does it have to be someone overwhelmingly famous or influential in total history or could it be a smaller person who played a smaller part?

I think it would be ok if it were someone less well known but not too much so as then it would be difficult for your partner to research and craft for. If it was someone indigenous to one place say or a relative or something then it would be alot more difficult for someone to craft. On the other hand, you might pick as your figure someone not very well known who, say, fought in the first world war (for example) and then your partner could craft along that theme/period rather than crafting around that person specifically.  i think as long as you can find enough information to get a good idea then it should be ok. You can always talk and discuss it with your partner.

Yay! I just sent my info. I'm hyped.

I wonder what the ratio of female to male figures will be. Did anyone else   end up with mostly women?

haha velour, mine were pretty much all women! You cant help but feel respect for women who have managed to stick out in a male orientated history

My list has plenty of testosterone. Which is odd, because I'm signed up for the Feminist Swap at the same time.

Yay!  I just signed up.  I hope the historical figures I chose are interesting enough to craft things for.  I can't wait to see what everyone else is doing!
