New Timeline: Heroes of Plutarch's Lives

The Timeline of Plutarch's Lives presents the lifespans of the characters presented in one of the most influential biographical works in history. Among others, Napoleon Bonaparte used to carry the Lives with him on his campaigns, and the book is also featured at the bottom of J.L. David's painting "Napoleon in his study in the Tuileries Palace."

The Wikipedia entry on the Parallel Lives and the appropriate articles on individual characters provided the basis for the timeline.
