Do you think any famous historical figure can adapt in the 21 century?

What about Tutankhamun and Neferiti along side him?



They would probably do good as well, it's just that Akhenaten sounds like someone who accepted and embraced change to a larger extent than those that surrounded him, as well as many predecessors and successors of Ancient Egypt. I'm not that keen on the precise details of his rule such as government policies etc., so I may be wrong though, but he seems the most adaptable of the bunch.

Caligula.
Could be fun to see how that insane emperor would fit in a modern society.

This pretty much describes the guy(coppied from wikipedia):

Philo of Alexandria and Seneca the Younger, describe an insane emperor who was self-absorbed, angry, killed on a whim, and who indulged in too much spending and sex. He is accused of sleeping with other men's wives and bragging about it, killing for mere amusement, deliberately wasting money on his bridge, causing starvation, and wanting a statue of himself erected in the Temple of Jerusalem for his worship. Once, at some games at which he was presiding, he ordered his guards to throw an entire section of the crowd into the arena during intermission to be eaten by animals because there were no criminals to be prosecuted and he was bored.
While repeating the earlier stories, the later sources of Suetonius and Cassius Dio provide additional tales of insanity. They accuse Caligula of incest with his sisters, Agrippina the Younger, Drusilla, and Livilla, and say he prostituted them to other men. They state he sent troops on illogical military exercises, turned the palace into a brothel, and, most famously, planned or promised to make his horse, Incitatus, a consul, and actually appointed him a priest.
As you might have read he was truly insane. I think he never would have gained any kind of power and most likely he would have ended up in a psychiatric hospital and never been able to "adapt" himself to society.
As for you question about favourite person, I would say Joseph Stalin. SImply because of what he achieved with the Soviet Union. He turned a rudimentary rural state into a powerful nation in less than 20 years. A direct result of this was the defate of Nazi Germany during WW2.
As for least favourite person, I would say Ivar Åsen. He invented a unified dialect called new norwegian that we are forced to learn even though nearly none speaks it and few writes it.


This modern society can either make or break those two.

Valeria Messalina, a fascinating women. I think she would fit very well in today's society given that women have more sexual freedom and even tho sexual double standard is still a reality.it's not as bad as it once was, in some countries.

No you are wrong..it's a term made up by Rush Limbaugh (no friend of equality). Or it's a term used by insecure men.

Socrates, Tutankhamun, Genghis Khan, and Leonardo Da Vinci are unknown figures to more people than you might realize. In today’s society everyone has great concern over Kim Kardishian, Paris Hilton, Snooki, Pauly D, and other 'celebrities' who are famous for their ludicrous behavior, Caligula and his horse, would be elected to the US Senate, and would be thriving superstars with their own cable TV channel and millions of twitter followers.

Agreed. However, that's not to say that Misandrists who call themselves 'feminists' do not exist.
