#-6 Erik the Red
Erik the Red
Greatest Person Ever #-6 is the tremendously important Viking, father of Leif and namer of Greenland, Erik Torvaldsson. Exiled from Iceland in 982 for, you guessed it, murder, he sailed west and found the land he would name Greenland.
Brilliant explorer, beloved patron of Death/Media, Erik the Red, we salute you!
