Don’t believe everything you hear, especially when it comes to thousands year old history lessons. We’ve put together a list of 31 historical figures that may or may not have been real. Since history can be interpreted in different ways and isn’t an exact science, we may be learning some inaccurate information. Some of this information may be so inaccurate that people we look up to and admire may have never even existed! From ancient scholars to religious figures to philosophers, we can’t be entirely sure that some famous historical figures ever actually walked this earth. They could literal or figurative. It’s up to you to decide what to believe.
