Famous Lovers Throughout History


We’ve dared to compile a list of great lovers throughout history. Both celebrities of the modern era, and writers and royalty of those past, our list hopes to get you thinking about how although these famous examples are presented to us as being the most passionate, and exemplary lovers to date, we probably all know ‘lovers’ who just as impressionable, in our lives!

From left to right: Giacomo Casanova, Romeo and Juliet, Lancelot and Guinevere, Napoleon and Josephine, Catherine the Great, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, the Butterfly Lovers, Elizabeth Taylor, Cleopatra, Poliphilo, and Lord Byron.

Of course, the list is miniscule in the grand scheme of things. Also, it only includes ‘famous’ people, both real and imagined, throughout history and doesn’t encompass everyone who’s lived and is living. Anyhow, we were bold enough to try and include a variety of notable people, some of whom fictional but evergreen as long as imagination remains an ability of the human mind.

Can you add to our list?

    I think your list is rather accurate, but as you stated also small. Please may i suggest a few additions? ST Valentine, Cupid, Aphrodite, but to name a few. I am well aware that this list could go on indefinitely, however I do hope my suggestions are of some help.
