    Your country's national heroes?

    Please, tell me about the national heroes highly respected in your country. Or maybe you can tell about somebody who is not so famous, but still deserving to be called a national hero?

    More heroes & heroines are completely unknown rather than known. How many names of female heroic figures do we know about compared to male ones? Disciples of Jesus? Philosophers? Emperors? Military leaders? Does this mean that such unknown heroines did not exist?

    When I was educated (in Australia), all the early English-Australian figureheads were depicted to be as lofty as Saints. Most people now realise that many of them weren't so likeable perhaps. There would be many great Australian heroes who were/are Aboriginal whom wouldn't get a mention in English.

    I am, nonetheless, a proud Australian.

    Surely I mean Napoleon
    Napoléon brought your past back, you didn't even know Egyptians had a glorious past before he came with his army. You at least own him that (or, to be precise, the scientifics he brought with him).

    By the way, the campaign in Egypt wasn't due to Napoléon but to the Republic (precisely, the Directoire), he has got the power later. But I forgot that Egyptians don't exist anymore, since they had been replaced with Arabs, far less criminal for sure

    Ps : And of course Napoléon is a hero for France, he has saved the Revolution there.
