Here’s What Iconic Historical Figures Would Look Like Today

Sometimes learning about historical figures can be boring. Wouldn’t it be much more exciting if the historical figures were given a present-day transformation? An artist named Becca Saladin has been transforming historical figures into modern-day people. From Mona Lisa to Marie Antionette, she is reimagining them all. Prepare for your history books to get a new modern twist. 

Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen who was known for her role in the religious revolution. She had many nicknames, including “Lady of all Women.” Maybe she was the first feminist icon.

As a Roman dictator, Julius Caesar played a critical role in the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire. He was also the first Roman General to cross the English Channel and the Rhine River.

Queen Elizabeth I was the daughter of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII (both on our list). Her parent’s marriage was annulled, and she was declared illegitimate.  That has got to hurt her ego.

Alexander The Great

Alexander the Great was the king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon. By the age of thirty, he created one of the largest empires in the ancient world. It is said that he had heterochromia, meaning his eyes were two different colors.

Agrippina was a roman empress and one of the more prominent women in the Julio-Claudian Dynasty. We love a powerful female figure! Although she was known to be ruthless, violent, and domineering, so we can’t really praise her that much.

King Tutankhamun

King Tutankhamun was an Egyptian Pharaoh who was the last of the royal family to rule during the end of the 18th dynasty.
