Called Charley by his friends, he was also known as Charles Bolton, C.E. Bolton and Black Bart the Poet. Considered a gentleman bandit, he was one of the most notorious stagecoach robbers to operate in and around Northern California and southern Oregon during the 1870s and 1880s.

Bill Tilghman was one of the most famous Lawmen of the Old West, but he didn't start out that way, as in his early days he was arrested for theft, but he was appointed city Marshal of Dodge, in 1884 and wore a badge made of two $20 gold pieces. Tilghman was involved in the capture of Jennie "Little Britches" Stevens, and Cattle Annie McDougal near Pawnee Oklahoma in 1894.

"Pretty Boy" Floyd (2/3/1904-10/22/1934), known as Choc to his friends, was popular & respected throughout the Oklahoma hill country, but to small-town bankers all over the Heartland, he was just another thief and killer. Among the poor he took on a sort of Robin Hood reputation as one who burned farmers' mortgages when he robbed their bankers, though there is no credible evidence he ever did such thing.

Charles Arthur "Pretty Boy" Floyd - " ... an honest hard working young man." When finally tracked down by FBI agent Melvin Purvis and his agents, including local Ohio police in October 1934, the bank robber was only wounded in the shootout. Two local policemen who participated in the capture later stated that Purvis bent over Floyd and disarmed the gangster, spoke to him briefly, then stood up and ordered Special Agent Herman Hollis to finish off Pretty Boy. Hollis shot him dead.

Eleanor of Aquitaine- one of the wealthiest and most powerful women in Western Europe during the High Middle Ages. As well as being Duchess of Aquitaine in her own right, she was queen consort of France (1137–1152) and of England (1154–1189). She was the patroness of such literary figures as Wace, Benoît de Sainte-More, and Chrétien de Troyes. She also went on the Crusades with her husband. Really fascinating woman! #WHM

Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of France, Queen of England -my 26th ggm. (1122 or 1124 – 1 April 1204) was one of the wealthiest and most powerful women in western Europe during the High Middle Ages and a member of the Ramnulfid dynasty of rulers in southwestern France. She became Duchess of Aquitaine in her own right while she was still a child, then later Queen consort of France (1137–1152) and of England (1154–1189). She was the patron of literary figures such as Wace, Benoît de Sainte-Maure, and Bernart de Ventadorn. Eleanor's succession to the duchy of Aquitaine in 1137 made her the most eligible bride in Europe. Three months after she became duchess, she married King Louis VII of France, son of her guardian, King Louis VI. As Queen of France, she participated in the unsuccessful Second Crusade. Soon after, Eleanor sought an annulment of her marriage, but her request was rejected by Pope Eugene III. However, after the birth of her second daughter Alix, Louis agreed to an annulment in consideration of her failure to bear a son after fifteen years of marriage. The marriage was annulled on 11 March 1152 on the grounds of consanguinity within the fourth degree. Their daughters were declared legitimate and custody was awarded to Louis, while Eleanor's lands were restored to her. As soon as the annulment was granted, Eleanor became engaged to Henry, Duke of Normandy, who became King Henry II of England in 1154. Henry was her third cousin (cousin of the third degree), and nine years younger. The couple married on 18 May 1152 (Whit Sunday), eight weeks after the annulment of Eleanor's first marriage, in a cathedral in Poitiers, France. Over the next thirteen years, she bore Henry eight children: five sons, three of whom would become kings; and three daughters. However, Henry and Eleanor eventually became estranged. Henry imprisoned her in 1173 for supporting her son Henry's revolt against her husband, and she was not released until 1189 when Henry died (on 6 July), and their son ascended the English throne as Richard I. Now queen dowager, Eleanor acted as regent while Richard went on the Third Crusade where he was captured and held prisoner. Eleanor lived well into the reign of her youngest son John. By the time of her death, she had outlived all her children except for King John and Queen Eleanor of Castile.
Eleanor of Aquitaine: A Life (Ballantine Reader's Circle) by Alison Weir, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0345434870/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_F.5Gpb1CS2DTZ Alison Weir's biography of Eleanor is the best; she tells us about this powerful woman kept captive for years who wed two kings, was mother to three kings and ruled England for years while Richard was away.

Muhammad Ali (b Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr.; January 17, 1942) is an American former professional boxer, generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the sport's history. A controversial and polarizing figure during his early career, Ali is today widely regarded for the skills he displayed in the ring plus the values he exemplified outside of it: religious freedom, racial justice and the triumph of principle over expedience.
“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can't hit what the eyes can't see.” ― Muhammad Ali
