Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn (1918 – 2008) was a Russian novelist, historian, and critic of Soviet totalitarianism.
During the war Solzhenitsyn served as the commander of a sound-ranging battery in the Red Army, was involved in major action at the front, and twice decorated. In February 1945, while serving in East Prussia, Solzhenitsyn was arrested for writing derogatory comments in private letters to a friend about the conduct of the war by Joseph Stalin. He was accused of anti-Soviet propaganda under Article 58 paragraph 10 of the Soviet criminal code, and of “founding a hostile organization” under paragraph 11. Solzhenitsyn was taken to the Lubyanka prison in Moscow, where he was interrogated. On 7 July 1945, he was sentenced in his absence by Special Council of the NKVD to an eight-year term in a labour camp.
He helped to raise global awareness of the gulag and the Soviet Union’s forced labour camp system. While his writings were often suppressed, he wrote many books, most notably The Gulag Archipelago, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, Two Hundred Years Together and Cancer Ward. Solzhenitsyn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970, “for the ethical force with which he has pursued the indispensable traditions of Russian literature”. He was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1974 but returned to Russia in 1994 after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

Bogusław Radziwiłł (1620 – 1669) was a princely magnate and a member of the Polish-Lithuanian szlachta, or nobility. He was of the Radziwiłł magnate family. By birth he was an Imperial Prince of the Holy Roman Empire. A descendant of the famous knight Zawisza Czarny.
Together with his cousin Janusz Radziwiłł in 1654 during The Deluge, or Swedish invasion of Poland, Bogusław Radziwiłł began negotiations with King Charles X Gustav of Sweden aimed at breaking the Commonwealth and the Polish–Lithuanian union. They signed a treaty according to which the Swedish–Lithuanian union was founded and the Radziwiłłs were to rule over two duchies carved up from the lands of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (this was also confirmed in another treaty, the treaty of Radnot).
In Poland it is believed that Bogusław’s and Janusz’s only lasting achievement was to tarnish the Radziwiłł family name for years to come with their treason, eclipsing the deeds of other Radziwiłłs like Michał Kazimierz Radziwiłł, who fought for the Crown and the Commonwealth against the Swedes. Bogusław is the archvillain in a novel by Henryk Sienkiewicz, The Deluge, which is mandatory school reading in Poland, and is also the basis for a very popular eponymous film.

This is Hermes Pan, best-known as Fred Astaire’s co-choreographer, and also a major babe. He was born in 1910 in Tennessee, although his family was, quite obviously, Greek. (So this means he had all the Greek-god looks with a Southern accent, quite a strange combination, but delicious nonetheless.) He was very interested in dancing from an early age, and his family moved to New York soon afterwards, because they had basically no money. When he grew up, they moved out West, and he became an assistant choreographer in Hollywood. He met Fred on the set of Flying Down to Rio, the first Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers movie, and they became the best of friends.
Did I mention that Hermes won an Oscar in 1937? Heck yeah! And here he is on the set of Top Hat, showing off his moves and impressing the girls. (The girls are all me in a previous life, probably.) Just look at that clothing style - polo shirt with a necktie and those pants! And that smile! Hermes choreographed a lot of dances for Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth, and he danced with them both on film sometimes, too. (I love it when he dances because his hair gets all mussed up and in his face and ugh my heart. <3)
I love his tendency to wear hats and short-sleeved shirts, and chew gum while tap-dancing. He’s incredibly cute and I love him so much, I would’ve married him if I had been born earlier. :) (He died in 1990, about 9 years before I was born. Oh, well.)

Frederic Chopin! (1810-1849)He is one of the most well known pianists of the romantic era and he is just absolutely adorable!! His music is just heart-wrenching. If you do not cry while listening to Chopin, you have no soul. :)

"King" Christina of Sweden.
This bitch is bad-fucking-ass; at only the age of SIX she succeeded her father on the throne of Sweden. When she was born she was mistaken for a boy, she spoke in a &#8220;strong, hoarse voice&#8221; and dressed masculine. She was raised as a male, essentially, and was one of the only females of the time to be educated as if she were a man. She was one of the first Swedish to convert to Roman Catholicism in 1654, which lead to her abdicate her throne. She spent her later years in Rome, protecting artists and projects. She is one of the very few woman to be buried in the Vatican grotto.

Frank O&#8217;Hara is one of the dynamic leader of the New York Society of Poets but his poems ring of a vibrancy of the present. &#8220;Life perpetuated in parti-colored loves and beautiful lies all in different languages,&#8221; his poem speaks to us directly across the aisle of a New York subway.  Born in 1926, he tragically died when he was run over on the beach by a dune buggy in 1966 rupturing his liver and dying the next day.
