The 30 most influential persons of the last 1,000 years according to
a list compiled by the History Channel and aired by AE TV. All persons are depicted in the
General Lifelines of HyperHistory except Pasteur and Ford
who are shown in the Special Lifeline for 'Science'.
Such a list is bound to be controversial because it is impossible to objectively judge what is more important: the music of Mozart or the science of Newton ? The final ranking is really less important than the stimulation of a lively debate.
29 Henry Ford S
28 J. S. Bach
25 James Watt
24 St. Thomas
22 Genghis Khan
20 Adam Smith
