Simon Bolivar, arguably the single most important figure in the History of South America, personally liberated Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru from Spain over the course of fifteen bloody years of campaigning, fighting, traveling and politicking. The ironic part? As son of an extremely wealthy Venezuelan family, he had much to lose by upsetting the status quo.
