John Milton, Toland had disputed Charles I's authorship of Eikon Basilike.Ofspring Blackall – Engraving by Michael Vandergucht, after Michael Dahl (NPG)
4. John Brough – John Brough was a War Democrat politician from Ohio. Born to an English immigrant and a Pennsylvania-born mother, he was orphaned at the age of 11. He served two years as Clerk of the Ohio Senate. Brough was a trustee of Ohio University from 1840 to 1843. In 1841, his brother bought the Cincinnati Advertiser and renamed it the Cincinnati Enquirer. He then moved to Indiana, where he became President of the Madison and Indianapolis Railway in 1848. Brough later presided over the Bellefontaine and Indiana Railway. His attempt to combat competing lines was the construction of two tunnels as part of an effort to avoid a steep incline at Madison. The company spent more than $300,000 during two years before the effort was stopped in 1855. He left in 1853 when the Madison line underwent a short-lived merger with another railroad company. He was a very corpulent man, as well as being a hard worker. He also defeated Copperhead leader Clement Vallandigham. This prompted President Abraham Lincoln to wire Brough, "Glory to God in the Highest. Ohio has saved the Nation." He took office in January 1864.John Brough – John Brough
5. Cambyses II – Cambyses II son of Cyrus the Great, was emperor of the Achaemenid Empire. Cambyses' grandfather was Cambyses I, king of Anshan. After the Egyptian campaign and the truce with Libya, Cambyses invaded the Kingdom of Kush but with little success. Though numerous scholars link Cambyses to the Sanskrit tribal name Kamboja there are also few scholars who suggest Elamite origin of the name. Jean Przyluski had sought to find an Austric affinity for Kamboja. James Hope Moulton regards Spiegel's suggestions as the best of other etymological explanations of these two names. When Cyrus the Great conquered Babylon in 539 BC, Cambyses was employed in leading religious ceremonies. In the cylinder which contains Cyrus' proclamation to the Babylonians, Cambyses' name is joined to his father's in the prayers to Marduk. On a tablet dated from the first year of Cyrus, Cambyses is called king of Babylon, although his authority seems to have been ephemeral. Only in 530 BC, when Cyrus set out on his last expedition into the East, did Cyrus associate Cambyses with the throne. Numerous Babylonian tablets of the time date from the accession and the first year of Cambyses, when Cyrus was "king of the countries". After the death of his father in 530 BC, Cambyses became sole king. The tablets dating from his reign in Babylonia run to the end of his eighth year, in 522 BC. The traditions about Cambyses, preserved by the Greek authors, come from two different sources. The first, which forms the main part of the account of Herodotus, is of Egyptian origin.Cambyses II – Cambyses II
6. Charles Fielding – He died of gangrene after being wounded in action during the Battle of Cape Spartel, commanding HMS Ganges. Fielding was born the son of Charles Feilding, Anne Palmer. His biographers apparently thought it more important that he was related to the fourth Earl of Denbigh, whose third son his father was. He married a Woman of the Bedchamber of the Queen on 29 February 1772. They had a son, also called Charles, who became a rear-admiral in the Royal Navy. Fielding enlisted at an early age probably following the usual career after starting as a midshipman. In 1762 he was given command of HMS Unicorn, decommissioned after the end of the war. Apparently, he did not receive a new command until 1770, when he was appointed to HMS Achilles as captain of Admiral Sir Francis Geary. Soon after, he received command of HMS Rainbow on which he sailed till he received command of HMS Kent in 1772. During his tenure the Kent experienced an explosion in 1774 in which eleven seamen lost their lives. Apparently, he was not blamed, because he retained his command for the usual term. In 1776 he received command of HMS Diamond with which he transported troops to America, where the American Revolution had begun. He in 1778 temporarily commanded the Halifax Station, where he distinguished himself. As a squadron he was allowed to carry the title of "commodore" though his formal rank remained that of captain. The commotion this incident caused in the Republic would eventually lead to the Fourth Anglo-Dutch War.Charles Fielding – Commodore Charles Fielding

He captained the Brunel-designed leviathan SS Great Eastern which laid transoceanic telegraph cables in the 19th century. He arguably, one of the most important mariners in the 19th century. He helped make the world a global village by connecting continents via submarine telegraph cables - in effect constructing the Victorian age communication network. He was the son of the youngest of 13 children. The family were reasonably well off. From an early age Robert showed a fondness for the sea. He received his early education nearby at Leitrim Place, possibly that of Ellen White, The Murrough, recorded by Slaters Directory, 1846. He joined the crew of the 388 ton barque Henry Tanner, later that same year. Henry Tanner plied the Britain - Halpin's first voyage to Australia coincided with the Australian Gold Rush of 1852. Over half the crew jumped ship to seek their fortunes in the gold fields. Halpin then joined the Boomerang as a third mate. Returning with cargo of "guano", bird-droppings used as fertiliser. Halpin was promoted to second mate of Salem, a clipper on the Australia run before he transferred over from sail to steam ships. Halpin became first officer in Khersonese.Robert Halpin – Tinakilly House Front View
8. John Ainsworth Horrocks – Horrocks was born on Easter Sunday, 22 March 1818, at Penwortham Lodge, near Preston, Lancashire. Peter Horrocks, was an investor/shareholder in the Secondary Towns Association, which aspired to develop secondary towns in the new colony of South Australia. John Ainsworth Horrocks, aged his brother Eustace, aged 16, arrived at Adelaide in March 1839. Impatient to settle on their own land, the brothers named. He returned to Australia in 1842 to attend to financial problems. His second in command was a surveyor who in 1844 had served dutifully as second in command of the ill-fated Darke expedition. An unpaid volunteer in the party was amateur botanist Samuel Thomas Gill. The several hired men goatherd Jimmy Moorhouse, a young Aboriginal employee at his Penwortham station. His injuries included loss of a row of teeth from the right upper jaw. The party returned to Horrocks's home at Penwortham, where he died of his wounds. He is buried at the land for which he had earlier donated to the town. On Horrocks's order, the camel, which had previously attacked other humans, was shot dead. Although Horrocks' expedition thus failed to reach its objective, in 1851 this was achieved by Horrocks's associate John Jackson Oakden. A short biography published in 1906 was derived from Horrocks's diary plus notes written by his sister.John Ainsworth Horrocks – John Horrocks monument at Penwortham, South Australia
9. Aaron Kosminski – Aaron Kosminski was a Jewish Polish emigrant in England, a suspect in the Jack the Ripper case. Kosminski was a Polish Jew who emigrated in the 1880s. He worked in the East End of London where a series of murders ascribed to the Ripper were committed in 1888. From 1891, he was institutionalised in an insane asylum. Police officials described him as a Polish Jew in an insane asylum. Possibly, Kosminski was confused with another Polish Jew of the same age named Aaron or David Cohen, a violent patient at the same asylum. His methods and findings have been criticised. Aaron Kosminski was born in Congress Poland, then part of the Russian Empire. His parents were Abram Józef Kozmiński, his wife Golda née Lubnowska. He may have been orderly for a time. Aaron emigrated from Poland in 1881, likely with his sisters' families. The family initially lived for a while. A nephew of Aaron's was born there in 1881. The family settled in London sometime in 1881 or 1882. His mother, listed as a widow, apparently had joined them by 1894.Aaron Kosminski – Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum, North London. Kosminski was an inmate from 1891 to 1894.
10. Leopold V, Duke of Austria – As the eldest son of Henry II, Leopold was already enfeoffed at Regensburg. He succeeded his father as Duke of Austria upon his death on 13 January 1177. In turn, Leopold reached a agreement with the neighbouring Duchy of Bohemia, determined in 1179. Two years later, he attended an Imperial Diet in Erfurt, where his first-born son Frederick was enfeoffed with the Austrian estate. The next Leopold was enfeoffed by the emperor; this was the first step towards the creation of modern Austria. Leopold is mainly remembered outside Austria for his participation in the Third Crusade. Border disputes with King Béla III of Hungary had initially impeded the duke from accompanying Emperor Frederick on his departure in May 1189. When he heard in 1190, he went to Venice, where he embarked to the Holy Land. Leopold took over command of what remained of the Imperial forces after the death of the emperor's son Duke Frederick of Swabia in January. According to legend, his tunic was blood-soaked after the fights and when he doffed his belt, a white stripe appeared. The new emperor Henry VI granted him the privilege to adopt these colours as his new banner, that later would become the flag of Austria. Acre surrendered on July 12, after the arrival of King Philip II of France and King Richard I of England. Duke Leopold, as commander of the German contingent, demanded rights equal to those of the two kings but was rejected. The emperor probably agreed with King Philip II of France, already on Richard's capture. When Richard left the Holy Land in late October 1192, he found the French ports closed and sailed up the Adriatic Sea.Leopold V, Duke of Austria – Leopold the Virtuous receiving the banner from Emperor Henry VI, Babenberger Stammbaum, Klosterneuburg Monastery, 1489–1492

12. Louis XIV of France – His reign of 110 days is the longest of any monarch of a major country in European history. In this age of absolutism in Europe, Louis XIV's France was a leader in the growing centralization of power. Louis began his personal rule of France after the death of his chief minister, the Italian Cardinal Mazarin. There were also the War of the Reunions. Under his rule, the Edict of Nantes, which granted rights to Huguenots, was abolished. The revocation effectively forced Huguenots to convert in a wave of dragonnades, which managed to virtually destroy the French Protestant minority. His personality shaped his approach. Impelled "by a mix of commerce, pique," Louis sensed that warfare was the ideal way to enhance his glory. In peacetime he concentrated on preparing for the next war. He taught his diplomats their job was to create strategic advantages for the French military. Louis XIV was born to Louis XIII and Anne of Austria.

22. Muhammad Ali Khan Wallajah – Muhammad Ali Khan Wallajah, or Muhammad Ali Khan Walla Jah, was the Nawab of Arcot in India and an ally of the British East India Company.

He was received an Imperial firman appointing him to Viceroy of the Deccan, 21 January 1751. He was recognised as 1763. Raised to the titles of Walla Jah 1760, Sahib us-Saif wal-qalam Mudabbir-i-Umur-i-'Alam Farzand-i-'Aziz-az Jan by Emperor Shah Alam II. Sir John Macpherson, writing to Lord Macartney in November 1781 declared, "I love the old man...mind me to my old Nabob. I have been sending him sheep and bags of rice by every ship. It is more than he did for me when I was fighting his battles." Much of the ensuing war was fought on the Nawab's territory. The British derived income from his jagirs. For a period the situation of the Nawab was a significant factor in Westminster politics. The Nawab had borrowed heavily; and many East India Company officials, in India or in the United Kingdom, were his creditors. By the 1780s issues affecting Arcot were therefore having a direct impact on British politics: the debts of the Nawab mattered in domestic terms.Muhammad Ali Khan Wallajah – Muhammad Ali Khan Walla Jah
