Maybe it's because of our English arrogance, but we tend to think that we have produced more great or famous people than any other nation. Maybe we have, maybe we haven't. But how many famous Dutchmen can you name? What about Belgians? Portuguese or Hungarian? Well, maybe they aren't too clued up on anyone from our country either. But the fact remains, how many times have you been in some far flung corner of the globe when some recently discovered tribe member realises you're from England and comes out with that old chestnut "Ingleeesh! Aaahhh, Babbi Chal-tin" (for people with an IQ below 5, the answer is below).
So, we've put together a small list of the good and the great (more are being added all the time). Some you will know others you may not. These are people who have helped spread our influence, culture and status. These are people who have changed the course of history - people who have left there mark in England, if not the world. Learn their names and remember that they represent all that is best in our great nation and that part of each of them still exists today in every Englishman.
