Simon Bolivar

A statue of Simon Bolivar (his entire name was Simón José Antonio de la Santísima Trinidad Bolívar Palacios y Blanco) who was a very important leader in Southern America's fight for independence from Spain (he helped Bolivia, Colombia, Panama, Peru, Ecuador and his native Venezuela). He served as president for Venezuela, Peru, Colombia and Bolivia, even serving for three countries at once (Bolivia, Colombia and Peru). The photo was taken in Lisbon, Portugal.
