Historical Figures You Didn't Know Were SUPER-ATTRACTIVE

A fellow seeker of happiness (and dear friend), Liz, recently posted about historical figures she discovered were... well... dream boats. She kindly agreed to share her post here and I dare you to not swoon. 

For more funny, thoughtful, and poignant posts from Liz, follow her here. 

So some of these people weren't the nicest people in the world, and some of them even did some really bad stuff. But we're not talking about that. Just how attractive they were.

(Which some may argue is objectifying people, but here's my defense: I'm not blogging about them as objects. I'm blogging about them like, "Hey, here's an additional piece of information about this person you can add to your repertoire of knowledge about them." Objectification seems to be when you ignore the whole person and make them a thing to be acted upon. My intention is to add an extra dimension to their personhood.)

Plus, it's fun.

Got almost a Clint Eastwood thing going on here.
