    Well, if Miyamoto Musashi isn’t included in your history textbook, that’s probably because that textbook doesn’t include Japanese history. He might well be the most famous Japanese swordsman.

      We actually tried very hard to avoid duplication from that site. A tough job considering how old and successful the site it is.

    Erm i dont know where you take the history of galvarino but its a little different.

    Yeah he was capture and the spanish take off his hands, then he left to his people and he gather all to keep fighting againts the spanish no matter the cost. Thats all.

    There is another good warrior Mapuche, Lautaro, Caupolican for example.

    But Lautaro was the best Toqui and the best warrior.

    And yeah im from Chile so sorry for my bad english

    How can you have Galvarino at number 1 if the story is a bit fuzzy and no proof of that whatsoever?

    The list cannot be complete without great Baba Deep Singh ji. He kept fighting with Mughals in India’s Punjab even after getting decapitated holding his head with one hand and killing enemies at age of 70+!!

      Its supposed to be about the warriors that are less known. Everyone knows Lu Bu and Achilles

    It’s kind of pathetic that you can compose such a list without naming the vikings. I would say that they, indisputably, are some of the greatest, if not the greatest warriors, the world have ever seen. Bear in mind that young viking boys had to go through the same treatment that of Spartans, namely they were sent into the wilderness to come back true warriors. The only difference was that the vikings were far superior i physical strength.

    The last but not the least knigth was forgoten in this list
    Pierre Terrail, seigneur de Bayard 1473 – 30 April 1524
    He was the epitome of chivalry a skilled general and a great cavlier en swodsman
    In the Battle of Garigliano he single-handedly defended the bridge of the Garigliano against 200 Spaniards ( it’s not a typo).
    He was mortaly wounded by an arquebus ball in 1524 and
    he died in the midst of the enemy, attended by Pescara, the Spanish commander, and by his old comrade, Charles, duc de Bourbon, who was now fighting on the opposite side. Charles is reported to have said “Ah! Monsieur de Bayard… I am very sad to see you in this state; you who were such a virtuous knight!” Bayard answered,

    “ “Sir, there is no need to pity me. I die as a man of honour ought, doing my duty; but I pity you, because you are fighting against your king, your country, and your oath.” ”

    Dude, Your list is incomplete unless you add the most important Muslims warriors, Khaled bin Walid and Salauddin Ayyubi.

    All the list are incorrect because in list you dont enter the muslim warriors like zulqarnain . khalid bin walid who fight against 60 thousand enemies while he has only 60 sahaba with itself. And still he get victory.

    How is Tlaxcala hard to pronounce? It sounds like how it’s spelled. (Tlax – ca – la). Only 3 sylables.
