Let's face it, we've had a very, very long history. And over that time, there have been more than a few people who have stuck out over the years. So naturally, we decided to write a quiz about them. Do you think you've got what it takes to recognize the people in our questions and tell us where they come from? Keep reading. 

Like we said, we're going to pull people from all over the world, during different periods in history. They're going to be politicians, criminals, religious figures, inventors and even military leaders. Some of them have been dead for more than 1,000 years, while some are still alive today. Your job is to tell us which part of the world they're from. And don't worry about getting stuck, because we do have some clues to help you out with this somewhat difficult quiz. 

So, are you enough of a history buff to not only identify the people in the pictures but to also tell us which countries they're from? Will songs and stories be written about your legendary memory, or will you be sent back to sixth-grade history class? Take this quiz if you want to find out!
