Yes, you read that right. According to ancient historian Rashid Al-din, Ghengis Khan – the great ancient marauder who terrorized much of Asia and Europe, burned many a town, and had over 2000 concubines – was a redhead. Many scoff at the idea of him being caucasian, worse yet a redhead with green eyes. However, when you think of it, who else fits the picture better than a hot-tempered red head?
Boudica was a queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire in AD 60 or 61, and died shortly after its failure, having supposedly poisoned herself. (Wikipedia)
Riding the pipe is downright a dangerous sport and it takes quite a thrill seeker to wish to surf such waves. Take red haired surfer Jamie O’Brien from Hawaii and you have the perfect example. Daredevil and immune from the apparent hazards of this sport including sunburn, O’Brien is a top contender. Recently at the Red Bull surf event in his home island, Jamie scored a perfect 10 and lost to another surfer. My first thought was this could only happen to a redhead.

No need to use chemicals to protect your skin from sunburn! Our pure, natural SPF 30+ sunscreen balm goes on smooth and is lightly scented with pure frankincense and myrrh essential oils.

Beeswax adds waterproofing. Our creamy formula absorbs well, leaving your skin soft and shining. Gentle, non-irritating, safe for babies.
To use: Apply 10-15min before sun exposure. Reapply as needed, and after swimming. Use common sense to avoid sunburn.
Tested on Ourselves! My husband (a redhead) and I both have very sensitive skin that burns, not tans. We were outside in direct sun by a lake for 2 hours during the hottest part of the day, and didn’t get burned wearing just one application of our sunscreen. Our 2 year old baby girl was also unscathed!
Note: Will stain dark clothing. Apply before getting dressed, and rub in well.
Known for gangster roles in those old black and white movies, James Cagney, with his high-energy, on edge tough persona, and raspy voice was unmistakable. Less obvious due to the films’ lack of color was the fact that he was a redhead.
As a defensive strategy, I’d rather see gingers use some of the negative stereotypes about them to their advantage. Let the world continue to think that redheads are demon-possessed witches with psychotic tempers who are impervious to pain.
Hey all of ya redheads in Montana- let’s have a party! With a large number of Irish immigrants to Montana, there must be a lot redheads in the area. Redheads are gathering all around the world(read more).We can make it happen. Pass the word!
After seeing so many redheads here in Missoula, I knew I had moved to the right place. I am not sure what draws people with red hair to this beautiful valley in the mountains but here we are anyways. There have been a large Irish immigration to the area including the nearby city of Butte which boasts to have had the greatest number of immigrants from Ireland to the USA during the copper mine days. In addition, I quite often meet gingers that have moved here from my home state of Minnesota, where based on my ancestry, can be Irish, German or Scandinavian-like Red-haired Vikings. My goal is to organize a redhead festival of Western Montana. Thanks for your help!
This is the motto of a red-haired festival in a location that might surprise: Russia. The Udmurtia ethnic nation claims to have the most red hair outside Ireland.
At first thought, the idea of redheads uniting around the world was a little perplexing. What would be the purpose? Personally, would I want to be around a bunch of people like myself? I guess I relish being unique in the world. In fact it might be a little scary, the thought that our red hair might all catch on fire or a big fight might break out. Perhaps take over the world!

“He’s not blessed in the looks department, he’s got carrot-red hair and freckles. But Nat is very charming and has a penchant for fast cars.
“At college, he was known as a babemagnet – at parties, the beautiful girls would flock to him like bees to honey. That’s what the name Rothschild does for you. Women seem to find it a very powerful aphrodisiac.”
Just how proud he would really be if the women loved him for his red hair and not his money. Only I know.
If you have ever watched the Simpsons, you’ve heard the music of Danny Elfman during the opening credits. Oh, let’s not forget the soundtracks to all those strange Tim Burton films. Personally I prefer his music of Oingo Boingo.
