Franz Liszt (1811-1886) 
A Hungarian composer and virtuoso pianist, also - a teacher. Apart from his great talent, good works (which you should all listen to) and the novatory way of playing piano (changing the popular, old pieces a bit while playing… basically covering songs while playing them, kinda ‘jazzing’) he was well known for many (like many many many) romances. Women would visit him to learn how to play a piano, then leave pregnant and ready to divorce.
Because of how crazy his fans could become, a new medical term was created - ‘Lisztomania’. 
But look at his face… How not to get lisztomaniac, while being in contact with such a flirty and attractive man?

Emily Hobhouse (1860-1926) was a Cornish campaigner and activist, most famous for bringing the appalling conditions of the British concentration camps to the attention of the British public during the 2nd Boer War. She also worked to improve the conditions and save the live of the people there, although under much criticism from those back in England. Seen as a heroine in South Africa but known by the British government as ‘That Bloody Woman’, she had a commanding yet compassionate gaze which has won my heart.

Gaius Marius, a famous Roman general. I’m not really sure if this counts, considering this painting was created almost a millenium after his death, but artist John Vanderlyn certainly had a nice imagination.

Jean Toomer, pictured here, was an American poet and novelist and an important figure both in the Harlem Renaissance and the modernism movement of the Lost Generation. His first book Cane, published in 1923, is a synthesis of the ideas and experimentation seen in both the Harlem Renaissance and modernism and is considered by many to be his most significant writing.
He was also a total hottie.
This is a photograph of him when he was quite young.  He also grew a mustache later in life, if that’s your jam.
