SENNA PIQUET FITTIPALDI

Juan Bautista Alberdi.
Wrote our real constitution, implemented Minarchist Libertarianism, Abolished Slavery and gave equal rights to all immigrants and Native Americans, gave full Province Autonomy to our Provinces.
He got fucked cuz he didn't see 2 waves of millions of French Communist immigrants coming, but otherwise we'd still be a Top5 first world country.
Charles Martel, we would need him now more than ever too.
In the history of the PRC, Deng Xiaoping. I don't know where China would be in terms of economics and living standards without his reforms
Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim

Geralt of Rivia
Perez Jimenez, basically a dictator that take on his powers and actually made the country an agro-industrial economic power in the 50s and 60s (and also rekted plenty of lefties)
timur, mete han, ertugrul, alp arslan , fatih sultan mehmet, suleyman the magnificent, abdulhamit II and ofc erdogan
Viking King Knud (Canute) the Great.
Ruled Denmark 1018-1035, England 1016-1035 and Norway 1028-1035 + chunks of Sweden, while forging an alliance with the Normans (former Vikings). That was the culmination of Viking power.
Replaced by incompetent sons at his death, and England + Norway was lost.
It created a power vacuum, with Saxons, Norwegian Vikings and Normans fighting for control of England. Saxons defeated norwegians at Stamford Bridge, but where themselves defeated by the Normans at Hastings in 1066 ... ending the viking age.

Aníbal Milhais aka Soldier Millions
Hm... I dunno, in 500 years of history I can't name ONE hero that my country had and was flesh and bone Brazilian.
If by National you mean that he just changed our History, I would say José Bonifácio de Andrada ( portuguese "Mentor" of Pedro I of Brazil, more important than the Emperor himself).
Maybe you can stretch being Hero to accomplish something worldwide, and in this case we have a bunch of people.
Franklin Roosevelt (FDR) easily top 1
George Washington (not as much these days because slaves)
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

BANDERA PRUYDE PORYADOK NAVEDE

Non-political or military Wright Brothers
Much of Gediminid Dynasty
We have a lot. One of the biggest is Stepan Bandera ofc.
Aleksi Lehikoinen (gettomasa) or Erna Husko
He suffered tragedy after tragedy in his life but he still stayed strong and kept our country together when it was falling apart.
