    I just notice that Alvaro de Bazan is in the list.
    But Santa Cruz is already in the game!
    Also feels rather bad that the system has no place for (political) thinkers or sociologists in general (though sociologists tends to write stuffs so we can have them as writers). If there is such a category then we can lump Plato, Machiavelli, Locke, Hobbs, Rousseau, Spencer, Marx and the like in there.
    Anyway, proposing Emile Durkheim and Herbert Spencer as....probably writers or scientists.

    Machiavelli is already in Civ6 as a great writer. I'll try to find a place to put the others you mentioned.

    Ok, I added all of those, either as a Great Merchant or Scientist. I used Harland David Sanders instead of Colonel Sanders, though, because that might have a copyright. I couldn't find a Wiki page for Earle Swensen.

    As a Great Merchant? I'll add him. It should be ok as long as the name Coca-Cola isn't used.

    His ability would be to create the generic "cola" luxury resource. No need to mention Coca-Cola specifically.

    Daniel K Ludwig: Only can be used on a harbor. Trade routes from this city give double benefits.
    Babe Ruth: Only can be used on a entertainment district. Instantly creates a stadium. Stadiums throughout your empire produce gold equivalent to their amenities.
    H. L. Hunt: Oil derricks and offshore platforms in your empire produce +1 gold and +1 production.
    Thomas Twining: Get a copy of tea luxury. Plantations over tea or coffee produce +1 culture.

    Shaka and Chandragupta should be removed from the wishlist, and Timur should replace Genghis Khan in "great generals that are in game" section :p

    Tamar doesn't think that is the best deal ever made with the devil, and
    demands a tribute.

    After all, one cannot spell his name using the common Hepburn Romanization without a certain word.

    I'll put Yama****a in the same boat as Isoroku Yamamoto (Japan's Erwin Rommel) and Hideki Tojo (Japan's Adolf Hitler), too controversial for Civ6.....I'm not familiar enough with Togo Heihachiro's life to judge him.

    Yes, he's the Romantic-era German pianist and composer famous for his suite of piano études, one of which is about the Romani, albeit with a less politically correct name.

    Gian Lorenzo Bernini should be definitely added among the great artists. His statues are increddible.

    And while we're at it, you can add some Czech people: Wenceslas Hollar, Petr Brandl, Karel Škréta, Jan Kupecký, Matthias Braun and Jan Brokoff, too.

    Oh, and Master Theodoric of Prague, who worked for Charles IV.
