If you're talking about the popularity of this or that person in their native countries and in the whole world ("the most famous" you say) i have no answer. I guess... Mohandas Gandhi. He made his people believe in better life and shared all their misfortunes and troubles. He is an extraordinary kind of leader!
Being Russian i defenetely say it's NOT LENIN! :|

The first leader game to mind is Peter I and the second was Napoleon.

You forgot famous classical leaders like Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar... and great modern ones, like George W. Bush, Wehrmacht general Gerd von Rundstedt, USA army general and Multi-National Force war hero George W. Casey, Jr...

How about business leaders, showbussiness leaders, feminist leaders...?
