Rosalind Franklin

I remember watching a documentary about the discovery of the double helix of DNA, and they mentioned a woman named Rosalind Franklin. I looked her up and she worked at the Kings College with her assistant and she was one of the first people to actual figure out the shape of DNA. Her life story is very interesting, plus she’s incredibly beautiful

Georges Couthon.

French lawyer, revolutionary and politician. Close to Maximilien Robespierre. As the French Revolution grew nearer, Couthon started to become disabled due to advancing paralysis in both legs. While doctors diagnosed Couthon with meningitis in 1792, Couthon blamed his paralysis on the frequent sexual experiences of his youth; although he began treating his condition with mineral baths, he grew so weak by 1793 that he was confined to a wheelchair (from Wikipedia). He was guillotined with the robespierrists in 1794.
