For some reason, this question just popped into my head. For me, it’s Washington and Kennedy.
Anyone else of note? Off the top of my head, I’ve visited Charles Lindbergh’s grave on Maui. Benjamin Franklin in Philadelphia (along with some other early-American patriots in the same cemetery such as Dr. Benjamin Rush).
Saw Ho Chi Minh in Hanoi. (But oddly, despite visiting Tiananmen Square in Beijing several times, I never could be bothered to see Mao.)
I’ve been to Westminster Abbey (various British royals), The Pantheon (various French heroes) and St. Peter’s Basilica (various popes). Also Napoleon’s tomb, Mao’s mausoleum, and Sun Yat-Sen’s mausoleum.
I have seen the preserved bodies of:
Chairman Mao (Beijing)
Kim Il Sung (Pyongyang)
And been to the tombs / burial places of:
Kemel Ataturk (Ankara)
Habib Bourguiba (First President of Tunisia) (Monastir, Tunisia)
Ayatollah Khomeini (Tehran)
Josip Broz Tito (Belgrade)
Sir Edward Muteesa II (Kampala, Uganda)
Haile Selassie (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia)
And one Mausoleum with nobody buried there:
Enver Hoxa Hoxha (Tirana)
And some ancient rulers:
Timur (Samarkand, Uzbekistan)
Cyrus the Great (Pasargadae, Iran)
Shrine of Imam Reza (Mashhad, Iran)
Shrine of Fatima (Qom, Iran)
King David the Builder (near Kutaisi, Republic of Georgia)
and possibly others.
John F. Kennedy (at Arlington National Cemetery)
Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee (also at Arlington, but not on the tourist map so I had to ask where they were)
Alexander Hamilton (Trinity Church in lower Manhattan)
When I was at Kennedy’s grave, only Robert was also buried nearby. I believe that Jackie and Ted are also there now. And oddly, I’ve also been to Kennedy’s (Brookline, MA) and Hamilton’s (Charlestown, Nevis) birthplaces.
I think I’ve seen only Washington, Jefferson, and Kennedy. But now you’ve gone and put the idea in my head, so I won’t be able to rest until I’ve visited them all. By reference to the Wikipedia’s list of presidential burial places, I estimate I’ve been with 15 miles of 19 more graves and within 50 miles of about five more than that. Now I’m kicking myself for not making those side trips.
