Historical figures are there to remind us of these famous personalities’ contribution to our history. There are the greats, like Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Napoleon, and many others. But as we only know them through their stories, histories, and images, have you ever been intrigued to see their faces today? What would these personalities look like had they been born today?

Thanks to technology and photoshop experts, we can get a glimpse of these famous historical figures images in the modern world. Without further ado, here are the list and pictures of these eminent personalities, to whom we should give all the credits, in our history if they are still alive today.

Jane Austen

If you are into books, you will surely know Jane Austen. The novelist has been receiving praise for her contribution to the literary world. Who does not know Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Sense and Sensibility? One way or another, she has been part of our teenage years, reading these novels either as a school activity or for our love for books.
If she is still alive until today, she may have one of the most beautiful faces on the planet, not to mention a smart girl, too. Born in the late 1700s, she was thinking incredibly straightforward, ahead of others. Every woman should give Jane the credit for fighting for women’s independence at a time that it was deemed impossible.

Cleopatra VII

In ancient history, Cleopatra was known for being the most beautiful woman on the planet. She was even often used as the image of different beauty commercials and advertisements. But aside from being the epitome of beauty, Cleopatra was actually a ruler. She was the last active ruler of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt.
She was also the companion of Alexander the Great, another famous historical figure. In contrast to popular belief, she was not entirely from Egyptian descent. To some degree, she was of Greek origin, a part of the Ptolemaic Dynasty. In the modern world, she would surely bear a gorgeous face to whom every man could fall in love.


Napoleon Bonaparte was a famous French statesman and a military leader who was an artillery commander during the French Revolution. In the modern world, he would indeed have a handsome face. But, he seemed to be relatively short compared to the men today. He only stood 5’7”. Although that seemed to be tall for some, for an average male height of today, it was not the standard.
Anyhow, it looked no one would care about his looks and height back then. As someone who conquered much of Europe in the early 19th century, he might be feared by some. Despite his stature, to some degree, the world still saw his downfall.

Botticelli’s  Venus

Venus is famously known as the painting of Sandro Botticelli. It is actually called the Birth of Venus. Allegedly, the painting depicts Simotta Vespucci, allegedly one of Botticelli’s lovers. However, in the painting’s details, the woman is said to represent the goddess of beauty, Venus, hence the name. In reality, if Venus is real and born during the modern era, she will indeed have an image of a goddess.
With fair skin and a beautiful face, she does not only like a goddess but an angel to a certain degree. Just like how Botticelli painted her innocence, the depiction of his modern image managed to keep this look.

Agrippina The Younger

Julia Agrippina, or better known as Agrippina the Younger, was a famous Roman empress. She was very powerful during her time, and of the most prominent and effective women in the Julio-Claudian dynasty. She was the younger sister of the Roman emperor Caligula, thus the name.
And in case you do not know, she is the mother of Nero. As there was no real image for the photoshop experts to use to depict Agrippina’s authentic look, her representation seemed to look pretty much the same as that of her face sculpture. To her credit, we could say she looked good, but she was said to be “ruthless and violent” in attitude.

Benjamin Franklin

American people surely know who Benjamin Franklin is. He was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He was a polymath, receiving praise and credits due to his vast knowledge. With his wit, he seemed to be the master of everything, from being a leading writer to a printer, political philosopher, politician, Freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat – the list went on.
In the modern world, Franklin could have the famous salt-and-pepper grey hair, ala George Clooney. He, too, seemed to be a good-looking dad or grandfather with a much-respected aura that was ready to change the world anytime.

Madame Du Barry

Madame Du Barry, Comtesse du Barry, was known as the last Maîtresse-en-titre or mistress of Louis XV of France. She was of the Reign of Terror’s victims during the French Revolution. In her modern image, it could never be denied that Madame had a beautiful face. She looked lovely, a young woman who could capture any man’s heart, including the King of France.
She had an unparalleled beauty that could keep pace with any new stars of today. She also had the Hollywood glamour, making her look like an A-lister. With this look, she might have made a considerable investment in her skin and body.

Queen Elizabeth I

Queen Elizabeth I is, reportedly, the first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II. However, it depends on who you ask. She was the Queen of England and Ireland from 1558 to 1603. Also called the Virgin Queen among many other names, she was the last of the five monarchs of the House of Tudor.
In her modern image, she had the usual image of the beautiful British woman – pointed nose, white complexion, curly blond hair, almond-shaped eyes, an oval face, and thin lips. As this seemed to perfectly capture her image in real life, we could commend the fantastic technology, and the experts did to turn her picture into a modern one. Well, of course, it would never be possible without electricity.


If you think Pocahontas is only a fictional character from the Disney film with the same name, nope, you are wrong. She was a Native American woman who was associated with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. She was the daughter of Powhatan, the chief of a network of tributary tribes in the Tsenacommacah.
Her real name was Amonute. The name Pocahontas was just given to her by distinction because of her playful attitude. In her modern look, she looked every degree a strong and brave woman. The artist perfectly captured her heart in this current representation of a young hero back in the day.

Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria is the great-great-grandmother of Queen Elizabeth II. She was the Queen of the United Kingdom and Ireland from 1837 to 1901. She did not just lead the U.K., but other countries too when she was named the Empress of India in 1876.
She reigned the Victorian era for about 63 years and seven months, a credit longer than her predecessors. In her modern image, we could safely say that she was one of the most beautiful women on this list. She did not only look elegant but glamorous, too – an exact image of a real queen and en empress.
