He brought an umbrella as a weapon to the beaches of Normandy and later fought a tank brigade with it. Or Diogenes if you want to look at the classics. Guy lived in a barrel and literally crapped wherever he pleased… even on Plato’s stool. Or Tarrare who was basically a living avatar of the sin of gluttony. Log in to Reply Michael Malloy.

Log in to Reply I guess Nikola Tesla was quite a character. I’m sure there were also some kings and dukes that were pretty strange. But this is a difficult question to answer for me because it’s not something Historians actually talk or write about. It’s something that history buffs (i.e. laypeople) love to read about but in the academic field of History, we don’t really concern ourselves with individuals because that’s a very outdated way of doing History and for the most part, it doesn’t really get you anywhere.
