There are certain people who are known to millions all over the world. Their accomplishments marked the beginning of a new legend and they are gradually rising in popularity every year. However, the funny thing about it all is that none of these people are real. That’s right, some of your favorite historical figures, authors and icons are actually fictional! So here are some of our favorite people with worldwide famous names who turned out to be a fiction.

Mulan

If you don’t know who Mulan is, go watch the Disney movie. It’s awesome! But meanwhile, let me give you some facts about this lovely character. In fact, there are no facts or recordings of Mulan existence at all. According to the legend, Mulan was a Chinese warrior princess who dressed up as a man to fight in combat. Disney managed to tell her story pretty accurate, which in turn made us believe she actually existed.

William Shakespeare

Who doesn’t know William Shakespeare? He gave us Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Macbeth. So, how could he be a fake? Turns out, many believe he is just a pen name, and the person or persons who wrote those classics might be now lost in oblivion.

Jack Dawson

I have always thought that Jack Dawson was a real person. But unfortunately, our beloved sweet and handsome Jack is a fiction. Ok, just to be quite honest, there was a Jack Dawson on board of the Titanic, but he was a slave, not an artist who lived under the bridge.

Robin Hood

Robin Hood – a noble thief (can you say that?) who stole from the rich and gave to the poor. This legendary folk hero has captured our hearts and taught us so much. He taught us that you always have to have a clear plan and appreciate and respect your team. He taught us that you can change your position in life. But most importantly, to never give up. Robin Hood was amazing, too bad he was also fictional.
