there are far too many to list. I’m sure this is something you can easily research on your own by searching for a short history of England or famous people in English history. This is an easy assignment which I am sure you are meant to do on your own.

You have to include David Cameron. He is the idiot politician who got the whole Brexit fiasco started..

William the Bastard had a pretty huge impact.

Get a copy of the high school text book “Adventures in English Literature” by J. B. Priestley and Josephine Spear, series editor Mary Rives Bowman printed by Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc.
It will list all of the important people at the beginning of each section.

Check out movements of peasants – they are studied now and considered to be equally important as royals and gentry, as far as their impact on history.

William the Conqueror.

That’s his formal name, but your teacher will give you an automatic A, if you refer to him as Billy the British Butt Kicker. ;-)

Paul Revere and his followers made a pretty big impact.
