The Greatest Historical Warriors

The Top Ten

1 Alexander the Great Alexander the Great Alexander III of Macedon, commonly known as Alexander the Great, was a King of the Ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and a member of the Argead dynasty.

As Hannibal basically said up about him - "He defeated armies whose numbers vastly outnumbered his." Julius Caesar fell cried at a statue of Alexander's in Spain. The best considered him the best.

such a great king from the past... and hey he gots my name... Smooth Criminal the great lol - SmoothCriminal

Its truely unfortunate when some one believes that Al Capone is a Historical warrior, he's no warrior he's a thug. Alexander wasn't just "Great" he was a true warrior and King. Yasou Palikare.

2 Al Capone Al Capone Alphonse Gabriel Capone, sometimes known by the nickname "Scarface", was an American gangster and businessman who attained notoriety during the Prohibition era as the co-founder and boss of the Chicago Outfit.

If you tried to get Capone arrested by the police, it wouldn't work simply because anyone who could potentially put Capone in jail, were bought off by him.

If you were lucky enough to work for Al Capone, you were paid handsomely. However you had to be tough. Any proof that you were disloyal, he'd disfigure you.

Al Capone was responsible for the St. Valentines' Day Massacre in the Prohibition era. Of course he's the greatest warrior who ever lived!

Bootlegger, gangster, mob boss, and he was untouchable since he bought off the police, judge and jury.

3 Jesse James Jesse James

The first ever daytime robbery was done by Jesse James and his crew. $60,000 robbery in broad daylight was unheard of prior to Jesse James.

All round badass! Gurella fighter, bank robber, and he led his gang to victory.

Jesse James would easily defeat Ceasar. All Jesse needs to do is quickdraw his Colt Revolver, and shoot acurrately.
