Ernesto 'Che' Guevara

Ernesto 'Che' Guevara was born into a wealthy family in Argentina in 1928 and trained as a doctor, but became radicalised by the poverty and hunger he witnessed in South America. He played a key role in the Cuban revolution and served in Fidel Castro's government. He then travelled to Bolivia to lead the rebellion there, where he was executed by the Bolivian and US forces in 1967. In 1997 his remains were discovered and returned to Cuba, where he was reburied.
