Here's the next part of the 100 most influential rankings. 


- Please keep discussion on topic. 

- No trolling. 

- No complaining, although constructive criticism is okay. 

- No personal attacks.

- No commenting without voting. 

Mahavira Founder of Jainism, a major religion in India, which exists in much smaller numbers worldwide.
Mani Founder of Manichaeism, a former major religion, that has influenced the social disposition towards dualities, Us vs. Them, Good vs. Evil, Light vs. Dark., etc. Influenced other religions.
Mansa Musa Emperor of Mali, then arguably the most power African nation. Established Timbuktu as a major Islamic culture center. Both he and Timbuktu are associated with African wealth of the Middle Ages. His wealth is impossible to estimate accurately, but he was wealthy enough to deflate gold in Africa on his own. One study suggests he would be worth $400 Billion by today's standards, although it could be more or less.
Mao Zedong Founding father of the People’s Republic of China, the most populated Communist government in history. He laid the foundations for China as a world power through reform policies. His form of communism, known as Maoism, is often an example to misrepresent Socialism.
Marco Polo First European to detail a chronicle of his travels to Central Asia and East Asia; inspired worldwide exploration and cartography
Marcus Brutus Led the Assassinated Julius Caesar, which was a leading factor in causing the collapse of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire.
Margaret Sanger Arguably the most crucial figure in the abortion debate; Opened the first birth control clinics that would become Planned Parenthood; popularized "Birth Control"
Marie Curie Pioneering scientist for radioactivity; while she didn't discover it, she is probably the most influential early scientist working with it. Coined the term "radioactivity;" first woman to win Nobel Prize, which she would win twice in her life.
Marilyn Monroe Arguably the most famous sex symbol of all time, leaving a legacy as a major pop icon decades after her death.
Mark Sykes & Francois Picot Drew up the post-World War I Middle East partition agreement that is arguably the leading inaugural cause of all political instability and war in the Middle East in the last 100 years.
