Literally who?

I'd say even more literally who but I actually know about him, and he's kind of boring

Nader Shah Ashfar Khan, probably one of the most successful (as in practically flawless) military commanders and ruler of all time.

Hannibal is long due his own fucking movie.

>>538594
No he isn't

Also people don't like tragedies so it won't happen.

There's plenty of people who lost that have movies.

Napoops, Spartacus, all those cunts.
>>
>>538588
Sure thing, guy.

>>538594
It will never happen because of people bitching about the ethnicity of whatever actors they cast.

>>538604
>people don't like tragedies

yeah, that's why Shakespeare was such an under-appreciated playwright, right?

Nigger, he restored Persia's old borders and without him there wouldn't be a Persia anymore.

Also, the entire West has been buttmad since 1979 that they can't get Persian oil. Also, Iran is engaged in a proxy war against the West and Saudi Arabia. I'd say they're pretty fucking relevant.

desu I'd say Napoleon could be considered a victory since even though he died on a shitty isle in the middle of nowhere he radically and permanently changed the European power structure and system

Wouldn't Alexandre Dumas have a better history?
He was poor but smart, suffered racism.
His father was a huge war hero, but that he hardly knew.
Then, there is the history of his mother, that had to raise him alone.
Eventually became one of the greatest French writers ever.

This is pretty much the recipe of "Oscar Winning movie".
