I wonder what Honest Abe is keeping under that hat
It’s totally natural to get a little bit flustered when you see someone attractive, even when those people exist nowhere but the pages of a textbook or on celluloid. We dream about what would happen if they could just come back to life, or decrease in age by a few decades, and they just happen to be mutually attracted to us. Would sparks fly? Would they be crazy in bed? Only your imagination can tell. Who’s your historical crush?
Ching Shih. Pirate queen with over 300 ships and 40,000 followers. Started as a prostitute and then a slave, married up, wound up ruling the China Sea after her husband died. I can’t imagine there being any skills she lacked. (HatlyHats)
The Empress Theodora, the all-powerful wife of the Emperor Justinian. Before ascending to the purple, many accounts say that she was previously a whore in a circus. There were delicious anecdotes about her in The Secret History of Procopius. I wanna see if she’s really the she-devil they said she was. (LasaroM)
Helen of Troy
Helen of Troy. (professorbrainiac)
Man, the original face that launched a thousand ships, the true cause of the Trojan War in which even the Olympian gods and goddesses took sides and battled. One hopes that such a monstrous beauty would be matched by her prowess in bed. (LasaroM)
