Fidel Castro, with his towering stature, scraggly beard, and love of cigars, was the longtime dictator of Cuba and a major player on the 20th century world stage. Both his tenacity and fiascos like the Cuban Missile Crisis proved a thorn in the US's side (there were hundreds of attempts by the US government on his life, none of which were successful). Fidel's ill health late in life forced his younger brother, Raul, to assume duties, and he finally died in November 2016 at the age of 90.
