Charles II of England has been submitted before, but I don’t recall seeing many (if any) reasons why. And seriously, there are a lot of reasons why he’s a history crush.
Number one: just look at the guy. Six foot two, big brown eyes, great legs, and that epic rockstar hairdo- which, by the way, isn’t the wig he was famous for later. Nope, that is his own hair.
Besides that, he was intelligent , funny, approachable and openly affectionate with his loved ones. He was also kind of a badass- in 1651, he spent several weeks on the run after losing a battle to Oliver Cromwell and spent the whole time in disguise, often trolling people by talking about ‘that rogue Charles Stuart’. And when the Great Fire of London broke out in 1666 he helped to put out the flames, working alongside his subjects.
Of course, what Charlie is most famous for is women. He had more than a dozen mistresses that we know about over the course of his adult life, with at least that many illegitimate children, and he also seemed to be pretty keen on his wife. But his love life was commented on not so much because of the number of women, but the way he treated them- to Charles, women were people to be valued for their brains and personality as well as their bodies, a view that was pretty unusual at the time.
Oh, and he played a ton of sports, rode a horse well enough to win professional races, wrote (awful) poetry, sailed, had a personal science lab and invented the fashion that would later become the three-piece suit just to annoy the French.
