Despite the fact that maintaining distance is the best way to show our concern for other people, still, by nature, a person is a social being, and we all lack contact with other people at the moment. However, there have been many times in history when people were against their will or against their will.

Without a doubt, many people feel lonely in quarantine. Despite the fact that maintaining distance is the best way to show our concern for other people, still, by nature, a person is a social being, and we all lack contact with other people at the moment. However, there have been many times in history when people have become isolated from others on their own free will or against their will. You can find out about the loneliest people in world history right now.
- Simeon Pilar
At an early age, Simeon was sent a vision from God urging him to build a tall pillar. At first he came to the monastery, but due to his habit of wearing a rope tightly around the body, he was thrown out, due to which jealousy of other sages started rotting and stinking flesh.
She then began to live as a goddess on a mountain, but soon the crowd started approaching her, mistaking her for a saint. To hide from them, Simeon erected a pillar and began to live on its summit for the next 36 years in fasting and prayer. However, many wanted to see the sermon on a column, and he threw it into the crowd. As the years passed, he raised the height of his “home” to stay away from the people below. After his death, he was immediately declared a saint.
- Blanche Monier
Blanche Monier never intended to live in isolation. Born in a wealthy French family in 1849, she did not need money and was beautiful. Unfortunately, she was the most heartless mother. In 1874, when Blanche was 25 years old, she announced her intention to marry her mother. Her choice of an ordinary lawyer was not approved by Madame Monier. Blanche changed her mind, her mother locked her in a small room in the attic of a house. Mother and brother Blanche lived a normal life, while Blanche herself lived in mud and without sunlight.
Madame Monier clearly thought that Blansch would change his mind after getting married after sitting alone for some time, but it didn’t work out that way. Therefore, the mother continued to keep her daughter close. Blanche spent the next 25 years in isolation in the attic. In 1901, an anonymous letter describing Blanche’s living conditions was given to the police. During the search, Blanche was discovered in a small stinky room in the attic. She lay on a formidable litter between her excreta and the leftover food. He weighed a little over 25 kilograms.
- Juliana Norwich
The Norwich of Julian, who lived in the 14th century, was able to isolate and maintain a relationship with the people together. She voluntarily creates a “wall” in a room next to the church to show that she is now “dead” to the world. The hole in the wall allowed him to see the altar in the church, receive communion, and take food. These hives also allowed visitors to talk the sermon.
In 1413, another religious woman, Margery Kempe, visited Julian. Both these women are considered to be the founders of the history of English literature. Margery wrote the first autobiographical text in English, and Juliana was the author of the first book in English written by a woman whose manuscript has been preserved. Juliana can be relieved in a moment from one of the revelations from God – “Everything will be alright.”
- Robert Falcon Scott (or someone from his team)
Robert Scott is a British Antarctic explorer, winner of the South Pole. During the first campaign, his team advanced further south than anyone else. During the second campaign, he achieved his dream – the South Pole, but the tragedy was that when his 5-man team reached the pole, he found that the Royal Amundsen-led rival team was five weeks ahead of him.
Robert Scott and his comrades died of cold, hunger and physical exhaustion. It is not known who was the last survivor of their expedition, but whoever it was, felt very alone.
