FICTITIOUS AND REAL CHARACTERS OF HISTORY
In the world of literature, cinema and theatre there are a lot of characters who seem so real that you would probably cost to difference if they were real or fictitious. According to this news “one in five Britons think that some imaginary characters were genuine historical figures” some people have problems for differentiating between.

Apparent distortion of the reality does that, characters as for example: Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, Indiana Jones or Doctor Who, seem real. It has an easy explanation: you pass a lot of hours reading or watching their adventures as for thinking that they really are part of our life and history, and what you know about them is based on real historical figures.

If Sherlock Holmes wasn’t a fiction character, he would solve who Jack the Ripper was.

On the contrary, you can think that characters as for example Jack the Ripper, Jesus Christ, Sir Lancelot or even the general George Armstrong Custer were more typical of the imaginary legends on books, TV and cinema than from reality, when really they were real people.

It is true that sometimes one doesn’t know if somebody was fiction or real, luckily we have the Wikipedia for checking it.
