Notable figures:

1. Leonardo da Vinci

2. Machiavelli

3. The Beatles

4. Charles Darwin

5. Albert Einstein

6. Pablo Picasso

7. Isaac Newton

8. Nikola Tesla

9. Winston Churchill

10. Archimedes

Notable achievements:

1. First space flight

2. Reqonquista

3. Abolition of slavery

4. Renaissance

5. Astronomy

6. Evolution

7. Paved roads

8. Architecture

9. Advanced military tactics

10. Mathematics

Go ahead and post your own additions.

What an interesting thread...

I'd love to see what would happen if the OP started a thread like this on this forum

But to do that he would have to pay $10 to register.

(I just spent 15 mins coming up with Charlemagne, only to see that you guys posted it before me >.<)

Off the top of my head I can only think of a few, you've gotten most of the recognisable ones.

Achievements
-The minting and milling of coinage.
-The formation of effective military training organisations (Agoge: Sparta)
-The first ever series of wars that were conducted by the papacy (Crusades) ((Not exactly a good achievement, but something I thought was important to mention))
-Formation of religious/military groups such as Templars, Hospitallier and Teutonic.

Notable Figures:
-Charlemagne
-Pope Urban II
-Hugh De Payen

Thank you

That is a very important one, many people only seem to remember Neil Armstrong.

Those are some great ones!
Can't believe I forgot Guy Fawkes >.<
However I should mention that Robert Catesby should be mentioned as he was the leader of the conspirators of the Gunpowder Plot.
