    So, like in the title, I'm interested who you're famous related too (if you feel free to share it with us). The persons can be still alive or one of your ancestors. It can be someone known to the world or to your country (mayors and such shit don't count). The only rule is DON'T BLOODY MAKE IT UP! Be honest and feel free to share it with us. I'm very interested to see the responds and I bet others do too. :)

    I'm not related to anyone famous, thought i do have one noble Likaner that fought in Austro-Hungary against Prussians and was made a noble in direct ancestry over my grandfather with me, and in fact my family in Lika is still of great importance for the local communities. He was my great-great-great grandfather and recieved a Barun rank in Austro-Hungary and was incorporated in order of Military Order of Maria Theresa. However none in the family anymore gives a damn about it except me i guess lol.

    Our coat of arms:

    (had to erase the surname)

    Cannons represent the destroyed Prussian cannons by my relatives Austro-Hungarian unit he commanded.

    As far as I know, my ancestors for the past 200 years have been villagers (farmers), nothing more. However, during WWII, my great-uncle formed a militia in the Bihor region of Montenegro; I think it was called Muslimanska (Domobrana) Milicija (something like that). Originally they were neutral, but when the Partisans took over, they cooperated with them. However, at one point during the war, they allowed some Chetniks (Royal Yugoslav soldiers) through the region protected and the Yugoslav Partisans found out, and put my great-uncle on trial.

    Apparently he's known in the region.

    Well this is one of my most famous ancestors from my House (people now actually care to learn about):

    Muhamed Hadzijamakovic

    Prvi Bosnjak iz Sarajeva koga je austrijski prijeki sud poslao na vjesala je Muhamed Hadzijamakovic, imam i nastavnik Gazi Husrev-begova Hanikaha u Sarajevu. Rodjen u Sarajevu 1814. u doba kada je po cijeloj Bosni harala kuga. Odrastao je i mladost proveo u najtezim danima Sarajeva. Skolovao se u Istanbulu. U hanikahu predavao cisto vjerske predmete i od njegovog vremena ova ustanova je postalo Medresom u pravom smislu te rijeci. Narodni odbor ga je izabrao za vodju otpora protiv Austrije.

    Prvih dana
    1878. Krenuo je Hadzijamakovic u susret neprijetljskoj vojsci. Hrabro se borio u svim okrsajima, od Zepca pa do Sarajeva . Najzesce je bilo
    kod Kaknja i Visokog. Hadzijamakovic je komandovao i otporom Sarajeva. Okupljenim braniteljima odrzao je poznati govor zavrsavajuci ga ovako:
    "Ko hoce postati Austrijanac taj moze ostati u gradu i sakriti se; a ko je Bošnjak, neka zgrabi oruzje i neka ide u borbu protiv mrskoga
    Svabe…". Pracen freneticnim odobravanjima krenio je ulicama Sarajeva, predvodeci borce spremne na otpor. Kad se nakon zestoke borbe 19.
    Augusta oko 8:00 sati ne vece zaleprsala nad Sarajevom crno-zuta austrijska zastava, Hadzijamakovic se sklonio u potkrovlje svoga doma u Arebi-atkin mahali. Odlucio je da ne bjezi. Branio je svoju zemlju svim srcem, videci to kao svoju svetu duznost i duznost svakog pravog Bosnjaka.

    Austrijske okupacione snage su 20. Avgusta 1878 uhapsile Muhameda Hadzijamakovica. Protiv njega je podignuta optuznica, a ispitivanje je trajalo tri dana. Izrecena je presuda: smrt vjesanjem. Hadzijamakovic je pred sudom priznao sve sto je ucinio u okviru otpora okupaciji. Za svoja djela
    nije se kajao niti oprosta trazio. Osudu je potvrdio general Filipovic i naredio njeno izvrsenje na licu mjesta, bez odlaganja. Hadzijamakovic
    je pruzio otpor i neposredno pred smrt. Jednom Austrijancu je oteo oružije i fatalno ranio ga. U tom momentu na njega su se okomili okupatorski vojnici i onesvijestili ga kundacima.

    Vjesala su postavljena na grani obliznjeg hrasta, nedaleko od Marijin-dvora pod Goricom. Hadzimajakovic je lezao u krvi, bez svijesti. Ulogu krvnika
    dobrovoljno je prihvatio husar Mihaly Boly, zeleci time osvetiti svoje suborce, koje je izgubio na putu od Maglaja do Zepca. Mrak se vec
    spustio nad popaljeno, u krvi uguseno, Sarajevo, kad su napola mrtvog Hadzijamakovica digli na vjesala. Tijelo ovog istinskog bosanskog
    heroja pokopano je u blizini vjesala. Muhamed Hadzijamakovic je umro hrabro, sehidskom smrcu, i njegovim primjerom ce se ponositi potonje
    generacije Bosnjaka.

    He gave one of the most memorable speeches at the Battle of the Last Stand/Battle for Sarajevo, which even today are found in history books in Bosnia, with the most memorable part being and which I have learned word for word:

    "…priča o Bosni je priča naših pradjedova, i šta znači biti Bošnjak. Bosna je kovačnica na kojoj je naš narod iskovan na sirovom i krvavom nakovnju historije. Sa svakim udarcem naših neprijatelja postajali smo jači, jači i prkosniji u licima onih koji bi nam zlo htjeli nanjeti…"

    "…Bog nas duzi da branimo svoje famililje, svoje domove i našu Bosnu od ropstva."

    Dio govora Muhameda Hadžijamakovića pred bitku za Sarajevo

    And reintroduced the old Bosnian flag from times of rebellions under Gradašević and Bosnian loyalists:

    Well, you all postet some very interesting stuff! :)

    Hmm, I guess they're nothing that special, except they've done something great or vere famous or important othervise too. Nice you mentioned nobility to. I was interested in that also.

    It seems it's my turn now, isn't it. He isn't a direct ancestor but he was related to me and we share almost the same surname. It's not such of a great deal though. Croatians should know him most as it's the sculptor Antun Augustinčić. He did some work in Yugoslavia and his sculpture was put on the 100 dinara bill.

    He also designed some Yugoslav orders/medals and sculptures. Our relation is funny as his surname ends with čić but my does with . That's because one part of the family lived in Hrvatsko Zagorje and one in Kozjansko (Slovenia) and that's where my grandpa comes from.

    Polde Bibič was a known Slovene actor (he died this summer). He was also my grandmas cousine. He played in Slovene movies and in theatre. He was awarded with some awards like Borštnikov prstan, Prešernova nagrada, Župančičeva nagrada and others. He's known among Slovenes but I personally never had contact with him… He gon on pretty well with grandma though. :)

    I'd (along with others) like to hear some more of your relations, so please keep on posting!

    Interesting + the coat of arms is identical to the town I lived in: Celje (Slovenia).

    There is nothing much to tell you really.The very first ancestor of this family came to Lithuania as farmers and worked in mills.They were very soon taken into dukedom as dukes and bayors.I do not know why is the coat of arms like that ,but it is said that it's original.The town of Joniškėlis was established by the Karpis family and was held for a very long time ,they even built a church there.

    I have a German surname in my family too among others, and it indicates someone was an owner of a whore-house during medieval times somewhere in Germanic world ;D however as i have read it was a good and respected business in those times ;D
