As the last thing that a person says before they leave this earth, some choose to go for a joke, a few words of wisdom, a heartfelt sentence, or even confessing to regrets they have.

When these¬†historical figures were on their deathbed, they couldn’t leave without saying a few words, and whilst some of these are pretty surprising, they are all legendary in their own way.
