Here’s What These 5 Historical Figures Would Look Like Today
Almost everyone must have stopped at some point to think about what their favorite historical figures would look like in the present times. Well, our imagination does not need to go too far.
Thanks to a CGI artist and modern-day Photoshop skills, we can envision the following five historical figures in the modern day.
Queen Nefertiti’s name and the tale of her beauty have come up in many songs and movies, both old and new. It leaves us wondering what she would have been like today.
In Egyptian history, Nefertiti was portrayed as a very powerful queen compared to others. We got to know about her when her tomb was discovered, even though she was buried upside down. CT scans, however, showed that she had a beautiful face with few wrinkles even after birthing and raising six children.
Alexander the Great
Also known as Alexander III of Macedon, he was a king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon. Alexander was a brilliant military leader who conquered the eastern Mediterranean, Egypt, the Middle East, and parts of Asia in an extraordinarily short time.
He was known to have eyes that each had a different color. He also had golden curly hair and a light skin tone.
Cleopatra was the Queen of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, and the last active ruler of the dynasty.
She is another queen whose name has been featured in many movies, and many have wondered what she really looked like. Historians suggest she was a very beautiful young woman, and M.A. Ludwig’s artistic recreation backs that claim.
Napoleon Bonaparte is well known as one of the most famous leaders in history. He became prominent as a military leader during the French Revolution.
As one of the most successful generals of the French Revolutionary armies, his leadership turned into a 10-year reign as the Emperor of France. However, Napoleon was later defeated and banished.
The woman in the portrait painted by Leonardo Da Vinci is known as Lisa Gherardini. She later married a Florentine merchant named Francesco del Giocondo. Although she is not of royal blood, her name has lasted on the lips of the public for many centuries.
The painting with her face and smile is one of the most famous faces around the globe. Almost everyone must have wondered at some point what she would look like today.
