Top 10 Most Influential Persons Who Never Existed

There are many people and things that have had a great influence on man but this time on this list we will show you the top 10 Influential People Who Never Lived.



 

10. Barbie

Barbie has depicted almost every possible female lifestyle choice and there can be no doubt that she has been at the start of the path many women have taken in life.

 

9. Rosie the Riveter

Rosie the Riveter may not be a familiar name, but her picture certainly is.

Rosie told women that they can do anything and she managed to motivate an entire generation of working-age women to get out of the home.



 

8. King Arthur

King Arthur was a legendary British leader who, according to medieval histories and romances, led the defense of Britain against Saxon invaders in the late 5th and early 6th centuries.

 

7. Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes a novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Holmes is fiction character who never existed but left his impression on millions of people all around the world.

 

6. Cowboys

The influence of the Cowboy movie genre is indisputable an immense one. and for those who say “but cowboys are real!” – yes – but this is about the concept – not about a specific person – just as we might say Santa existed as St Nicholas, the concept is bigger than any one person.

 

5. Robin Hood

Robin Hood is a heroic outlaw in English folklore, he was a highly skilled archer and swordsman.

There is a debate about whether Hood existed or not, but I am of the opinion that he did not.

To this day, we are all raised believing Robin Hood was a hero.

 

4. Santa Claus

Almost all western children were told by their parents that Santa would leave them nothing if they misbehaved.

If you ask most people in Western culture what they think of when they think of Christmas, Santa Claus is one of the first things they might say.

 

3. Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet were not the first tragic pair, but they were the ones that caught the imagination of generations to follow.

I think Romeo and Juliet are the one to blame for much of our ideas of the “perfect relationship”.

 

2. Big Brother

Big Brother has been a influence in so many social protests. His name comes up every time a government passes a restrictive law or a law which seems to remove aspects of our eternal freedoms.

Big Brother was created by George Orwell for his novel Nineteen Eighty-Four

 

1. The Marlboro Man

Before the Marlboro Man campaign began, “real men” didn’t smoke cigarettes with filters – they were for women. This iconic figure used in advertising for 45 years and it’s perhaps the biggest breakthrough advertising ever had.

The campaign is considered to be one of the best in all history
