In this blog, you will find summaries of biographies of world history, all the fascinating historical facts.

The word derives from the Latin historĭa, which was derived from the Greek ἱστορία (history), and whose meaning indicates research, information

By studying the past of human societies, we can go back a long way (many millions of years ago) to the origin of man, the beginning of life on Earth or the origin of the universe.

Before the 19th century, stories were treated for moralising and exemplary purposes, where the most important thing was that the great events should remain in people’s memories.

In this blog, we have great characters like Leonardo da Vinci, Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Socrates, Diogenes the Cynic, Aristotle.

We also cover the biographies of great presidents: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, among others.

Relevant people bequeathed us words to remember. Let us remember a very famous one universally.
