Unknown Egyptian inventor of the nail Little has changed in this ancient invention, which is still used widely today.
Unknown Middle Eastern inventor of the plow First to use draft animals in combination with agriculture instructions, primarily a hoe, for efficient agricultural work.
Unknown Egyptian inventor of the sailboat Boats without sails are probably prehistoric, but the introduction of the sail made navigating the Nile and elsewhere much easier.

Unknown Sumerian inventor of the wheel The first person to insert rotating axles into round discs for the purposes of transport and/or agriculture (milling, etc.)
Vallabhbhai Patel Unified post-British India, which would become the world's largest democracy
Vasco da Gama First European to arrive to India by sea; laying the foundations for a wide exchange of exotic goods and for the foundation of European colonization in India and elsewhere.
Victor Hugo Arguably the most influential novelist and poet in the French language. Many of his works are still adapted to films today.
Vigdis Finnbogadottir First democratically directly elected female president in world history.
Vincent Van Gogh Arguably the most well-known contributor to the foundations of Modern Art; His work is routinely the most expensive sold worldwide.
