Add your request in the most appropriate place below.

Before adding a request please:

Also, when adding a request, please include as much information as possible (such as webpages, articles, or other reference material) so editors can find and distinguish your request from an already-created article.

Remember to add your requested biographical article to Wikipedia:Requested articles/Biography/By profession too.

If the country of nationality to which your requested biography applies doesn't exist (anymore), create an appropriate subsection below, or ask an experienced Wikipedia user for help and advice, e.g. on formerly, historical nationalities, multiple nationality owning and stateless persons. Remember a request is just a temporary, embryonic stage of an article. It is the content of the article itself that makes the difference. Appropriate categorization will eventually sort the biographical article on the subject of applying nationality, ethnicity etc.
