Queen Isabella I Unified Spain through marriage and Reconquista; financed Christopher Columbus's 1492 voyage, which led to the colonization of the New World and to the establishment of Spain as a major power.
Queen Victoria Popular monarch who presided during her namesake age--The Victorian Age, possibly the most influential era since the Renaissance or since Antiquity; Called the "Grandmother of Europe" since a large portion of later monarchs are directly related to her.
Rachel Carson Arguably the leading figure in advancing the global environmental movement
Ralph Waldo Emerson Leading American proponent of declaring America's "Intellectual Declaration of Independence" from European intellectual influences; "The Sage of America"
Ramses II Presided at the height of Egyptian, arguably creating the mystique and legacy of Ancient Egypt
Raphael Renaissance master artist who captured the neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur
Rene Descartes Father of Modern Western Philosophy and the father of analytical geometry. His contributions to critical thinking have made all universities, more or less, Cartesian institutions.
Richard I Iconic historical figure as a pious warrior. Possibly the most famous participant in the Crusades
Richard Nixon First president to resign from office; opened relations with China which opened up their economy; moved the US from the Gold Standard to fiat currency; established the Environmental Protection Agency
Richard Wagner Revolutionized opera into a total work of art using poetry, visual arts, music, and dramatic art.
