Cyrus the Great. He was the first leader of the Achaemenid Persian Empire, known for creating the largest empire the world had ever seen at the time. Generally a great guy too, he allowed freedom of religion and is the only non-jew to have been declared a Messiah.

China’s Four Most Handsome Men and Four Great Beauties
China’s Four Most Handsome Men and The Four Beauties of China.
Looks can kill, literally. One of them was deemed too handsome, which ultimately resulted in him being “watched to death”. Numerous idioms and proverbs arise from the descriptions of the looks of these people, most of which are used to metaphorically compliment someone’s appearances. It was also said that the looks of the Four Beauties are enough to entrance fishes into forgetting how to swim and thus sink, eclipse the moon, entice birds into falling and even put blooming flowers to shame.
“Three of the Four Beauties brought kingdoms to their knees and their lives ended in tragedy.”
Well f*ck. (SoGodDangTired)
