Don't all such rankings depend on the point of view of the rank(l)er?



Could shuffle the whole list many times with justification.

William T.G. Morton and James Clerk Maxwell are surelly too high.Oh,and I like that this guy did not made a mistake in ranking Julius Caesar above August.I also like that Cyrus the Great has been included,even though he is too low,IMO.
