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 Atilla the Hun

He can smash and can kill Alexander, as we can see the episode in the deadliest warrior,
He was one of the legendary tribal warrior but brutal

3 Cuauhtémoc
4 Spartacus Spartacus Spartacus was a Thracian gladiator who, along with the Gauls Crixus, Oenomaus, Castus and Gannicus, was one of the escaped slave leaders in the Third Servile War, a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic.
5 Julius Ceasar
6 Geronimo Geronimo Geronimo was a prominent leader and medicine man from the Bedonkohe band of the Apache tribe. From 1850 to 1886 Geronimo joined with members of three other Chiricahua Apache bands.
7 Al Capone

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!

Capone was a businessman He was ruthless and mastered driveby shooting Prohibition style. His empire grossed $100 million by the time he was in his 20s. Alexander the Not-So-Great wouldn't have been able to conquer Chicago yet Al Capone did.
