Lorenz Peter Elfred Freuchen (February 2, 1886 – September 2, 1957) was a Danish explorer, author, journalist and anthropologist. He is notable for his role in Arctic exploration, especially the Thule Expeditions.

If there was anyone who deserves the crown of the “Biggest Badass in the World,” it’s this guy. Peter Freuchen was a legend. In his lifetime, this Danish explorer took on polar bears and wolves, wore their fur like a viking hero, wrote and starred in an Oscar winning movie, won a game-show, amputated his own toes and became a millionaire.
