Popular World Leaders as Anime Characters

With the power of Image prompting AI, we decided to create some of the world’s most-known Military and Elected leaders as anime characters. Now we decided to only go with people who are currently deceased and because we are reaching for many epic historical leaders, most of them don’t have actual images of themselves or even paintings so we used a lot of “Fan Art” as reference images in an order to create these prompts.

Note: If it isn’t clear enough just because we add certain popular historical figures here, doesn’t mean we subscribe to their ideas & actions obviously
