210 Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, more commonly Leonardo da Vinci or simply Leonardo, was an Italian polymath whose areas of interest included invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, poetry, more.

Leonardo had thought of things that were way beyond his own time! He made many amazing works, although some met an unfortunate fate. Leonardo was truly deserving of the "Renaissance Man" title.

I voted for Jesus Christ but this guy should still be in the top 10 he is a genius - louiethefly

He was an artist, an inventor, a scientist and an architect. So many conflicting roles, yet he pulled them all off effortlessly ~

He should at least enter top 5.
He's the most talented person I know of.

211 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.

Conquered the known world in a couple years... spread hellenistic thought throughout the East. Even centuries later when Rome was at its height and the capital of the world, Greek was still the lingua franca of the aristocracy.

He should be #1 without alex nothing of the above happens jesus doesn't happen hitler the pope darwin none alexander took a barbaric world and made it civil. Bar none Alexander is the most influential of all time

this is the best 1 do I have to explain the pure greatness?

212 John Lennon John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

In his phenomenal song "Imagine" John Lennon has some deep words to mankind - MatrixGuy

Even in his looks and his voice, very handsome, and very inspirational too. That's why many girls liked him and said he is very sexy. JOHN LENNON became the most influential person not only in his talents but also in his PEACEFUL ACTIVITIES. Sadly, he just lived 40 years in the world, my true and everlasting IDOL.

Had the greatest contribution to overall humanity of any other musician

Shared the most important message of all time. All you need is love.

Because its shapes a child imagination from a young age the characters are perfect

Influental on the child in all of us.

215 Osama Bin Laden Osama Bin Laden Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden was the founder of al-Qaeda, the organization that claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks on the United States, along with numerous other mass-casualty attacks against civilian and military targets worldwide.

This is insulting, glad that you're last bin laden

Where the hell is mansa musa King abdullah chancellor of Germany George bush where are they all of them

He has been the world's most wanted, after the fall of the twin towers, although he was later killed, however, some people still believe he is still alive and hence he still remains the world most influential person

216 J.K. Rowling J.K. Rowling

From being nothing to being everything that she could. Truly inpirational

She changed my perspective in life more ways than one through 7 books

217 Genghis Khan Genghis Khan Genghis Khan c. 1162 – August 18 1227, born Temüjin, was the founder and Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his death.

Way to far down the list. One of the most successful and powerful people of all time.

His armies were responsible for the deaths of upwards of 40 million people (<10% of the worlds population at the time, or 700,000,000 people in today's numbers), both by the sword and the bubonic plague (black death) that he brought along.

He founded the second largest empire of all time (after England and not by much, which had the advantage of boats and continents such as North America (Canada) and Australia)

Both Hitler and Napoleon are said to have modeled themselves somewhat after him.

Largest empire in the world, had a influence on most of Asia therefore without him, world history would be drastically different.. Although not above people like hitler and Muhammad, he definitely deserves top 10

He created the second biggest empire of all time, allowing for the spread of silk, gun powder, paper, printing, musical instruments, all are aspects of the renaissance. Also the first postal system, culture of meritocracy, and tolerance toward other customs and cultures.

Without him, Europeans would have probably stayed on their own little continent and would have never come to America. There are more influential people, but he was so low down that I had to boost him up. - gamingfoeealzs
