In 1842-43, Augusta Ada King (born Byron), Countess of Lovelace wrote a method for calculating a sequence of Bernoulli numbers for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine. This method is recognised as the world’s first computer program, and so she is considered to be the “first computer programmer”. She also foresaw the capability for computers to go beyond calculations and number crunching, and holds the world record score for Breakout.
Boudica, Queen of the Eastern English Iceni tribe in the 1st century AD, was the leader of a revolt against the Romans. Although this rebellion was successful initially, and the British Roman capital was destroyed, Boudica eventually fell to the Romans in 62 AD. She is considered to be a heroine who died defending the liberty of her country. Freeeeeeedoommm!! oh wait, wrong person.
This guy we picked up in medieval Mongolia, in the year 1269. Please welcome, the very excellent barbarian – Mister Genghis Khan! This is a dude, who 700 years ago totally ravaged China, and who were told, two hours ago, totally ravished Oshmans’ Sporting Goods!
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is widely considered to be the most significant and influential composer of the Classical era. The musical prodigy began composing in 1757 at the age of 5 and wrote his first symphony just 3 years later. Inspired by the music around him, he went on to create some of the most popular and outstanding masterpieces in classical music, including the popular 80s song – Rock me Amadeus.
