Greatest Leaders of All Time

MatrixGuy

The Top TenXW

1Guru Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh; born Gobind Rai, was the 10th Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher.

Sacrificed his whole family to fight against justice. He lend his son's life, mother's life and his own. Today, if there is any reduction in injustice and crime, it's because of him. He was one man military. He said "If you can gain justice with peace, do it. But if you can't, raise your voice and hold the sword."

I've seen many people talking about dirty about Sikhism and swearing to our god. He has told one, there is no heaven and no hell. Whoever dies, he soul will automatically come to god's house. Death is the biggest punishment of all time and visiting god's house is the biggest forgiveness anyone can achieve.

In his name, we all live and achieve the light of love. He drives out all darkness from life and gives eternal happiness. His was the greatest leader of yesterday, still is the greatest leader of today and will be the greatest leader of tomorrow.

An inspiration! Sacrificed himself & his family to save the freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of choosing/practising religion.

He is the only person, in the whole world who fought for injustice, even after so many victories, he never conquered any region of world & sacrificed his whole family & relatives to stop injustice to humanity. He preached love for only one god, which is invisible, everywhere present & said who will worship him (guru gobind Singh ji) will go to hell.
+9He was a great warrior & brought a revolution... He taught mankind that we should fight 4 our rights... He laid his Father's, Mother's & 4 young Sons life 4 fighting against injustice... 4 me he is a true HERO.. Because a true hearted prayer is gone unanswered...

Never even heard of this guy

2Maharana PratapPratap Singh or Pratap Singh was the ruler of Mewar, a region in north-western India in the present day state of Rajasthan.

The only person in the history, who never compromised with his soil's freedom! True Legend!

The great king, but in this list are many of people are equal to God. So therefore, can't compare to him with them. - Jasbirkhalsa

Maharana Pratap is the tallest of all leaders because he was fighting a cause for the general public. If he could have asked for a easy life he would have got it. But he was a selfless leader who knew with whom he was fighting with, he was a warrior of greatest order. Akbar could not win him in his life despite having many times more strength of the army.

Maharana Pratap was that legend who never surrender against any ruler, He is the person who well what the dignity and honour of the person. He never gave up. On his death even his enemy Akbar also started crying, what else can show how great he was who was very loyal and faithful towarad his kingdom and to the people! Jay Rajputana!

Great person

3Guru Nanak

This is the first human being who told us the formation of universe 500 years before ( scientists telling us today but same way as guru nanak)... He told us you r the part of God, we only need a vision to see him. He told us this universe is the body of God.. It is a concious energy compile how it want. He told us everything and everywhere is God. This whole thing is just a play.
( I HATE NOW you GUYS HAVING A RACE TO PROVE WHO IS THE GREATEST LEADER... SHAME ON THAT HUMAN BEING WHO MAKE IT UP)

Guru Nanak Dev ji was like a lighthouse for the world in those dark times... And his teachings are still like a power house for us...

He preached a person is known by qualities & not by number of years he lived, how many people knew him or a king or a great title. He said the main reason of our worries is our ego which controllable by submitting ourselves to HIS COMMAND. No one is good or bad. But power makes him to go beyond his command. In His command there is nothing that is under control of any body.

Guru Nanak Dev Jee is our first guru, we are love him.

The last great constructive genius and nation-builder that the Hindu race has produced… He was truly an original explorer, the maker of a new road in medieval Indian history with no example of guide before him.

Greatest human being who first taught the basics of humanity, highly intellectual personality, prepared the Constitution which even today after 68 years of Independence has not only guided India towards prosperity but also has its relevance in today's scenario. All those countries who have respected end Their constitution have progressed well. He was the great person in India who fights for low caste persons. He tried his best for equality in caste. But some people who didnot want it they oppose and that poison is till now in my country. I think that people in our society show it that there is not any differences about caste in there mind but they setup this thinking in there mind internally. It is shame for those people who r like this. We should look the thinking, hygiene and status of quality and qualification in a person.

Even if you do not share the faith that he is the Savior. He is easily the most influential person in human history. Entire civilizations and ideologies founded upon his teachings. All based on Love.

All of history is based on the belief of a higher being, God. I personally grew up learning about God and his son Jesus. Some may say why does forgiveness have to be proven? Because people can't just believe by their ears. They have to have proof. As a higher being, a part of God, Jesus was sent to earth to show his love for his people. It was proof that he forgave us. I agree. The whole world's history is based on love and creation. It founded many of today's religions, civilizations, and ideologies.

The savior of the whole world. In Him was life, and the life was and is the light of mankind. The one that conquer darkness and death.

Beautiful savior. The god of all mankind.

The Contenders

11Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh

He doesn't proclaim himself as God. He'll be a friend to you in this journey of life. He had dedicated his whole life for the service of humanity. Thousands of followers who are following the oath showed by him are also working towards helping the mankind. There is no such person in today's era who has influenced such a large crowd. And people with a different opinion are requested to not post hurtful comments. We understand it's your choice but we are not here to debate. And as far as I'm concerned he is the greatest leader.

Great man. Always work for humanity, practice 106 human-welfare tasks. Motivates his 5 million volunteers to work on same. Has his name in Guinness Book of World records for largest blood donation, tree plantation etc. and that too multiple times. Not only this, in any natural calamity such as earthquakes etc. ; goes himself and sends his welfare force to help the victims.

Thousands of salute to this Saint.

It sounds rather unbelievable but reality dawns only when one listens to Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan with an open mind. Also when one sees how many fields of human endeavor Guruji has mastered, it becomes clear that the meditation HE teaches is an extremely powerful tool to achieve self confidence. People find it difficult to excel in one chosen vocation. But Guruji has mastered every sphere of positive human  activity with an unbelievable ease and panache. These gifts are not ordinary. Ranging from Music to Engineering, from Sports to Agriculture, from Spiritualism to Science; Getting to know Guruji is a wonderful vista of discovery. The one common underlying message is that if we raise our inner consciousness through true meditation then excellence is just a small step away. The inner reservoir of self confidence needs to be tapped which is possible only through true meditation.

15Abraham LincolnAbraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War - its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

Great man, but lets get this straight, yes he DID end slavery but he had no control over the South (confederate states) and only carve a path for "creative" bigots to exercise their hatred a different way *cough* "JIM CROW" *cough* and even after he ended slavery he did nothing after that thus ignoring the ever-persistent elephant (Racism) getting only bigger. I just wish people would stop viewing him as a the white saver against the oppressed blacks because if you look at it closely all he said was their shall be no slavery "emancipation proclamation" and did nothing in that matter after that. Again great man but to view him as a savior is just wrong. Slavery was going to end eventually and the WHOLE reason why the civil war happened was because you of slavery and if a different president who fought for ending slavery (there's not a lot but there is a few) who would do the same.

He helped to free the slaves. He basically defined freedom. He fought for his principals and ethics, he fought for what he believed in. That is what makes him a great leader.

Smart, tall, brave, and the man who ended slavery he is a great leader but maybe not number one but should be number 5

The man in front of president of US can't be sit

16Julius Caesar

Victorious against the odds in the Gallic wars, becomes the first roman to lead an invasion of Britain, disposed a pharaoh, defeats one of the great military strategists in history to win a civil war and become the most powerful man in the Western world, his assassination by a descendant of one of the founders of the republic leads to the death of the republic, and birth of an empire that has left many present influences on the world especially Europe, there's even a month named after him a man that stands amongst gods, Julius Caesar is Nietzsches uberman.

He is a cool Roman. He should've defeated the conspirators.

50, 000 Romans defeating 200, 000 Gauls? Must I say more? He lead his army from the front wearing a red sash while riding a white horse in every battle and was never defeated. Enough said. Hands down. - themusicking101

17NapoleonNapoléon Bonaparte was a French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the Revolutionary Wars.

His Civil Code was acceleration towards the end of feudalism.

He should be top 1 or 2. Pull a random dude from the streets. 9 times out of 10 they have heard of the name Napoleon. Those other dudes outranking him? Who the hell are they anyway?

He should be number 3 right before Ceasar. He is smart lost lots of battles but did take over. Julius did win every battle but did he take over?. Napoleon was feared by many he is great. He took over Italy how good is that! Of course he is small but fierce he should be number 3.

Here at least a real person, meaning someone who has really existed.

20Nelson MandelaNelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.

Nelson Mandela is the Greatest leader of all time! Forgiving his enemy on release from prison after 27 yrs, encouraging and leading the quest for reconciliation not only in South Africa but all over the world. So it is obvious that it is him that ruled over the greatest empire of all time. He conquered the world without a single shot! Even his enemies bowed to him. His principles cut across all and every kind of boundary.

Great person who lived his life for society...

Nelson Mandela was the great social reformer...

He was actually a terrorist
