Perhaps one could add the name Margot Wallström. She has certainly put Sweden on the (un)diplomatic map.
Upsetting Israel, Russia and now Saudi Arabia, and she has only been in office a short time. Who is next in line for her attention perchance??

When Anna Lindh attempted similar goals, she was viciously murdered, apparently by Meir Dagan's Mossad, so I guess she should be added to the list.

"John Ericsson - The propeller (used on ships and planes) patented in 1836"

Additionally he devised the first armored gun turret used on the USS Monitor in the American Civil War...

Those inventions lead to the modern warships that ruled the seas before air planes made them obsolete...
