Leonardo Da Vinci 1452-1519
Da Vinci invented Countless things, ranging from weapons, to air travel, to robots. Da Vincis brilliant mind as well as his fame made in high demand from lords for medical, tactical, and just plain old advice. One noble asked him to be incharge of entertainment at a festival, so naturally Da Vinci made a knight run on a complex system of levers and pulleys.

Johannes Guttenberg was the inventor of the printing press. This invention worked by laying metal letters on the press covering them with ink and then pushing down with a lot of force and pressure to transfer the ink onto the paper. This invention revolutionized the spread of knowledge, as well as record keeping. To prove how effective his invention was, Guttenberg printed the entire bible with 42 lines per page.
Galileo created his microscope from scratch, and after several prototypes he was able to magnify objects by 30x. The discoveries he made using his invention were disliked by the Catholic Church, which forced him to recant his findings.
