Mao Zedong, Chinese Communist revolutionary and leader, c1950s-c1960s(?). Artist: Unknown

Mao Zedong, Chinese Communist revolutionary and leader, c1950s-c1960s(?). The son of a peasant farmer, Mao Zedong (Mao Tse Tung) (1893-1976) led the Red Army which undertook the epic Long March and overthrew the Nationalist Chinese dictator Chiang Kai-Shek in 1949. As Chairman of the People's Republic of China and of the Chinese Communist Party he set about transforming China, but his attempt to modernise the country's industrial base (the Great Leap Forward) and the disastrous Cultural Revolution caused dramatic upheavals in Chinese society. After his death in 1976, his successors introduced social and economic initiatives that reversed many of Mao's policies.

Akhenaten, Ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, 14th century BC (1926). Artist: Winifred Mabel Brunton

Akhenaten, Ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, 14th century BC (1926). After he ascended to the throne in c1350 BC Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV) set about transforming the religion of Ancient Egypt, replacing the existing polytheism with a monotheistic cult of worshipping Aten, the god of the disc of the Sun. In addition, he decreed that Egypt's capital was to be moved from Thebes to a new site 180 miles to the north, to be named Akhetaten (modern El-Amarna). These massive upheavals generated growing opposition to Akhenaten, particularly amongst the priesthood. In c1334 BC Akhenaten died and Egypt turned its back on his reforms. The city of Akhetaten was abandoned and Egyptians returned to worshipping their traditional gods. A print from Kings and Queens of Ancient Egypt, portraits by Winifred Brunton, Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1926.
