It’s not uncommon to think of historical figures as being serious people – and ‘historical figures’ doesn’t imply only the dead, of course – but really they were and are human beings just like everyone else. Historical figures in real life had their moments of greatness but they also had their moments of goofing around and enjoying themselves. If anything, it’s the eccentric historical figures that are all the more endearing for their quirks and willingness to be themselves; after all, would we remember Einstein so fondly without that picture of him sticking his tongue out at the camera?
Check out the list below to see some incredible photos of historical figures having fun as they laugh, joke around, and expose their vulnerabilities.
