    of history flatter these individuals in stories. Their admirable traits make them very susceptible to immortalisation through myth and legend. Two individuals who have been thus immortalised are Roman gladiator Spartacus and Scottish rebel William Wallace. They continue to inspire people to strive for freedom.
