King Alfonso the Good (The Wise, The Learned) (1221-1284) Born: Toledo, Spain. Buried: Seville Cathedral, Seville, Spain.
The IWE states that "The legend (of El Cid) accumulated in Spanish ballads of the 12th century, and in the 13th King Alfonso the Good had them assembled into a unified epic". I am unable to find anyone identified as King Alfonso the Good who reigned in the 13th century in my cursory searches on the internet, nor any King Alfonso of the period who was notable for collating and unifying the Cid. This guy seems to be the most likely candidate.

Thomas Dixon (1864-1946) The Clansman (1905) Born: McFee House, Shelby, North Carolina. Buried: Sunset Cemetery, Shelby, North Carolina. College: Wake Forest.
I'm not sure why this is included on the list, as the IWE states that "The novel as a novel is worth reading only for those who are interested in what kind of literature has occupied the reading attenion of the American people and extended itself notably into collateral media of public expression". It is also among the more notoriously racist books in American history that achieved the level of popularity than it did, and was the source material for the most notoriously racist movie in American history, "The Birth of a Nation". That acknowledged, it is on the list, and as the list and what it encapsulates on the whole that have possessed my imagination, I will probably read it when the time comes, assuming I stick to the list.
