Famous Faroese?

In her interview with the Faroe Islands Podcast, Linda Andrews says she wants to eventually become the best known Faroese person ever.

That got us thinking: who is the best known Faroese person ever? Eivor and Teitur have to be considered favorites from the current era. Going back a little further, Ove Joensen (the man who rowed from the Faroes to Denmark) could qualify. And then there's Nolsoy Pall, who fought the Danish trade monopoly in the early 1800s.

Linda's interview will be released early Monday. In the meantime, who do you think the best known Faroese person ever is? Leave a comment and let us know.
