It's times like these I wish I had assayed the grim arts of necromancy, that I might raise the carcass of Henry Luce to shamble the halls of his once-proud magazine, feasting on the flesh of twenty-something idiots.

You forgot King John the 1st of France whose father died before his birth. He got to be king at the very moment of his birth, only to die 5 days later...

Jesus Christ was the most anticipated baby of all time.

@rcola Really?  What % of the world's population was anticipating Jesus, that would be one measurement.  Another would be total number of people anticipating.  I doubt that Jesus comes even close to  Baby Royal or North East West South whatever this baby's name is.  Now, if the question was about "importance" or "relevance" or "most likely to indirectly influence religious leaders to major wars and billions dead" then JC might be head of the list.
