10. Ching Shih
Redditor randomguy987654321 answered, “The life story of Ching Shih. She was a Chinese prostitute that became the deadliest pirate of all time. At the height of her power, she commanded over 800 large ships, 1000 smaller vessels, and over 70,000 pirate crews, comprised of both men and women.”
Redditor mukenwalla voted, “The year 1066 when the Vikings invaded England. Then, the Normans invaded England. Massive amounts of drama too.” Vegetable-Double added, “Judging by how important that event was in English and subsequently Western history, I’m surprised they haven’t tried to make a blockbuster movie out of it.”
Lyceus_said, “I’d like to see something about the construction of the Egyptian Pyramids. Either Snefru, who built three pyramids during his lifetime, or his son Khufu who built the Great Pyramid.” Redditor marble8888 suggested, “The construction of the pyramids needs a workplace comedy, if anything.”
