Okay. I have got this.
The most important Poles in the world in my opinion:
1. Jan III Sobieski (thankfully, he stopped the spreading of Ottoman Empire)
2. Mikołaj Kopernik (heliocentrism)
3. Jan Paweł II (one of the best popes ever)
4. Adam Mickiewicz (he is considered one of the best European poets, our "Slavic bard")
5. Maria Skłodowska-Curie (radioactivity researcher, first women to win Nobel Prize)
6. Fryderyk Chopin (one of the best composers in the world)
7. Lech Wałęsa (he's very controversial for us, nonetheless he's known and important in the world)
8. Józef Piłsudski (Battle of Warsaw)
9. Jan Heweliusz (astronomy,
the founder of lunar topography)
10. Kazimierz Funk (concept of vitamins)
List of Polish people important for our country:
1. Jan III Sobieski
2. Józef Piłsudski
3. Stefan Batory (creator of husaria, defeated Ivan the Terrible)
4. Adam Mickiewicz
5. Tadeusz Kościuszko (national hero, led Kościuszko Uprising)
6. Fryderyk Chopin
7. Mieszko I (creator of the Polish state)
8. Jan Paweł II
9. Kazimierz Wielki (found Poland built in wood and left in built in stone)
10. Władysław Jagiełło (Battle of Grunwald)
The order doesn't matter. It's extremely difficult to choose only a few people when we have so many...
i would start to give short biographies about some persons for whom i am sure (100% sure) that deserve to be among 100 most important Slavs ever.
Thanks for this! I will gladly read.
