Noone has probably ever heard of this character/person but I'd be Brian Boru (yes it's a guy). He's the main character in a book called "The Lion the ireland" by Morgan Llywelyn about Ireland's ancient high king. The author portrayed him with such strength of character that I'd love to be as strong as he was. and it's a great book. It made me want to visit Ireland.
