Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab Founder of Wahhabism, which inspired the ideology of numerous terrorist cells, including Al Qaeda and ISIS.
Mullah Abdul Ghani The primary influence that saw the Taliban regain Afghanistan, ushering an end of US involvement in Centra Asia after 20 years.
Murasaki Shikibu Wrote the world's first novel
Napoleon Bonaparte Most studied military figure in human history; directly involved in the destruction of the Holy Roman Empire, the expedition that discovered the Rosetta Stone, creation of the Napoleonic Code, the Louisiana Purchase, and more; Inspired European nationalism which would later see the unification of Germany and Italy; Inspired the concept of the Great Man theory; nearly conquered continental Europe; his defeat led to the Concert of Europe/Balance of Power, a long period of relative peace.
Narendra Modi For potentially converting India into the next superpower, but also by converting the world's largest Democracy into a more authoritarian nation.
Nathuram Godse Assassinated Gandhi, depriving India of arguably their most charismatic leaders
Neil Armstrong First human to land on a celestial body outside of Earth--the Moon
Nelson Mandela The most famous anti-Apartheid leader; South Africa's first elected black head of state.
Niccolo Machiavelli "Father of Modern Political Science" for his political theories; argued that political leaders can brush aside morality and use deception, treachery, violence, etc., if the intention and result is beneficial for the country; Argued it is better for a leader be feared than loved, if you cannot be both; his surname has come to mean deviousness or deceit.
Nicephore Niepce Inventor of photography; created a camera that took an image of the first real-world scene
