"History’s ultimate insult"

"He doesn’t even ...have a Wikipedia page."

Thus saith Dr. Beachcombing in his Bizarre History Blog. Have a look at the most recent entry, on Madog, Prince and Poem for another meditation on the obscure.

    Most historical figures _don't_ have a Wikipedia page, since they routinely delete articles about "minor" noblemen and other figures who haven't been the subject of a major motion picture yet. But they do have thousands of articles about every obscure video game character and the weapons they use (there's an article called "List of Megaman Weapons") as well as soap opera stars, porn stars, etc, etc. But most historical figures are not considered "notable" enough for inclusion.
