Sir Walter Raleigh (1554-1618) was one seXXXy knight. Labelled as an English aristocrat, writer, poet, soldier, courtier, and SPY - you could say that SWR did it all. He is most famous for establishing the first settlement in North America, AKA Roanoke Island.
Oh, and did we mention that Sir Walter Raleigh was such a badass that he was executed under King James I’s orders? As he lay waiting for the axe to fall his last words were, “I would not have my enemies think I quaked from fear. Strike, man, strike!” Meooow!
