Who is ur favorite hero?Please write him or her presentation.
Mine is Kur Sad, who was a Tekin(means prince) at ancient Turkish world. When he was imprisoned with his 40 comrades, he revolted and captured king of China with only his 40 men. But he had been captured and killed by guards. He died with glory, and his revolotion's story is told grandfather to grandson, so came till this time. His revolotion occured at app.200 B.C., when the nomadic Turkish people was living near China...

too difficult to pick out t most deserving - here are some good quotes from ' Subject Index ' :

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.
Sir Winston Churchill

History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon. -- Napoleon Bonaparte

Indeed, history is nothing more than a tableau of crimes and misfortunes.
Voltaire (1694 - 1778)

That is an intresting question, though it is hard to pick out just one hero from history to name as faveorite espcially sense what one might consider a hero others may not, and there are a couple of ways hero could be defined here.

One hero I have always admired is Boudica, the Celtic Queen who led an army into war against the Roman invasion

All History is tragic, as well as ironic,and great meen even though we know they are not good men, may be deserving of compassion-Lewis J. Halle

If we're talking about general heros, i think i'd have to go with Nero. you can't argue with a crazy emporer.

If you want an contriversial choice I would pick Vlad the Imapler of whom it is said the legend of Dracula comes from. There is still a divide today between people that think he is a hero, or a villan.

and here is the source of my nick, Tonyukuk:
...Bilge and his brother, Kül Tigin, army commander in chief, overthrow the weak Bögü. The two are later credited with starting the process of civilization amongst the Turks. Unfortunately, no city survives intact to the modern day. However, Bilge orders for his brother, himself and their wise chamberlain, TONYUKUK, monumental tombstones with so-called Runic (so called because of the resemblance - it's a phonetic Turkic alphabet) scripture, carved in Turkish and Chinese. These tell not only of Turkic history and warfare but also of the social structure, and maybe an early state philosophy. Kül Tigin dies in 731...
Tonyukuk is the one of my favorite heroes...

Julius Ceaser is another good one. People could view him and what he has done and accomplished in two different lights. Even I have somewhat mixed feelings about him. He was a great man, wheather for good or ill.

How about Fidel Castro? I'm sure that to the people of his country he is a hero.
