No. The first image is a pretty famous one. If you get what that is, it is pretty easy after that.

I'm pretty sure eugene would answer this as soon as he sees it, so I was counting on some of the others to get this correct to maintain the gap between our scores :)

Well, I know the first image is, but I couldn't make sense of the rest so I started to work on translations of Alexander the Great, hence Grandhomme ... However, I'm totally clueless. I'm looking forward to the explanation :?

May be we are looking at a contemporary of his?

We are looking at different languages for different images here, probably fittingly too, for the person in question.

That's a brilliant answer!
Sikandar is the Persian name of Alexander. That painting of picture 1 was him defeating the Persian king. Raza means race in Spanish and yes, I could have used a different picture for the third one and could have invited the ire of the admins :D

Great to know these type of questions are liked too, provides motivation to manufacture more on those lines, but will try to keep them a little easier...

Will update the scores in a while.
