History is a very important fact and information in today's world because it allows us to see the world and hear amazing stories that we will most likely never have the opportunity to experience or even see.

Today, however, we'll go down memory lane and educate you on heroes you've probably never heard of: we'll look at the ten greatest warriors to have ever walked the earth.

A Warrior

A warrior simply refers to a brave or experienced solider or fights with special people with amazing skills.

Now, I'm sure the world has had over a hundred or even more warriors, but these warriors had special skills or talents that likely set them apart from every other warrior.


1. Spartacus

Spartacus was the Greek name given to a Greco-Thracian gladiator who happened to be among the slaves who escaped from some slave trade leaders in the Third Servile War. Spartacus, after his escape, led a revolt against the Roman Republic in the first century BC after he was left and deserted by them after fighting in their army as a slave.

He was said to have fought fearlessly and won all of the battles he fought without fear during his lifetime. His story was so popular that a movie was made based on this true story.

2. Sun Tzu

Sun Tzu, who lived during the Eastern period of the Ancient Chinese, was a Chinese general, military strategist, writer, and philosopher before his death.Sun Tzu was a warrior who understood war far better than his rivals.

According to legend, Sun Tzu never lost a battle and, even when he did, the number of his men who died was not more than a handful, as he was an expert at winning wars.

3. Richard I of Normandy.

Richard was a famous English king who also ruled as the Duke of Normandy. He was born in August 932 and died on November 20th, 996.

King Richard, popularly referred to as the Lionheart, was recognised by many for his battle against Saladin during the Crusade and his revolt against his father. Richard was also famous for being an undefeatable warrior and military leader, putting down rebels at the very young age of 16.
