Honestly, I would have a tough time narrowing it down to just one favorite.

My Marilyn Monroe I love her so much have a lot of stuff with her on it from underwear to shoelaces and a small collection of her magazine covers like playboy and time magazines some from the 50s and 60s too.

I agree about Marilyn Monroe. I also admired Princess Diana too.

I've always been interested in how literature treats Napoleon in the background of forefront of the text: Aubrey Maturin novels, Les Miserables, Count of Monte Cristo, War and Peace, Conrad's 'The Duel'... this shorty was the most important man in the world 200 years ago and now he is the blip of a footnote to history in American schools.

Any sort of interpretation of Will Shakespeare. I don't even really care for the man, but he's had so many extreme interpretations of him in novels, movies, and television, that it's fascinating how one person can be viewed by different people.

King Arthur is also another interesting figure, especially since his origins are shrouded in mystery to begin with (possibly a Duke or Roman General in real life).

I like all of the Founding Fathers (Ben Franklin, Sam Adams, etc). I'm a history nerd when it comes to that time period

Oh so many. In fiction, my favorite character is Dagny Taggart, followed by Hank Reardon. (Atlas Shrugged)

In history, about a million people.

Thomas Jefferson is pretty much on the top of that list. I think I would literally burst into tears of awe if I got to speak to him. I have a special affinity for all the founding fathers, but it's Jefferson who speaks to me on a very emotional and mental level. Honestly, I gravitate towards those with a once in a generation mind and spirit. Ayn Rand, Helen Keller, Stephen Hawking, Sun Tzu, Socrates, Shakespeare, etc. The list goes on and on.
